COOPER CITY, Fla. - The parent of a South Florida high school student complained to local authorities after she says her son was the victim of a hazing incident.
The parent said her son, a member of the Cooper City High School baseball team, was hazed by teammates during a road trip to a tournament in Altamonte Springs the week of March 21-25.
According to the Broward Sheriff's Office report, the student told his mother that five teammates came into his room and pulled his underwear down before he was able to fight them off.
The Leechburg Area school board will hire a new coach of the high school varsity boy’s basketball team tonight after hazing allegations surfaced earlier this year.
District officials said board members will meet at 7 p.m. for a special meeting.
