Truman Hazing? Nobody’s talking

No charges have been filed yet, but 19 members of the Truman State University baseball team were implicated in an alleged hazing.

Kirksville Police got the report on Monday from Truman State’s athletic director. Police reports indicate that it happened at a house on North Elson Street. Truman’s AD Jerry Wollmering called police. Police have not given any details of the incident, and say that the Missouri Attorney General’s office will handle any charges that are filed. Truman’s athletic department issued this yesterday: “Due to the ongoing investigation, the University has no comment at this time concerning the alleged hazing incident involving members of the baseball team. The University is cooperating fully with the Kirksville Police Department’s investigation and is conducting its own investigation involving possible student conduct code violations. Truman takes these charges very seriously and will take action at the appropriate time.”
