Hazing Probe Shuts Down Elk River Football
Elk River’s varsity football team has been suspended as police investigate allegations of hazing.
Capt. Bob Kluntz says the department was contacted by the district on Wednesday. He would not characterize the type of hazing, but says it could involve criminal assault.
Kluntz says any hazing victims should contact police. He expects the investigation to take at least until next week.
Football coach Mike Cross says he has no comment.
Elk River district spokesman Casey Mahon says the hazing appears to be more than an isolated incident.
