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.
