Texas Volunteer Firefighters Arrested for Hazing

Five volunteer firefighters are off the job in Ellis County. They and one other person face serious charges for what investigators said they did to a fellow firefighter, reports wfaa.com

The Texas Rangers investigated what’s described as a hazing incident that happened in January at the Ellis County Emergency Services District No. 6 Volunteer Fire Department in Waxahachie. An affidavit states the group sexually assaulted a fellow firefighter.

Rangers said the sixth person arrested in the case recorded the act on her cell phone.

In a community where firefighters are held in high regard, people here were caught off-guard by these allegations. Court records paint a picture of a party-like atmosphere at the station house while members of the department sexually assault a new recruit.
