Report: Police are requesting assault charges against 3 De La Salle football players involved in hazing

UPDATE: Warren police have now told WXYZ that the teens HAVE NOT been charged but they are requesting assault charges against the teens.

According to reports, 3 teen boys have been charged with assault in connection to a hazing incident with the De La Salle High School football team.

From WXYZ:

Just last week, the school announced it was canceling its football season and forfeiting a playoff game because of the allegations.

Police have been looking into claims that varsity football players used broom sticks in a sexual manner to haze younger players.

Dwyer would not comment on details of the investigation, only noting there was no penetration.

“It's not a culture of the school, it's not a culture of the football team,” said De La Salle parent Joe Hallman. He had three boys attend the school, and currently has a sophomore on the football team.

Hallman said he's not aware of who specifically is involved in the alleged hazing, and that most parents are not either. He told Action News he believes the actions of few are affecting many.

“These are teenage kids. And I feel horrible for the victim, but there’s three kids that were involved in this and they’re the ones that should be held accountable,” he told Action News.

Nation, if found guilty, what how should these teens be punished?
