Ardmore police investigate 'grotesque and ghastly hazing initiation' at school

Ardmore police are investigating a high-school hazing incident, Joleen Chaney reports for News 9, and "the mother of one of the alleged victims said what happened is violent and life changing." Some Ardmore parents described it as "a grotesque and ghastly hazing initiation that was sexual in nature and horribly traumatic."
"It's been a nightmare you can't wake up from," said the mother of an alleged victim. The nightmare she said happened Wednesday on school property, and involved baseball players at the high school. ... Details of the assault are not being released, but one accusation claimed a broom handle was used to assault one of the victims. However, police would not confirm that.
"I want some kind of justice, because this should never have happened in the school system," the alleged victim's mother said. "Because we send our kids to school, and we're thinking they're safe, but they're not. Nobody protected my child, and he's going to have to live with it for the rest of his life."
