DA wants to hear from football hazing witnesses
DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A suburban Philadelphia district attorney says investigators want to hear from potential victims or witnesses to alleged hazing that abruptly ended the football season at Central Bucks High School West.
Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler spoke at a closed-door meeting Monday with the district’s superintendent and about 75 to 100 player parents.
Parents said the meeting in the school’s auditorium previewed information district officials planned to disclose publicly at a school board meeting Tuesday.
Superintendent David Weitzel says he learned Oct. 14 about pre-season rituals for rookies that included grabbing another player’s genitals while fully clothed and placing towels over players’ heads and leading them into the shower.
School board President Paul Faulkner issued a statement Monday supporting the decision to cancel the season’s final two games.
