Petersburg, Virginia – Police have charged 3 Virginia State University (VSU) Kappa Alpha Psi (ΚΑΨ ) fraternity members in an alleged hazing incident over the weekend on Pocahontas Island. University officials said 8 other students participated in the activity.
Police did not provide the offenses with which the 3 men were charged, but online court records show that one Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity member was charged with 10 counts of misdemeanor hazing and was to appear in court Monday morning. No charges were listed for the other two students.
University officials said the 3 students “are being charged with hazing-related criminal offenses,” but did not specify the charges.
The 8 other students who participated in the hazing activity have been referred to the VSU Office of Judicial Affairs for disciplinary action “as a result of student conduct violations.”
VSU officials said the university’s anti-hazing policy “clearly states that every form of hazing to include conspiracy to haze is prohibited.” The university has had several publicized hazing incidents in the past decade.
