BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana State University has suspended a fraternity for possible violations of university policies before and after the death of a student in an alleged hazing incident at a different fraternity's house.
In a letter dated Tuesday, a university official says the Alpha Gamma Rho chapter at LSU may have engaged in unspecified "activities" on Aug. 21 that violated university policies. The official said the fraternity also may have broken a rule last Sunday by holding a "new member activity" without an adviser present.
Four LSU fraternities have been suspended or closed since the Sept. 14 death of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Roswell, Georgia, who was trying to join the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. Ten people were arrested last month on misdemeanor hazing charges in Gruver's death.
