Wheaton College football player from Lookout Mountain charged in hazing incident

LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN (WDEF) — A football player from Lookout Mountain is one of five Wheaton College players facing criminal charges stemming from a hazing incident, according to CBS.

21-year-old Benjamin Pettway turned himself on Thursday.

He along with James Cooksey, Samuel Tebos, Kyler Kregel and Noah Spielman are all charged with aggravated battery, unlawful restraint and mob action, CBS News reports.

In 2016 a victim told police he was seriously injured when he was attacked by five members of the football team and left in a field with his limbs secured with duct tape.

All of the players have since been released on bond and are scheduled to appear in court in October.
