Man, 24, 'killed by his cousin, 14, from a chokehold they did while watching Wrestlemania'
When World Wrestling Entertainment says don’t try this at home, they mean it.
A 24-year-old man is dead after his 14-year-old cousin had him in a ‘rear choke hold’ and allegedly refused to relinquish his hold.
Though Stephan Arceneaux III was turning blue, the cousin let him go 30 to 40 seconds after he began the move.

Mr Arceneaux was pronounced dead at the hospital.
According to the St Charles Parish police report, Mr Arceneaux had several friends over to watch the pay-per-view event Wrestlemania 28.
During the showing at his home in Destrehan, Louisiana, he and his cousin began wrestling on an inflated air mattress on the floor.
After wrestling for a while, the teen, who is about 110 pounds, caught 220-pound Arceneaux in the chokehold.
The teen held him for 30 to 40 seconds, though Mr Arceneaux begged to be let go and asked to ‘tap out,’ the New Orleans Times-Picayune reported.

Deadly: The 24-year-old was reportedly in a chokehold, a move that often prevents the other person from breathing
When he let go, partygoers realised MR Arceneaux had stopped breathing, and they called 911.
Mr Arceneaux’s girlfriend tried giving him CPR, but he was unresponsive, and died at the hospital.
Sheriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Pat Yoes told the Times-Picayune that this accident was ‘bizarre.'
'When you have violent horseplay like that, it just goes to show you that anything can happen.’
An autopsy was conducted yesterday; however, no arrests have been made in Mr Arceneaux’s death.
