RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA (CBSLA.com) - Three varsity soccer players were reportedly expelled from Santa Margarita Catholic High School for hazing at least four younger players during a team trip to Hawaii.
The hazing allegedly involved boys urinating on each other and striking players with a bag of feces.
"There was a hazing, like freshman initiation. It was really bad," said student Dan Helms.
The victims' parents contacted school administrators when they learned of the alleged incidents, which are now being investigated by the Orange County Sheriff's Department.
Parents said they were disturbed by the behavior of the suspects, one of whom was a scholar athlete who was competing to be the valedictorian of his class.
"I feel very troubled by it. But I'm glad that the school is taking action to make sure that it doesn't happen. I don't know if the school was aware that it was happening; I don't think they did," said Alma Helms.
In a statement, a spokesperson from the Diocese of Orange said, "The incident did not involve anything related to public safety. It is being dealt with according to school policies and procedures."
