Indiana University suspends Alpha Tau Omega fraternity amid hazing investigation

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University suspended a fraternity this week after a graphic video of an alleged hazing incident surfaced.

The school tweeted from its official account just after 11 p.m. Wednesday that the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity had been suspended immediately "pending investigation into hazing activities which perpetuate sexual misconduct."

On Wednesday, a video was posted to the Internet forum Reddit purporting to show an ATO pledge performing oral sex on women while other members looked on.

ATO has run into problems over hazing before.

In 2010, 100 out of 126 members of the house were kicked out following an investigation into hazing and alcohol violations.

Fraternity members at the time denied knowing anything about hazing, though ATO CEO Wynn Smiley said suspended members considered the fraternity "party central."

A call to the Alpha Tau Omega house Thursday morning was not immediately returned, and the school had not yet responded to an email request for comment.
