BOWIE, Md. — A Bowie State University student has filed a $3 million lawsuit against a fraternity after claiming that he was severely hazed.
20-year-old, Kevin Hayes sued Alpha Phi Alpha Monday for battery/hazing, false imprisonment, and gross negligence.
The now-junior was allegedly punched, slapped, body slammed, and paddled by masked men last year while he was pledging.
Here is a blurred picture of Hayes’ buttocks after one of the alleged paddle beatings.
The Bowie State chapter said in a statement that they are unable to comment about any allegations at this time.
The statement continued, “The situation is currently under investigation and the chapter has been placed on a cease and desist, suspending all chapter activities…”
