5 Volunteer Firefighters Arrested After Sexually Penetrating Trainee With Sausage During Hazing Incident

Six individuals, including five volunteer firefighters, are facing criminal charges in Ellis County, Texas, after a firefighter trainee reported last week that he’d been sexually penetrated with a sausage during a “hazing” incident.

Texas Department of Public Safety Sgt. Lonny Haschel said 26-year-old Keith Wisakowsky, 30-year-old Casey Stafford, 19-year-old Preston Peyrot, 28-year-old Alec Miller and 19-year-old Blake Tucker were arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault after they forcibly inserted a “chorizo sausage” into a new recruit’s anus, according to police. A sixth person was arrested for videotaping the hazing incident, which occurred in January at a volunteer fire station in Waxahachie, about 30 miles south of Dallas.

Police say the firefighters initially planned to use a broomstick to penetrate the victim, but instead decided on the Spanish pork sausage.

The Dallas Observer reports on the graphic details of the hazing incident:

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 trainee told the Rangers he was then released and he crawled into the nearby restroom with “smashed up sausage still between his butt cheeks.” He removed the sausage, threw up and took a shower to clean up. While he was showering, he says, someone took his clothes from the restroom. He came out of the restroom in a towel to look for his clothes. When he did, he says, Tucker took his towel. The man covered his genitals with his hands and ran to his truck to get some shorts, he says.
