HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- Three Hutchinson High School football players are charged with branding younger students with heated wire hangers.
The Hutchinson News (http://is.gd/fw7tIC ) reports that Kendric Hudson and Jaiden Casanova, both 18, are free on bond after they were charged Tuesday with felony aggravated battery and misdemeanor hazing. The Reno County prosecutor's office says neither teen has an attorney listed.
A 16-year-old suspect is being held in the Reno County Juvenile Detention Center on charges of aggravated battery and unlawful possession of tobacco. The Associated Press doesn't generally name juvenile suspects.
Authorities received a report that four 14- and 15-year-old students were branded in the school's locker room last week when some freshmen moved to the varsity squad. The alleged victims were left with random designs on their stomachs.
