Some Montgomery County middle school basketball players are facing criminal charges for hazing.

School authorities say several boys are facing assault charges for allegedly roughing up fellow students.

Police launched their investigation into possible hazing at McNabb Middle School last Wednesday after a concerned parent claimed her child fell victim to bullies who tried to sexually assault her son with a soda bottle.

School officials immediately suspended the basketball players for three games--but the young men will not be kicked off the team.
