UF investigating hazing allegations
With hazing allegations under investigation by University of Florida police, UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes says the accused organization is on shaky ground.
She says the University of Florida and state law show no tolerance towards hazing, and university officials have recently taken action to combat this problem.
UF President Bernie Machen emailed students to notify them of the weekend incident. Sikes says some of the consequences students involved in this could face include expulsion or criminal action.
