Pledges Soaked in Urine, Puked on in Frat House of Horrors

A crew of fraternity brothers are facing charges of hazing after their abuse of pledges allegedly reached a risky and disgusting level.

The students, who attend State University of NY at Plattsburgh, were reported to campus police in September.

Eight members pleaded not guilty on Wednesday, with another scheduled for arraignment on Friday, the station reported.

University police say the abuse happened off-campus in February and September. The victims told authorities how the fraternity brothers subjected the pledges to hazing that ranged from repeated paddling on the buttocks to being forced to swallow chewing tobacco and goldfish.

University officials say the charges include hazing, criminal nuisance and unlawfully dealing with a child, which pertains to providing alcohol to people under 21. He also announced that the fraternity is under a cease and desist order.

Prosecutors refiled charges related to Piazza's death, including involuntary manslaughter, last week.
