TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A University of Arizona fraternity is under investigation over allegations of underage drinking and causing physical harm to new members.

Associate Dean of Students Chrissy Lieberman told The Arizona Daily Star (https://goo.gl/5WTY6g) a recent initial investigation showed Sigma Alpha Epsilon hazed new members by making them clean the frat house and subjecting them to humiliation.

Lieberman says the fraternity also caused “physical harm to new members resulting in welts and bruising.”

Lieberman says the chapter also is accused of holding multiple unregistered events that provided alcohol to minors.

She says the fraternity’s national headquarters also is investigating.

UA’s online disciplinary records show the chapter has been in trouble repeatedly for drunkenness, hazing, student endangerment and other misconduct since 2009.
