University of Central Florida Fraternity Suspended After Forcing Pledges to Exercise in Buckets of Ice Water



A University of Central Florida fraternity is under fire after purportedly torturing pledges in a hazing incident, the Daily Mail reports.

Alpha Tau Omega fraternity is accused of beating pledges, forcing them to drink alcohol and exercise in buckets of cold water, according to Daily Mail.

A pledge, who chose to remain anonymous, submitted a complaint to university, which revealed, “All of the pledge brothers were locked into a room with a certain amount of alcohol that they were told to consume together before they were revealed their big brother,” according to Local 6.

The pledge said he was beaten while blind folded and forced to stand in a bucket of ice water in a wall sit. They faced this extreme form of torture while reciting their fraternity’s creed.

“We do not condone this type of behavior,” UCF spokesman Chad Binette told Local 6. “However, we are pleased that this student came forward as a result of one of our many anti-hazing initiatives.”
