ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Two West Potomac High School students have been charged with hazing, Fairfax County police said.
Police began investigating the hazing allegations involving members of the baseball team in March after a staff member filed a report with an officer.
After interviewing several students and school staff, detectives determined that two students hazed another student in the boys’ locker room before a baseball game in 2016, police said.
The two students, who are both 17 years old, are both facing one count of hazing, a misdemeanor charge.
Fairfax County Public Schools said in a statement:
“School administrators began an investigation in March immediately after being made aware of the specific allegations and cooperated with law enforcement as they conducted their own investigation. The school's investigation concluded and resulted in appropriate disciplinary consequences being assigned to those responsible. Student disciplinary matters are confidential under privacy laws.”
