Students in a "Global Gourmet" class at Ohio's Olentangy Hyatts Middle School held a cooking competition last week, during which they served the teachers who were judging the contest crepes. Those crepes may have contained some decidedly less-than-gourmet ingredients: urine and semen, police say. A video purportedly made by two students who claimed to have put the bodily fluids in the crepes was making the rounds at the school; administrators eventually learned of it and contacted police, the Columbus Dispatch reports. Several students at the Powell school are now under investigation, and an attorney for one of them urges people not to jump to conclusions, WBNS reports.

This "easily could have been a prank that may have been mocked up for the purposes of creating a video," he says. "We don't know if urine or semen was ever placed in anyone's food. I don't know how the school would know that." Police say lab tests are being conducted to verify any substances involved; per NBC4i, the testing is being done on uneaten food that remained after the competition. At least five teachers or staff members ate the crepes. If a crime was found to have been committed, students could face felonious assault charges. (More unimaginable grossness stories.)
