RADFORD, Va. (AP) - Police in Virginia announced that they’ve arrested four Radford University fraternity members on hazing charges.

News outlets report that school officials previously said a student was injured in an incident involving the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity in April. University spokesman Joe Carpenter says the student was hospitalized for five days and has since been released.

Those arrested were 20-year-old Jesse Vaughn Leasure, 22-year-old Evan Ross Satterley, 20-year-old Andrew Morgan Piccione and 22-year-old Theodore Eugene Anna. All face one count of hazing. Leasure and Satterley have been charged with aiding and abetting underage possession of alcohol.

The chapter is suspended while the university, police and the national chapter of Pi Kappa Phi investigate. The university hasn’t released the name of the injured student or details as to what prompted the investigation.

It wasn’t immediately clear if the students have attorneys.
