3rd Teen Charged in Glacier High School Hazing

By Beacon Staff

A third Glacier High School student accused of hazing teammates on a freshman football bus has been charged with misdemeanor assault.

KCFW-TV reported Friday the 15-year-old boy was charged this week after prosecutors took another look at his alleged involvement in the Sept. 12 incident. Parents and grandparents of students on the bus told police that several players were assaulted and molested as the team returned to Kalispell from a game in Missoula.

Two other students were charged with assault. One of the teens denied the allegations, while the other teen confessed and apologized to his victims in court Wednesday.

The two teens originally charged remain on a court-ordered curfew, and the third is scheduled to appear in court Dec. 2.
