Arkansas Student Files Claim in Alleged Hazing Case

November 22, 2010

A student at the University of Arkansas who says he almost died after an alleged hazing incident has filed a claim with the state Claims Commission.

In the claim filed earlier this month, Nicholas Brown says university administrators knew the Phi Delta Theta fraternity was “out of control” but did little to stop it. Brown claims that inaction led to his hazing and near death.

The Northwest Arkansas Times reports that Brown wants the state to pay for what he says was the negligence of the university and its administrators and wants a jury trial.

Brown says he fell into a coma after being forced to drink whiskey and beer during a party at the fraternity house.

University attorney Scott Varady says the school did follow proper protocol with the fraternity.

    I agree, he is not a child. He is a grown man who knew the consequences to these types of actions. Just another one looking for a free ride.
