Five teens from Ohio, USA, were recently arrested for allegedly dumping human waste on an autistic boy on September 3 in an Ice Bucket Challenge, reports FOXCT.

Three of the juveniles were charged with two counts of delinquency, assault and disorderly conduct, while the other two juveniles were each charged with a single count of disorderly conduct. 

The high school boys poured a bucket of waste, including human feces and tobacco spit on the boy with autism, and they also captured the event on the latter's phone. 

The report states that the prosecutor's office found that the teens were friends with the boy and they did things together regularly. “However, this incident is clearly different. It crossed a moral and legal line, and even the five alleged perpetrators understand that and have expressed regret”, First Assistant County Prosecutor Duane Deskins told FOXCT.
