WARRICK COUNTY, IN (WFIE) - A two page report was released Wednesday by the Warrick County Sheriff's Office regarding the suspension of Castle High School's boys' Soccer team.

The report points to a "possible hazing incident"as to why school officials suspended the team.

Sheriff Marvin Heilman said a student was inappropriately touched while the team was on a bus returning from the game at Heritage Hills last Thursday.

After hearing about the incident, parents went to Castle High Principal Philip Delong and told him about the incident. That's when Heilman said Delong alerted them and they began an investigation.

Delong initially said they felt they handled it appropriately by suspending the team and are moving forward.

Tune in to 14 News at 6:00 when Nathan Ryder reveals why the Heilman doesn't believe any charges will be filed in this case.

Castle High School ended its soccer season with more than a loss in the sectionals over the weekend; the entire varsity squad was suspended and the junior varsity had to play the game.

Castle High Principal Philip DeLong said the school conducted an investigation into an incident and found there was a violation of school and athletic rules.

DeLong wouldn't specify what the incident was or what policy was violated.

So far, the only official action taken has been the suspension of the varsity soccer players and the season is now over.

Delong also said the situation is over and done with and they're moving forward.  

A spokesman at the Warrick County Sheriff's office says there is no investigation into the incident because no complaint has been filed.
