14 Charged At Wilmington College Over Fraternity Hazing Incident Where Pledge Lost A Testicle

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Ohio (AP) — Police have charged 14 people with participating in a fraternity hazing incident that ended with a southwest Ohio college student requiring surgery.

Police made the arrests Thursday after an investigation into the Halloween incident at Wilmington College's Gamma Phi Gamma house. Court records said a fraternity pledge was injured when he was struck with a towel "fashioned as a weapon" and then needed surgery to have a testicle removed.

Jim Reynolds, president of the Quaker college of about 1,000 students southeast of Dayton, says the conduct is unacceptable. The fraternity has been kicked off campus until at least 2019.

The Clinton County prosecutor's office says each suspect is charged with either misdemeanor assault or hazing.
