An arrest in Story County this week brings some details that may be triggering for some Iowa's News Now viewers.
A state wrestling champ is now facing a felony assault charge in connection with an alleged hazing incident earlier this year.
Investigators say he shoved a pencil up another teen's anus during the incident in January.
Now, 17-year-old Kade Blume is facing a felony charge of penetrative assault with an object.
Blume has won two state titles at Roland-Story.
The Story County News reports the sheriff's office got an anonymous tip back in April about the alleged assault against a 15-year-old victim.
Blume pled not guilty in court Wednesday, and is out on pretrial release.
He's due back in court November 28th.
