Multiple Ohio middle schoolers are under investigation after they allegedly served food tainted with bodily fluids to teachers during an international cooking class last week.
Eight students at Olentangy Hyatts Middle School, all between 14 and 15 years old, are being questioned by authorities in relation to the alleged incident, according to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigators say the teens served crepes that were tainted with semen and urine to five teachers who were judging a cooking competition as part of a class called "Global Gourmet," WBNS reports.
After a video purportedly showing a portion of the disgusting act began circulating the school Thursday, school administrators contacted authorities.
Delaware County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Tracy Whited told the Washington Post that undisclosed "evidence" has been sent to a lab for forensic analysis. The results will help determine if the students may face any charges, including felony assault or "misdemeanor charges, like complicity."
Brad Koffel, an attorney representing one of the students, told WBNS that no one should jump to "any conclusions" as he believes the footage "easily could have been a prank that may have been mocked up for the purposes of creating a video."
None of the students' identities have been released, and the investigation remains ongoing.
