Florida police have arrested a sixteen-year-old high school football player for allegedly videotaping a 15-year-old female having sex with multiple boys in a school lavatory.

Authorities said the young girl engaged in sexual acts with numerous “willing males” on May 17th. Lee County Sherrif’s Office suggests that as many as 25 additional boys, also students at South Fort Myers High School, watched the acts unfold.

School representatives have confirmed that five suspensions have already been enforced, and disciplinary action will be implemented for 11 others.

Police have charged Scott, who is believed to have filmed the group sex act, with child cruelty, allowing a minor to engage in sexual activity, cruelty, and possession of obscene footage of the event.

Reports suggest that this is the first criminal arrest stemming from the May 17th events.

Lee Country Sherrif Mike Scott commented on the matter, saying, “While it is regrettable that this incident occurred in the first place, we are always committed to holding everyone responsible for their actions.”

William Scott is a junior running back who rushed for almost 1,500 yards back in 2015 and was preparing for an upcoming spring game that was set to take place on May 20th.

Authorities have revealed that the young girl involved in the incident and her family decided against pressing charges. A family representative told WINK-TV that the girl had suffered emotional trauma and was a sex trafficking victim after running away from her home.

Megan Estrem, who previously worked with the family as the founder of a sex slavery victims’ advocacy group, also known as “Be The Light,” said in a statement that “She’s not equipped with the coping skills to make a stable, rational decision in that situation.”

Investigations have been initiated by Lee County’s school district, the Sherriff’s Office, and the Flordia Department of Children.

District spokeswoman Jennifer DeShazo said in a statement to The News-Press of Fort Myers that “Today’s events are not a reflection of the football team in any way and should not be portrayed as such.”
