WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A University of Hartford student has been arrested after a freshman at the school alleged students were subjected to hazing at an unsanctioned, off-campus fraternity.

West Hartford police charged 21-year-old George Sinclair of New London with misdemeanor assault last week.

The freshman told police that pledges were hazed at the off-campus fraternity Phi Delta Theta. He alleges Sinclair hit him in the chest with a golf club. He also says there were other hazing incidents, including lit cigarettes being put out on pledges’ tongues.

University and national Phi Delta Theta officials say there hasn’t been an approved fraternity chapter at the school for several years because of sanctions.

Sinclair was released on bail. There’s no phone listing for him and it’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
