TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- A Florida State University fraternity is facing an interim suspension after the university says an alleged hazing incident may have happened.

The Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity received a letter from the university notifying them that the school is looking into if they broke the FSU student conduct code. The code of conduct says disciplinary action could result if an incident, "may affect the safety, health, or general welfare of the student or the university community."

The interim suspension means the chapter cannot participate in events on or off campus, hold weekly meetings, participate in intramurals or use university facilities. They also cannot have any contact with pledge members, whether face to face, email or through social media. This is all pending an open investigation by the university.

We reached out to Florida State and University Police, but they cannot comment because this is an open investigation. If the fraternity is found to break any of the interim suspension terms, the university says they could face student conduct code charges.
