Bronx Science Athletes Arrested, Coaches Suspended In Growing Hazing Scandal

• Business Insider

So far, three student athletes have been arrested and charged with misdemeanor for forcible touching and assault as well as second-degree hazing and harassment, according to The New York Times.

Witnesses allege that older runners were intimidating younger students on the team, and that the abuse would quickly escalate to inappropriate touching and threats of rape.

But perhaps the most disturbing detail to come to light is that Marion Dietrich, the school's athletic director, not only knew about the incidents but that they had been going on for years, according to an email sent out by Dietrich and published today by the Daily News.
