UGA fraternity chapter shut down

ATHENS, GA (AP) - Kappa Sigma fraternity has shut down its University of Georgia chapter after an investigation.

Mic Wilson, executive director of the fraternity's Virginia-based governing body, announced the closing. A letter sent to the chapter last week says an investigation found that members had violated the fraternity's rules on hazing and substance abuse.

Wilson says Kappa Sigma's governing body launched an investigation into the chapter's activities in early September after receiving complaints.

The chapter's fraternity house will be off limits to fraternity members next semester. University officials are lining up housing for fraternity members.
