University Suspends Frat Over Taser Hazing

Washington and Lee University suspended its Phi Kappa Psi chapter for three years after a member shocked a pledge with a Taser, college officials said. The student-led Interfraternity Council voted to suspend the chapter for 18 months on Tuesday night after an anonymous tipster reported the incident, but university President Kenneth Ruscio upped the suspension to three years, NBC News reported. "This was a case of clear physical abuse, harmful enough as it was, but under the circumstances potentially even more dangerous," Ruscio said. "It was a specific act that occurred in a climate of intimidation that existed throughout the fraternity's new member education program."
