The Kappa Sigma fraternity at UCF has been placed on organizational interim suspension following an alleged downtown jumping of a brother in the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity, UCF records show.
The fraternity was charged on two counts of disruptive conduct and three counts of harmful behavior.
According to documents obtained by KnightNews.com, on the morning of Sept. 19 officers responded to a battery that occurred in the area of Church St. underneath I-4 around 2:30 a.m.
Two members of Lambda Chi Alpha boarded the wrong bus headed back to UCF when occupants on the bus started to yell at them, according to the report.
When they turned to walk towards the door, a person in the front row confronted one of them and grabbed him by the neck and placed him in a headlock.
It was then that the Lambda Chi brother said he was punched in the face multiple times by members of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. According to the report, the Lambda Chi was able to get out of the headlock and escape from the bus.
The member of Lambda Chi stated in the report that he did not do anything to provoke a fight and wishes to press charges for the battery.
While on organizational interim suspension, Kappa Sigma will not be able to participate in socials, philanthropies or intramural competitions. The fraternity has a hearing on Oct. 1 at 11 a.m. to address the continuation of the interim suspension.
