WESTON, WI (WSAU) -  Five juveniles are in trouble after a gang initiation was recorded on video and posted to social media.

Everest Metro Police Captain Clayton Schulz says a video shows the May 10th initiation process.  He says the juveniles had recorded the beating, and posted it for everyone to see, until one of the parents found out and ordered the video removed from the social media site.

Schulz says they are pursuing charges against all involved, as these assaults cannot be tolerated.  The female that recorded the video is also being charged with party to the crime and disorderly conduct. Schulz believes there may be another person involved that is over 18 and would face adult charges if tied to the incident. The young male that was being beaten was not seriously hurt, but will face disorderly conduct charges.
