Tottori- The Tottori Summary Court ordered former sumo grand champion Harumafuji on Thursday to pay a fine of 500,000 yen for assaulting junior wrestler Takanoiwa in October last year.
The order followed public prosecutors' summary indictment last month against the 33-year-old former yokozuna from Mongolia.
The indictment said Harumafuji beat Takanoiwa, also Mongolian, in the face several times with his hand and in the head with a karaoke remote over drinks in Tottori in late October while wrestlers, including them, were on a sumo tour to the western Japan city.
Other Mongolian yokozunas Hakuho and Kakuryu were also present in the violence scene.
Takanoiwa suffered a head injury that took 12 days to heal, according to the indictment. Jiji Press
