GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) — The Barton County attorney says he is charging a juvenile with battery and criminal restraint in connection to a school bus incident involving members of the Great Bend High School boys swim team.
County Attorney Douglas Matthews says in a news release Tuesday that the charges stem from a Feb. 6 incident in Barton County. The release did not disclose the juveniles’ ages, and Matthews did not immediately return a phone message.
The prosecutor in neighboring Ellsworth County said last week that a 17-year-old member of the swim team was convicted of misdemeanor battery on another team member in Ellsworth County and will be sentenced July 5. A 16-year-old was sentenced to a year of probation for misdemeanor battery.
The team was returning from a swim meet in Manhattan.
