Warren police seek charges against students allegedly involved in De La Salle hazing scandal
De La Salle forfeits high school football playoff game due to hazing allegations
WARREN, Mich. – Police have turned over their findings and are recommending charges against three students accused of being involved in hazing in the De La Salle High School football program, according to police Commissioner Bill Dwyer.
De La Salle forfeited its high school playoff game due to allegations of hazing in the team locker room.
Warren police said earlier this week they were in the midst of interviewing every member of the football team.
“I’ve assigned five investigators to the case -- one sergeant, four detectives,” Dwyer said at the time.
Police said they expected to conduct 40 to 80 interviews before the investigation concluded. Dwyer confirmed to Local 4 on Thursday that the investigation has been completed.
Warren police will present their findings to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office and recommend charges against three students, Dwyer said. The three students in question have been suspended since the start of the investigation, Dwyer said.
Local 4 reached out to De La Salle High School for comment, but school officials said they don’t comment publicly about disciplinary matters.
