HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Three students at Hutchinson High School are accused of forcibly branding other students on school property.

Police told The Hutchinson News (http://bit.ly/17DXh4g ) the students are accused of branding four other students on their abdomens with wire hangers. All of the students, including the victims, are on the football team.

Hutchinson Police Detective Paul Sack says police learned of the branding from parents of the alleged victims.

Ray Hemman, spokesman for the school district, says head football coach Randy Dreiling learned Thursday of an alleged hazing incident that possibly occurred Wednesday and turned the matter over to administrators and police.

One 18-year-old student is being held on various charges, including criminal restraint. Another 18-year-old was released on bond. A 16-year-old student is being held by juvenile authorities.
