Four former McNicholas High School football players will not be charged for allegedly assaulting a teammate in the school locker room.

Hamilton County Prosecutors agreed to drop the charges Friday after the teens completed an anti-bullying program.

The case stems from an alleged Oct. 9 incident in which, according to police records, a 14-year-old student was struck in the groin with cleated shoes by another student. A third student then pulled down his own shorts and stuck his buttocks in the victim's face.

After an investigation, school officials removed the students from the football and suspended them for five days.
