Charges filed vs. Penn State frat over unconscious student

November 01, 2017 - 3:19 PM

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - Police have filed alcohol-related charges against a suspended Penn State fraternity after a student suspected of drinking there was found unconscious and hospitalized.

The Centre Daily Times reports two misdemeanour counts of selling and furnishing liquor to a minor were filed against Delta Tau Delta on Monday.

State College police found the 18-year-old male student unconscious but breathing on a street on Sept. 28. He also had a cut on his leg from trying to jump a fence. Police say the student told officers he was drinking at the fraternity. The university suspended the fraternity in October.

The fraternity's national headquarters said in a statement that the chapter had appealed the suspension. It said the reported events "do not reflect the fraternity's best practices and expectations of our student members."
