BROOKLYN PARK, Minn. (AP) — Officials at Champlin Park High School are cracking down on homecoming hazing.
The north metro school is considering disciplining nine to 10 students who took part in hazing incidents in the community Tuesday evening.
Those ranged from tying students to trees with plastic wrap to spraying students with condiments. The school says some students dressed in black were running in the streets, and at least two students had a minor auto collision with each other.
Principal Michael George says what began years ago as toilet-papering some students' yards during homecoming week has evolved into more serious behavior, and it needs to be stopped before someone is hurt.
Champlin Park says the hazing did not happen at school and was not connected to any student athletic or activity group.
