California teacher, 4 students arrested in hazing case
FONTANA, Calif. (AP) -- A Southern California high school teacher has been arrested on suspicion of directing students to assault another student in a classroom hazing incident.
Fontana police said Sunday that 27-year-old Emmanuel Delarosa, along with four other students, were arrested on Saturday.
Police alleged that Delarosa facilitated some students to carry out the hazing to curb behavioral problems in the classroom at AB Miller High School. Police declined to describe the nature of the hazing, citing the ongoing investigation. At least one student suffered minor injuries.
The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports that an 18-year-old student arrested in the case faces charges of assault, child cruelty and attempted sodomy.
Delarosa was booked for investigation of child endangerment.
