Cheerleader hazing
The Houston Chronicle1 reports that Katy Independent School District is investigating claims that varsity and junior varsity cheerleaders tat Morton Ranch High School are being subjected to hazing.

Spokesman Steve Stanford said administrators learned of allegations that the school’s varsity squad “kidnapped” junior varsity members from their homes, blindfolded them, bound their hands and mouths with duct tape and tossed them into a swimming pool last Friday morning.

Hazing is considered a Class B misdemeanor by the Texas Education Code.
