University of Virginia Zeta Psi fraternity banned after student hazing incident

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — The University of Virginia has revoked a fraternity's affiliation three months after a pledge was hospitalized.

The Daily Progress reports university Dean of Students Allen W. Groves notified the Zeta Psi fraternity of the two-year ban on Monday.

Court documents show fraternity members took the 19-year-old first-year student to a hospital in early March after he ate a meal of dog food, matzo balls, gefilte fish and soy sauce. He was hospitalized for four days.

Zeta Psi national chapter executive director David Hunter says the group supports the university's decision.

Albemarle County Commonwealth's Attorney Denise Lunsford says no charges will be filed against fraternity members due to the victim's reluctance to testify.
