CHARLOTTE, MECKLENBURG - A fraternity at the University of North Carolina Charlotte has been suspended as college officials and law enforcement investigate a pledge's hospitalization.
Authorities say an 18-year-old pledge of Pi Kappa Alpha was taken to a hospital Sept. 7 after failing to wake up during the fraternity's campout in Uwharrie National Forest. The student's blood alcohol level was 0.42, or more than five times the legal limit.
The student has recovered and is back in school.
College officials said in a statement that the fraternity is on interim suspension while the college investigates possible conduct violations. That means the fraternity can't hold any activities. The Montgomery County Sheriff's office is separately investigating potential criminal charges.
