FORT THOMAS, KY (FOX19) - At least five Highlands High School student-athletes are under investigation for harassment, sources told FOX19 NOW Thursday.

A parent of one of the kids involved told FOX19 NOW that five baseball players are accused of urinating in a bottle last week while at a baseball tournament in Myrtle Beach, warming it in the microwave and dousing another player with it.

The parent told FOX19 NOW's Tricia Macke that the coach didn't see the incident but boys reportedly took video and pictures on cell phones.

"So there are recordings of a boy on Highlands baseball team being doused with urine?," Macke said.

"Well they were told if they'd taken any that they were to delete it," the parent said, 

"Who told them that?," Macke said 

"The coach, " the parent said.

The parent says the boys were suspended from school and the team for at least three days.

FOX19 NOW contacted the school's superintendent, principal and school board members, but they have refused to comment or discuss actions against the boys or the coach.

Sources say the victim has quit the team.

This story is developing and FOX19 NOW will update it when more information is released.
