TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- Four Florida State University students are facing hazing charges. Members of the Sigma Chi chapter at FSU are accused of hazing pledges.
21-year-old Tyler Linabury, 22-year-old Alex Lavene, 19-year-old Charles Kalb and 21-year-old Michael Salem were arrested in an investigation stemming back to October 2013. Deputies say they blindfolded pledges and encouraged binge drinking, without letting them use the restroom. Some students needed medical attention because of their intoxication level.
Hazing is a first degree misdemeanor. FSU police say the chapter has been suspended. An investigation is ongoing.
