University of Missouri investigates hazing report

Parents of a student say their 18-year-old son was hospitalized after a vodka chugging game.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri is investigating a report of hazing involving excessive alcohol at a fraternity that had been disciplined earlier this semester for another hazing incident involving alcohol.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the Kappa Alpha fraternity was on disciplinary probation for a "previous alcohol incident" when the university placed the fraternity on temporary suspension Monday while it investigates allegations of hazing another pledge with alcohol.

The university says it can't provide details.

But parents of a student say their 18-year-old son was hospitalized last week after taking part in a vodka chugging game at the fraternity. They say their son's blood alcohol content at the hospital was more than five times the legal limit for driving.

The national fraternity says it's working to complete a full investigation.
