ST. PAUL — The Howard County Sheriff’s Department is investigating a report that cat food, chocolate, hot sauce, syrup and vinegar were thrown at St. Paul High School freshmen as part of a hazing ritual by high school upperclassmen.

The Sheriff’s Department issued a press release on Monday saying it received a report last Friday of the alleged hazing.

It said St. Paul freshmen apparently were taken, either willingly or unwillingly, to a location under the Loup River Bridge south of St. Paul, where the items were supposedly tossed or thrown upon the first-year high school students.

The press release said the Sheriff’s Department was meeting with school officials Monday to deal with the situation through the school. It said no charges had been filed, and the incident remained under investigation. Full story.
