Middle school students at Olentangy Hyatts Middle School in Powell, Ohio, are being accused of putting bodily fluids – including urine and semen – in crepes that were served to teachers during an in-class cooking contest, CBS-affiliated WBNS reported.
A spokesperson for the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office told INSIDER that the incident is still being investigated. The spokesperson said the sheriff’s office and the school administration first became aware of the situation after a video recording of the incident began to circulate.
The sheriff’s office said that five teachers are believed to have consumed the allegedly contaminated crepes during a “Global Gourmet” class.
At this time, eight students, most of whom are 14-years-old, are being questioned in connection to Thursday’s events.
Brad Koffel, a lawyer for one student, told Fox News that people should exercise “caution before reaching any conclusions.” He suggested that it “could have been a prank that may have been mocked up for the purposes of creating a video.”
The Olentangy School District didn’t immediately return INSIDER’s request for comment. A spokesperson for the district did tell WBNS in a statement that “anyone found in violation of school policies will be held accountable for their actions.”
“The safety and security of our students and staff is of utmost importance,” the statement said. “District leadership and local law enforcement are conducting a thorough investigation into this incident, and anyone found in violation of school policies will be held accountable for their actions. We are also focusing our efforts to support the teachers impacted by this incident.”
According to Fox News, the sheriff’s office had ordered lab tests to determine if the crepes were contaminated with bodily fluids, as suspected. At this time, it seems that the results of the tests have not been released.
“Our investigation began that same afternoon and continues,” the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson told INSIDER. “We are working with the prosecutor’s office to determine possible charges and next steps.”
