Kansas Wesleyan University recently filed a police report, alleging that several people drank contaminated water that was spiked with paint thinner during Saturday’s doubleheader against Bethany College.

A photo of the team's Gatorade cooler surfaced on social media with the caption: "Putting PAINT THINNER in our water coolers to get our baseball players sick and still getting toasted by 31 runs is WILD."

The Lindsborg Police Department conducted over 60 interviews to figure out what exactly happened this past weekend.

According to TMZ Sports, law enforcement officials have determined no one affiliated with the Bethany College and Kansas Wesleyan University baseball teams was responsible for this incident.

However, the police have identified two male juveniles who may have been involved in this incident.

Seven people allegedly drank this contaminated water. Six of the reported victims were students.

This investigation is still ongoing.

Bethany College and Kansas Wesleyan University have announced that they're cooperating with local law enforcement's investigation.
