TROY announces punishment for fraternity at center of raided party

TROY, AL (WSFA) -

Troy University says it has laid out the punishment for a fraternity that hosted a party the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board ultimately raided. Some 55 people were arrested on charges of underage drinking at the June 22 party.

The fraternity, Kappa Alpha Psi, was immediately suspended. The party was approved by the university, but was raided after someone called authorities to say they'd seen underage drinking at the event held at The Pines restaurant.

For the fraternity's involvement in this incident, the following sanctions were placed on the organization: 

1. A formal letter of apology addressed to Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor of Troy University for the inappropriate actions by the fraternity at The Pines and for the language in the social media. This letter should be signed by all members of the fraternity that were present at the event. 

2. All social events for the fall semester must be alcohol-free. No sale of alcohol or BYOB at any function during the fall semester. 

3. The fraternity must invite and sponsor representatives from the ABC Board to conduct a workshop with the leadership of all social organizations on the appropriate use of alcohol at a function and the liabilities of having alcohol at a function. This must be completed by September 15,201I.

4. The fraternity must co-sponsor an event with MADD on campus open to all students on the dangers of under-age drinking. This must be completed by October 15,2011. 

5. The fraternity would be placed on Disciplinary Probation for a period of one year. Any other infractions during this period would subject the fraternity to an indefinite suspension of recognition.
