COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Kappa Sigma fraternity has withdrawn the charter of its chapter at University of South Carolina in Columbia.

The State newspaper reported (https://bit.ly/12M68AW ) the move comes after an investigation found evidence of hazing, alcohol abuse and controlled-substance violations by 81 members.

The newspaper reported the fraternity is also reviewing spending by the USC chapter.

Police said prescription drugs were being distributed from a house where some Kappa Sigma members lived. The house was raided by police Oct. 20. Officials say some of the hazing violations occurred at the house.

An email obtained by the newspaper said the USC chapter can resume activities in 2019.

Kappa Sigma finished three years of probation in August that stemmed from incidents in 2011 involving alcohol use during pledge recruitment. One event also included strippers.
