16-year-old arrested in Florida school bathroom sex incident

A Florida sheriff's office has arrested a 16-year-old high school football player in connection with a 15-year-old girl having sex with multiple boys in a public school bathroom.

Lee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tony Schall said in a news release Friday that the 16-year-old was charged with cruelty toward a child, allowing a child to engage in a sexual act and possession of obscene material.

According to a police report, the girl confirmed that she had sex with a number of "willing males" in the bathroom at South Fort Myers High on May 17. The report said a school-based sheriff's detective watched a security video and saw 25 teen boys walk into the restroom. The girl and her parents were unwilling to press charges.

The Associated Press is not naming the arrested teen because he is a minor.
