UT fraternity suspended for hazing involving pouring hot sauce on genitals

A University of Tennessee fraternity has been suspended after students admitted to hazing.

Student life officials launched an investigation into the UT chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha after receiving a complaint from a concerned parent.

UT documents show the hazing involved paddling and pouring hot sauce on the pledge's genitals.

DOCUMENTS: Official UT notice of charges

UT officials say the fraternity wasn't supposed to be admitting any more members, but a dozen students were trying to gain entry. Ten students denied the hazing, but two admitted it after initially denying it.

UT officials revoked the fraternity's registration until August 2016, which means it's no longer considered a campus organization.

The fraternity didn't have a house on campus. Current membership included fewer than 10 people.
