Eight suspects have been identified so far in the Garfield High School hazing incident that took place last Friday. About 100 students participated in the hazing event at the UW Arboretum. The Seattle Police Department and Garfield High School is combing through the evidence and will be interviewing the victims and suspects to determine the best course of action to take against the suspects.

Hazing is illegal in Washington state, so how do different districts handle hazing? Mike Donlin is the program supervisor at the School Safety Center in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. He explains how the state handles hazing.
