EKU Fraternity Suspended

A fraternity is now on suspension after a hazing incident on Eastern Kentucky University's campus.

Kappa Alpha Psi was suspended from the EKU campus for eight years.

Last week, Richmond Police arrested 21-year old Thomas Barnes. Police say he and other members of the fraternity beat a pledge with a paddle and cane multiple times back in March.

23-year old Brent Whiteside spent several days in the hospital recovering from injuries he received. Police are still looking for several other members of the chapter also accused of beating Whiteside.

The Kappa Alpha Psi national office has not yet released the findings of its investigation surrounding this event. However, the executive director of Kappa Alpha Psi, Richard Snow says "we are in full support of the university's position on this matter."
