Football players suspended for hazing, threaten player with broom
CLOVER, SC (AP) -
Clover school officials have suspended 13 varsity football players after getting allegations that three players suffered hazing.
One woman said her son was held down by older football players who threatened to sexually assault her son with a broom stick. The woman said she was told by sheriff's deputies that hazing during an initiation has been going on for several years on the Clover football team.
School superintendent Marc Sosne said the school system is investigating, as are sheriff's deputies.
The woman said her son is reluctant to return to school.
She said school officials told her the investigation started when a teacher overheard older players talking about what they had done.
Officers responded to the school Thursday after getting reports about assaults that occurred last month.
