TRUMBULL, Conn. (AP) -- High school wrestling is often about pain and endurance. The grueling practices, the struggle to meet a target body weight and the exhausting regimen of stair-climbing and weightlifting weed out the weak and the undisciplined.
But a group of Trumbull High School wrestlers are accused of taking things much too far.
A 15-year-old Trumbull wrestler was allegedly hogtied, pushed into a wall, stuffed inside a locker and held down while teammates forced the handle of a plastic knife into his rectum.
Eight members of the 15-member team have been arrested.
