Sonora, CA — Add Matthew Anthony Rossi to the list of those who have been served a warrant, cited and released in the Columbia College hazing incident.

According to Lt. Dan Bressler of the Sheriff´s Department, Rossi, 21 year old Christopher Ingram and 22 year old Brian Cole constitute three of the four individuals who have been charged with one count of hazing and one count of unlawful use of force and violence who have now been cited and released on the misdemeanor charges. Aaron Means remains the only one, charged on the two counts, that has yet to be cited.

21 year old Timothy O´Neill, charged with a single count of hazing, turned himself into authorities. He was cited and released. Michael Sacheli and Cary Gregg have also been charged with a single count of hazing. They have yet to be cited.

All seven were involved with the hazing of 19 year old Andrew Grafius during a student-firefighter party in the Crystal Falls area in January. Grafius has since withdrawn from the Columbia College program.
