ENID, Okla. (AP) – Prosecutors in two Oklahoma counties are considering charges over a possible hazing incident involving Cherokee High School students.

The prosecutors in Alfalfa and Noble counties are going over a report from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and say a decision on what if any charges will likely be made next week.

OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown says agents were asked by the Alfalfa County Sheriff’s Office in October to investigate hazing allegations.

Details of the alleged hazing haven’t been released.

OSBI Inspector Stan Florence says the incidents occurred in Alfalfa and possibly Noble counties and includes several potential victims and suspects.
