We all know that competition can bring out the worst in people. We've seen it time and again, whether it's in sports, business, or everyday life. But sometimes, people take things too far. Just ask Jacob Runyan and Chase Cominsky from the Lake Erie Walleye Trail fishing event who were caught cheating when officials cut into their fresh fishes and pulled out hefty lead weights meant to pump them up on the scale.
