A shocking incident occurred in a Fort Myers, Florida, bathroom after school hours Tuesday.
A 15-year-old girl is believed to have had sex with multiple male students at South Fort Myers High School.
News-Press.com reported that the school principal, Melissa Layner, reported the incident the next morning to Jarrod Cantrell, the school police deputy who works with the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
According to a police report, 25 male students were seen on hallway surveillance video entering and exiting the bathroom.
"A bunch of football players went into a room with a girl and had sex with her, and a bunch of the football players were suspended," student Alex Bailey told WBBH about what she heard. "So we might not have a football team this year."
Layner spoke with the girl, who "confirmed that she had sex with a number of willing males," according to the police report.
Detectives took sworn statements from some of the male students involved and a student's cellphone, with parents' permission.
Layner sent a message to parents Friday saying that discipline was "dealt quickly."
A police spokesperson for Lee County told People charges were unlikely.
