Police in Ohio are investigating an alleged case of bullying involving a teenager with autism and the Ice Bucket Challenge.

The mother of the teen says a group of young people dumped feces, urine, spit and cigarette butts on his head and videotaped the whole thing, according to Fox 8 in Cleveland.

In the video, the boy with autism is seen standing in the driveway of a home wearing only his underwear. A bucket of fluid, allegedly containing a mix of bodily fluids, is poured from the roof of the garage and on to the teen.

The mother says the video was discovered on her 15-year-old son’s cell phone. She, along with her husband and family wanted the video to be made public.

Police are investigating and tell Fox 8 criminal charges could be filed. They say it’s not a prank but a crime.

“The bucket challenge is supposed to be raising awareness for this disease and now they’ve turned it into a sick joke,” said the victim’s mom. “I just can’t understand why kids would do something this cruel.”

The boy’s mom and dad wanted the video released to make other parents aware of bullying so they’ll have a conversation with their kids on how to treat people.
