DOS PALOS, Merced County (CBS / AP) — The police chief of a small, Central California farming town says he is “fearful” that a high school football hazing scandal will grow beyond the alleged incident that led to arrest of three varsity players.
Dos Palos police chief Barry Mann said Thursday he called on the local district attorney to help his department of seven officers investigate the widening scandal at the city’s only high school the day before its football team’s biggest rivalry game of the season.
Mann declined to discuss the details of the incident last week that involved three top players allegedly hazing a younger student about 60 miles northwest of Fresno. He said two 17-year-olds and a 16-year-old were arrested. They weren’t identified because of their ages.
