Northbridge Students Punished in Hazing Case

NORTHBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Northbridge school officials say four junior football players have been punished for an alleged hazing incident that involved a freshman.

The police chief says the alleged victim and his parents told investigators they did not want to press charges, and the case is out of the police department’s hands.

Athletic Director Al Richards tells The Telegram & Gazette that the juniors have been “handed their penalties; they’re serving their penalties.” He described it as “kids being kids.”

School officials said they could not provide specifics about the punishment.

Police say the older students assigned the younger boy a physical task on Aug. 19 which he failed to complete, then pressured him to drink from a jug of urine.

Police say the boy took a sip and spit it out.
