Some Little Elm varsity football players may be charged with hazing after allegedly sticking their bare buttocks in the faces of three younger teens.
Police in Little Elm said three freshmen walked into the varsity locker room two weeks ago and were confronted by two 15-year-old varsity players who said they weren't allowed in the room.
When the freshmen did not immediately leave, the older players restrained them and placed their buttocks in the boys' faces.
The school district notified police of the incident late last week. After contacting the parents of the freshmen victims, two did not want to press charges while a third student's parents want police to investigate further and pursue hazing charges.
Hazing, a Class B misdemeanor in Texas, could bring a maximum of six months in jail and a $2,000 fine.
