Darian King Disqualified After Frightening Lineswoman by Slamming His Racket

Darian King learned a valuable lesson in anger management and perhaps a bit of sensitivity over those who are easily frightened. 

During the Charlottesville Challenger tournament, King became very, very upset and slammed his racket into the wall behind him. 

Unfortunately, there was a lineswoman standing very close to said wall. Fortunately, he didn't hit her with his racket. 

He did manage to shock her—to the point of histrionics.

She collapsed making it appear as though he hit her with the racket. Replays show that the racket merely bounced off the wall and hit her. 

But the shock alone appeared to do the trick, as she collapsed to the ground and had to be attended to.

The commentator summarises as such: "Oh no. OK, I think we're done here." 

He was right, as King was disqualified for his anger.
