Eerily reminiscent of Dazed and Confused, three rising seniors at Rye High School in Westchester, N.Y. were arrested for taking their “Freshman Friday” acts too far. The upperclassmen, ages 16 and 17, reportedly kidnapped 15 incoming freshmen, drove them to Marshlands Conservancy and whacked them with a paddle.

Authorities found out through one of the kid’s parents, because a few students were hospitalized for being beaten so badly that their buttocks and legs were “raw.” The rising seniors were charged with hazing, assault, and unlawful imprisonment.

We hope none of these kids repeat their senior year just so they can haze and avoid being hazed in college.
