PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The superintendent of Anderson School District One said two students are facing assault charges after a hazing incident.

Superintendent David Havird said the two Wren High School football players were suspended for five days and dismissed from the football team after the incident on Sep. 16.

Havird said after an investigation conducted by the Anderson County Sheriff's Office, the two students have been charged with third-degree assault.

One of the students was identified as 17-year-old Bradley Kade Clardy. According to arrest warrants, Clardy held down a 14-year-old male victim, removed his clothing and put him in a cheerleader uniform.

The incident was recorded on video during school hours in the fieldhouse room of the football stadium.

Video seized during the investigation reportedly showed two other students who "somewhat participated in the incident." The school administrative staff is currently investigating the new information but Havird said he does not believe charges will be filed against the other students.

The superintendent said he can only release limited details, but said a lot of misinformation was circulating on social media.

Below is Havird's statement on the incident:

The administration learned of an incident involving Wren High School football players that took place at school on Friday, September 16.  We fully investigated the matter and notified law enforcement.  We have fully cooperated with law enforcement in their investigation.

We wish to make clear that Anderson School District One does not and will not tolerate harassment, hazing or bullying of students of any kind.  As a result of our investigation, the student misconduct has been fully addressed consistent with District policy and procedure.

FOX Carolina reached out to officials at Anderson School District One after receiving multiple calls from parents claiming there were more than two kids responsible for the act.

The assistant superintendent, Jane Harrison, said the school district did receive some additional information on Friday that led the administration to take further action. Here is her full response:

After the Anderson County Sheriff's Department concluded their investigation, Anderson School District One received some additional information on Friday, September 30. The administration took further action regarding misconduct of additional Wren High football players as a result of the hazing. Student misconduct was addressed consistent with district policies and procedures.
