An Ohio university has suspended a prominent African American fraternity following an alleged heinous hazing incident, Fox 8 reports.
Kent State University suspended Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity until May 2016 following an investigation into the organization’s practices.
“The fraternity has been suspended for three years following an investigation that began a few weeks ago,” university spokesman Eric Mansfield told Fox 8. “This particular fraternity had not been in compliance before and as you see from the suspension letter had been placed on social probation, at times, unable to hold social activities even as a fraternity.”
“That should have been a warning sign they their behavior was unacceptable,” he added.
The Kent State investigation sub-committee found evidence of physical and mental hazing, which included paddling and caning pledges.
The Crimson and Cream fraternity will be prohibited from engaging in on and off campus activities.
The fraternity has the option to appeal the sanctions and have 14 days to do so.
