Air Force Academy Punishes Gymnasts For Drinking

DENVER (AP) — The Air Force Academy says it has disciplined members of the men’s gymnastics team for underage drinking and unprofessional behavior.

The academy said Thursday that there were no allegations of sexual assault or illegal drug use. Officials declined to specify the nature of the unprofessional behavior.

The academy won’t identify anyone involved or say what discipline was taken, citing privacy laws. The school also didn’t say how many people were involved.

The academy also says it is examining allegations of inappropriate behavior by a basketball staff member. No other details were released.

The announcement came amid renewed scrutiny of past allegations of sexual misconduct and other infractions at the school.
