Both Lester and Fehrenbacher have been released on their own recognizance, according to officials.

Lester and Fehrenbacher are both facing third degree assault and hazing charges. Fehrenbacher is also being charged with third degree battery.

A Bauxite School District spokesperson told KATV they’re no longer students and have no further comment.

In June, the Arkansas State Police provided letter that the students were cleared, but prosecutors stressed the case was still being investigated.
