Licking County Prosecutor Kenneth Oswalt says charges have been filed in an alleged hazing incident.  The Prosecutor says an 18-year-old is facing one count of Abduction and a 17-year-old is facing one count each of Complicity To Assault and Unlawful Restraint. Heath Police say at the time of the alleged crimes, which is between June and December of 2013, the two suspects were Heath High School basketball players.  Prosecutor Oswalt says the two suspects conduct exceeded the bounds of simple teasing or horseplay by holding the victims down and touching them inappropriately.  Oswalt says the names of the suspect are not being released since their alleged crimes occurred while they were juveniles.
