COLUMBIA — MU has suspended the Kappa Alpha fraternity for a hazing report.
Columbia Police Department spokeswoman Latisha Stroer said police responded to a report of an assault Thursday at the fraternity house on 1301 University Avenue.
The 18-year-old subject had been "drinking to the point of being transported by ambulance to a local hospital," Stroer said in an email.
The investigation is ongoing.
Jesse Lyons, the Kappa Alpha Order's assistant executive director for advancement, said in an emailed statement: "Misuse of alcohol, and hazing, are each contrary to our values and are strictly and expressly prohibited by Kappa Alpha Order. We are in close cooperation with the University in this situation."
Suspended fraternities are not allowed to participate in campus activities, including Homecoming or social events, according to a news release from the MU News Bureau.
Individual members, however, are not prohibited from attending classes.
