VINTON, Louisiana (AP):

Four horse racing jockeys were arrested earlier this month following a hazing incident in a locker room at Delta Downs racetrack.

Louisiana State Police Troop D spokesman James Anderson said the jockeys are accused of throwing buckets of ice water on a juvenile boy, who was a licensed racing employee, spraying shaving cream on him, throwing hot sauce on his genitals, and posting a picture to the social media website, Facebook.

KPLC-TV reports that troopers began investigating in June. Arrest warrants were afterwards issued.

Facing charges of criminal conspiracy, aggravated battery, sexual battery and video voyeurism are 40-year-old Miguel Tejeda, of Stockdale, Texas; 42-year-old Juan Garcia, of Manvel, Texas; 23-year-old Damian Martinez, of San Antonio, Texas; and 32-year-old Rolando Cabrera, of Brookshire, Texas.

Anderson said additional arrests were possible.
