A preventing sport competitor who was as soon as accused of sexual assault and banned from a number of tournaments seems to have returned to play over the weekend.

In an Orlando, Florida competitors that came about between March 1-3, preventing sport competitor Andre “iOverthk” Howard positioned within the high 8 in a Avenue Fighter 6 match. On March 3, Howard tweeted: “Gone from the FGC for six years and Come again and get a high 8 inserting in a significant. Gang gang lol.” Many replied, asking Howard the place that they had been for the final six years and why that they had been “gone” from the FGC, with some sharing a 2018 Kotaku story detailing the accusations levied in opposition to them (no costs have been filed).

The FGC competitor, who now goes by the identify iOverthk (they used to compete as OmGiTzAndre), didn’t reply to the social media feedback.

The competitors Howard took half on this previous weekend was TNS 9, a FGC tourney that includes video games like Mortal Kombat and Smash Bros. In line with outcomes on Begin.GG, Howard competed in Tekken 8, Final Marvel vs. Capcom 3, and Avenue Fighter 6 occasions. They reached seventh within the SF6 occasion, tweeting about it and displaying an image of the TNS medal they obtained.

In 2018, Howard was banned from a number of preventing sport competitions after an episode of The On Blast Present podcast aired by which their peer Joey “Joey D” D’Alessandro accused Howard of raping his girlfriend. In that very same episode, co-host Melanie “MoxXiePeachez” Shaw claimed Howard assaulted the girl on the 2015 Northeast Championship, an occasion that, like TNS, featured a number of preventing sport competitions. Howard denied the allegations in a now-deleted YouTube video. Nonetheless, a number of the greatest preventing sport organizations on the earth banned them from their tournaments, together with Combo Breaker, Community Effort Orlando, Closing Spherical, and Big E Gaming.

Now, it seems that Howard is again on the aggressive FG scene, six years after the accusations in opposition to them have been first made. Kotaku has contacted Howard and TNS for remark.
