FORT WORTH -- The Delta Tau Delta fraternity chapter at TCU has been suspended for hazing, according to fraternity's national office.

"This is a painful but necessary action," Jim Russell, the Delta Tau Delta national chapter's executive vice president, said in a statement. "This chapter, including its leadership, willfully violated not only the Fraternity's risk management policy but also our stated values. Hazing is an aberration to those values. It cannot and will not be tolerated."

The hazing incidents happened this semester, but more details were not released.

The TCU fraternity was informed on Dec. 3 that it was suspended.

TCU released a statement Wednesday, acknowledging that the chapter had been suspended.

"TCU expects student organizations to abide by the Student Code of Conduct, the Student Organization Handbook and policies of the national and international fraternal organization," the university statement said.
