hazing

More than a week after a locker room assault was captured on camera in south Alabama, four high school football players have been charged and the school district faces a $12 million demand.

Area news outlets are citing a statement from Mobile police yesterday that says three of the four students suspended by Davidson High School have been taken into custody. Additional information was unavailable as all three are underage.

An April 27 video shows multiple students hitting and jumping on 14-year-old freshman Rodney Kim Jr., causing a broken arm.

The University of Alabama has ended all pledging activities by fraternities amid allegations of hazing at some fraternities. UA Vice President for Student Affairs Mark Nelson said pledging activities were ended as of 1 p.m. Thursday because of reports that have been received on a hazing hotline. Nelson said in a statement that UA has issued interim suspensions to one former member and two active members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity for engaging in hazing at an off-campus location.
