The Grundy County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) is investigating a hazing incident that happened at the Grundy County School football field house Wednesday morning.

GCSO investigators interviewed students, teachers, and parents Wednesday afternoon to learn more about what happened.

Grundy County Director of Schools Jessie Kinsey says that the students involved in the hazing will be punished according to the handbook.

Director Kinsey says that the incident has also been referred to the Department of Children's Services, law enforcement, and the DA's office for review.

Sheriff Clint Shrum said in a statement Wednesday evening that criminal charges could result from the incident.

Late Thursday, 12th Judicial District Attorney General Mike Taylor told NewsChannel 9 he anticipates charges will be filed against several juvenile suspects in court.
