This image from a YouTube video shows Naked Vikings rallying the crowd at a football game. The boys pictured here are not connected to the recent hazing allegations. The boy who was hazed did not want to be interviewed, but his mother told police the violent beatings happened near Forsgren Park in Bothell Monday night. Jeannie Collier lives right behind the park and when police showed up, they found students bent over a log, some with open, bleeding wounds and others suffering from hypothermia. The Naked Vikings are known for such antics as dressing up in costume and wearing face paint to hype crowds at football games. Over the last few years, the district has investigated claims of hazing that involved the Naked Vikings but never found any evidence of wrongdoing until this week.
Seven of the boys were identified as victims and were bent over a log with open wounds from being struck with switches. Police have identified five potential suspects connected with the Naked Vikes. But now almost everyone, including the parents of the victims, are not talking about the incident.
