Rye High School Students Charged In Alleged Hazing Incident

RYE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Three Rye High School juniors have been charged in a hazing incident.

Police said several eighth graders were forced into a car and then driven to a wooded area on Friday. That’s where investigators said they were paddled with a large piece of lumber, causing bruising and other injuries.

In a statement Monday night, the Rye schools superintendent said: “Some have suggested that these alleged acts are part of an annual ‘tradition’ at Rye High School. Let me be clear: Just because a small handful of students choose to believe that this is the case, does not make it a fact.”

The suspects were charged with hazing, assault and unlawful imprisonment.
