Update on AU student beaten at fraternity party

AUBURN, Ala. (WSFA/WTVM) - There's an update on the story of an 18-year-old Auburn University student who was injured during an assault in the parking lot of a fraternity house last Saturday night.

Auburn University officials tell our news partner, WTVM, they are waiting on a written account of the incident before deciding on any disciplinary action.

Taylor Jones, 18, was taken to a Columbus, Georgia hospital in critical condition after a fight in the parking lot of the Sigma Phi Epsilon house.

Police Capt. Tom Stofer said no weapons where used besides fists. Stofer said the incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.

The fraternity's president admits the fraternity was hosting the party that night, but would not comment further.

"Our process is we'll get the report, we'll review it and then after that, once we've evaluated it, then we'll decide if it needs to move forward at another level," said Auburn's Director of Greek Life.

Any action would probably be taken at some point next week.

Jones' father told WTVM that the family is leaving the investigation to the police and focusing on his son's recovery.

Jones was most recently in the news as a vocal supporter of head football coach Tommy Tuberville in December. He lead a protest after the university announced Tuberville's resignation.
