NEWPORT, R.I. – Officials have launched an investigation into allegations of hazing of football players at Salve Regina University in Rhode Island. Salve Regina spokeswoman Kristine Hendrickson said Friday university officials received an email from a parent detailing inappropriate conduct by upperclassmen on the team. Hendrickson tells The Boston Globe some of the inappropriate behavior alleged was "sexual in nature." Hendrickson says an assistant coach was accused of inappropriate conduct. Football coach Kevin Gilmartin tells the Globe he's "shocked and flabbergasted."
Fox News has suspended Eric Bolling, the host of the "Fox News Specialists" and "Cashin' In," following allegations of inappropriate behavior. A Fox News spokesperson said Saturday that Bolling had been "suspended pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway." A series of rotating substitute hosts will take Bolling's place on "The Fox News Specialists," which airs weekdays at 5 p.m., and on "Cashin' In," which airs Saturdays at 11:30 a.m., during his suspension. Late Friday, the Huffington Post reported allegations that Bolling had sent unsolicited pictures of male genitalia to at least two colleagues at Fox Business Network and one colleague at Fox News. Bolling has hosted the "Fox News Specialists" along with Katherine Timpf and Eboni K. Williams since it premiered May 1.
