July 30, 2008 at 6:21 PM

KATY, Texas, July 30 (UPI) -- Texas officials say they are investigating a case involving several cheerleaders accused of endangering the safety of underclassmen during hazing rituals.

At least a dozen varsity cheerleaders at Morton Ranch High School in Katy, Texas, are accused of hazing 14 junior varsity squad members last week, KTRK-TV, Houston, reported.

Some underclassmen said older cheerleaders bound their hands and forced them to wear blindfolds before throwing them into a pool.

"Once you duct tape someone's hands, blindfold them throw them in a pool, start flicking their body parts, that's way too far," a junior varsity cheerleader's sister said.

"The district is investigating an alleged off-campus incident possibly involving inappropriate behavior by certain students," a Katy Independent School District official told reporters.
