UT Martin fraternity suspended during hazing investigation

Posted: Updated:

MARTIN (AP) - A fraternity at the University of Tennessee at Martin campus has been suspended while officials investigate a hazing allegation.

WPSD-TV reports the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity is on interim suspension by both the university and the national chapter.

UT Martin Director of University Relations Bud Grimes says the move stems from an incident last week when a fraternity pledge member ended up in the hospital after being hit by a car.

National Chief Executive Officer of Alpha Tau Omega Wynn Smiley said the incident is under investigation.

No student names were released.
