MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) - A University of Idaho fraternity has been suspended and is under investigation due to undisclosed allegations.

University officials said Tuesday that the chapter of Delta Sigma Phi is accused of engaging in behavior that is inconsistent with the university’s policies, The Lewiston Tribune reported (https://bit.ly/2dLclp6 ).

UI Dean of Students Blaine Eckles said he doesn’t know if the fraternity’s national organization had suspended the chapter and that he couldn’t provide more details about the investigation.

“In order to preserve the sanctity of the investigation and in order to conduct a thorough one, we don’t get into the specifics,” he said.

Fraternity officials did not respond to requests for comment.

Moscow Police Capt. Tyson Berrett said he is not involved in the university’s investigation. The police department’s only interaction with the fraternity this year has been an alcohol and safety talk given by officers as part of an annual risk management program, he said.

“We don’t have any current investigations going with Delta Sig,” Berrett said. “We’re still waiting on information from them (the university) as well.”

The Moscow Police Department and UI officials spent several months investigating allegations of hazing at another fraternity, Phi Gamma Delta, in 2015.
