Wheaton College football players charged in hazing incident suspended from team – Chicago Tribune

Five Wheaton College football players charged this week in connection with a 2016 hazing incident have been suspended from practice and games, the college said Tuesday.

“The players have been deemed inactive for practice or competition by the College’s administration and coaching staff,” college spokeswoman LaTonya Taylor said in an email.

Players James Cooksey, Kyler Kregel, Noah Spielman, Benjamin Pettway and Samuel TeBos were charged Monday with aggravated battery, mob action and unlawful restraint after being accused of a hazing incident in which authorities said a freshman teammate was restrained with duct tape, beaten and left half naked with two torn shoulders on a baseball field.

The freshman teammate’s lawyer told the Tribune that the evangelical Christian school needs to be transparent about how it’s handling the situation.
