MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) — Prosecutors in Muncie say they’ve charged three juveniles in connection with hazing at Delta High School.

Delaware County Prosecutor Jeffrey Arnold calls the case an “attempt at hazing that was way out of control” and involved more than ten victims. The (Muncie) Star-Press reports that the three students involved were expelled. They are accused of abusing fellow students at a football camp at DePauw University in June in Putnam County.

The names of those charged weren’t released because they are being prosecuted as juveniles. Two are age 17 and one is age 16. They all face charges of battery and confinement.

The suspects won’t be arrested. They are to appear at initial hearings in Delaware County juvenile court.
