Kappa Alpha Psi named in reported hazing case

Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity was named Friday morning as the second fraternity recently involved in hazing at UF.

Interim Vice President for Student Affairs Dave Kratzer named the fraternity, which was investigated by University Police, at an anti-hazing task force meeting.

He said the fraternity was linked to hazing by someone being interviewed about the Alpha Phi Alpha hazing incident. According to UPD’s crime log, the incidents under investigation took place from April 23, 2010, to Jan. 31, 2011.

UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said UPD sent the sworn allegation to the state attorney’s office Thursday. State Attorney Bill Cervone is expected to release information in this week.

After the fraternity was named, Kratzer said, the university confirmed that the fraternity was being investigated in connection with hazing. The national office ordered the UF chapter to disband, Kratzer said.

Alpha Phi Alpha and Kappa Alpha Psi are both members of UF’s National Pan-Hellenic Council.

“We’re not trying to target any section of our Student Body, but when things come to us, we will always follow our procedures,” Kratzer said.
