VINTON, La. (AP) — Four horse racing jockeys have been arrested following a hazing incident in a locker room at Delta Downs racetrack.

Louisiana State Police Troop D spokesman James Anderson says 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 troopers began investigating in June. Arrest warrants were issued this week.

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, in a statement Friday, said additional arrests are possible.
