UK Investigating After EKU Suspends Fraternity

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The University of Kentucky is investigating whether members of its Kappa Alpha Psi chapter took part in an alleged violent hazing incident at Eastern Kentucky University.
The Lexington Herald-Leader quoted UK spokesman Jay Blanton on
Thursday, saying the university in Lexington has asked EKU officials and the fraternity's national chapter to help it determine whether any UK students were involved.
EKU has suspended the fraternity for eight years after one of its student pledges, Brent Whiteside, was hospitalized in March.
Whiteside told police he was assaulted at numerous locations in
Richmond from late January until early March.
Two active members of the fraternity chapter and one alumnus face misdemeanor charges.
