From the Arizona Daily Star:

The local chapter of Pi Kappa Phi had been in trouble 14 times since 2010 for incidents including hazing and underage booze bashes that ended with students being hospitalized for excessive alcohol consumption, UA officials said.

In the hazing incidents, new fraternity members were deprived of proper food and sleep, they said.

After repeated fines, warnings and stints on probation, the chapter recently was shut down after dual investigations by the UA and the fraternity’s national headquarters.

14 run-ins with the university in the past three years AND multiple warnings, fines, probations, etc? Man, some fraternities just have the “it” factor, don’t they? Born to haze. Can’t stop, won’t stop. Depriving pledges of food and sleep in the midst of other hazing and maltreatment allegations — I can’t say I don’t support that bold strategy.

Come to think of it, don’t we know a Pi Kapp member from the University of Arizona?

That’s right! Jimmy Tatro is from that chapter. Jimmy’s a great guy, though. I seriously doubt he had anything to do with this mess. Probably just a couple bad apples in their chapter.

Oh man, do you guys remember that awesome video that Jimmy made a while back about his little brother? I don’t really recall much about the content of the video, but I do remember it being hilarious. Just a few harmless pranks and some light-hearted ball busting or something like that.

Let’s watch it again for old time’s sake.

Notable violations observed in the video include, but are not limited to, the following: verbal assault, forced alcohol consumption, public humiliation, and general maltreatment.

But really, they were shut down.

      hate to break it to ya, but I’ll bet money you aren’t doing or going to do anything significant with your life and jimmy here happens to have turned himself into the next big comedian. He’ll actually be listed as a notable alum, you’re just another face on a composite so until you actually make something of your life, keep your semi-retarded comments with excessive use of the shift key to yourself.

      ^^^Being a notable alumni doesn’t mean shit. “Oh you are a famous poet, and you just so happened to join the same fraternity as me at your shitty liberal arts school? I’m putting you on the notable alumni list.” Sorry, I’d rather be headed into my major that can secure my future family with a 6 to 7 figure salary than just get by off of meager salaries that are based off of the quality of “my poetry”.

      if there are people out there that think jimmy is funny, let alone funny enough to be the “next big comedian” i can’t decide if they should kill themselves for being too retarded and simple to exist or if i should just kill myself because there’s no fucking hope anymore

    I’m excited to see if Jimmy’s got anything to say about this… I’ve gotten the feeling recently he kinda grew distant from his chapter but this might not be true.
