Charges could be filed against at least two students at a middle school in Powell, Ohio who are accused of sharing video of themselves putting bodily fluids into food that was served to teachers, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

The incident took place last Thursday morning in Hyatts Middle School at a home economics class, the Dispatch reports. The students in the class prepared crepes for teachers.

“One student filmed some of it, and the video made its way around the school and fortunately to school administrators,” said Tracy Whited, Delaware County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman. “There are multiple students we’re are looking at as suspects. There are multiple victims, all staff.”

The video was found after the food had been eaten, and administrators immediately contacted a school resource officer. The video reportedly shows and/or describes both urine and semen being added to the crepes.

Whited told the Dispatch those responsible could face delinquency charges, including assault with a bodily substance.

School officials released this statement:

“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.”
