ELLIS COUNTY, Texas — Six individuals, including five volunteer firefighters are facing criminal charges in Ellis County, Texas, after a trainee reported he had been sexually penetrated with a sausage during a “hazing” incident.
The Dallas Observer reports that Texas Rangers were called in by the county to investigate the January incident after the trainee came forward on March 31.
Authorities arrested Keith Wisakowsky, 26; Casey Stafford, 30; Alec Miller, 28; Blake Tucker, 19; and Preston Peyrot on sexual assault charges. Texas Rangers allege Brittany Leanne Parten, 23, illegally filmed the assault on her phone. The video features yelling and laughing during the incident, the Rangers say.
According to the Rangers, who were called in by Ellis County to investigate after the trainee came forward on March 31, the men committing the assault initially planned on using a broomstick before deciding a link of chorizo in the fridge was a better choice.
Wisakowsky retrieved the sausage, and the trainee was bent over the couch while Tucker and Stafford held him down and the sausage was inserted into his anus, the Rangers say. Then Wisakowsky cut the sausage out of the package and attempted to reinsert it, but the sausage broke up.
The victim said that after he was released, he crawled to a nearby restroom with “smashed up sausage still between his butt cheeks,” where he vomited and then showered.
While showering, he says, his clothes were taken and he had to run naked to his truck outside to retrieve some shorts.
