Athletic director, coaches suspended in Bronx Science hazing probe

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

The Department of Education has suspended the athletic director and two track coaches from their coaching jobs in connection with a hazing scandal at Bronx High School of Science, an official confirmed.

"They retain their teaching jobs but are suspended from coaching," spokeswoman Marge Feinberg wrote in an email. "One is a substitute teacher, one is a fulltime teacher and one is a retired teacher."

The New York Times identified them as Marion Dietrich, the athletic director overseeing track; Aisha Bruce, the head track coach; and Cesar Gracia, the assistant track coach.

The school and police are continuing their investigation of the allegations of hazing at the school. So far, police have arrested three students.

Those three track team members -- identified in an affidavit as Thomas Brady, 16, Boubacar Diallo, 16, and Pier Berkmans, 17 -- are accused of bullying a 15-year-old freshman teammate. Authorities charged them with forcible touching, assault, and hazing, Bronx District Attorney's Office said.

They pleaded not guilty at their arraignment and were released on their own recognizance, the AP reported. They are due back in court March 8.

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    Making New York City more energy efficient

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
