No charges will be filed in wrestlers' controversial photo

PHILLIPSBURG, N.J. - Officials investigating a controversial photo involving some high school wrestlers in Warren Co., N.J., said no charges will be filed in the case.

The photo surfaced earlier this year, showing seven Phillipsburg wrestlers posing with a hanged dummy wearing an opposing team's T-shirt.

All of the students in the photo were suspended for three days and banned from a wrestling tournament.

The Warren County prosecutor's office and Phillipsburg police announced Thursday that no criminal charges will be filed.
