Ohio Students Could Face Charges For Contaminating Teachers’ Food
Middle school students in Powell, Ohio are reportedly being investigated by local authorities for contaminating the food they served at the school. This comes after the middle schoolers posted a video of themselves claiming to put semen and urine into crepes they gave to the teachers.
According to reports from The Columbus Dispatch, at least two unnamed students from Hyatts Middle School are being investigated after possibly feeding crepes with bodily fluids to teachers during their home economics class while taking part in an end-of-the-year project.
At least five teachers were identified as victims in this situation. They reportedly ate the crepes before the video surfaced on campus alleging the inclusion of the inappropriate ingredients. “One student filmed some of it, and the video made its way around the school and fortunately to school administrators,” Delaware County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Whited told the Dispatch.
Whited said that a forensic analysis is being conducted and officials are awaiting lab results. Whited also added that if semen and urine are discovered to have been used in the crepes, those responsible could face delinquency charges, which includes assault with a bodily substance.
In a statement about the incident and its investigation, the school district said the following:
“Leadership and local law enforcement are conducting a thorough investigation into this incident, and anyone found in violation of school policies will be held accountable for their actions. We are also focusing our efforts to support the teachers impacted by this incident.”
