A hazy hazing case at Arkansas Tech 

A fraternity pledge spent nearly a month at UAMS.

According to Walker, there have been no disciplinary actions from Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. against the men who allegedly participated in the hazing. "The fraternity was going to have some sort of hearing, but I heard that, subsequent to our not having Mr. Scoggins appear, that frustrated that. ... It's our position that DeShawn needs to get his case handled first, and also he should not be subjecting himself to any disciplinary action for participating in hazing when he was the hazee," said Walker. At least nine KAP chapters remain on Arkansas college campuses.

Whether or not Scoggins' injuries were accidental, Walker emphasizes that they were life-threatening. "Doctors thought he would not make it ... if he were not a superstar athlete, he most likely would have died," Walker said.
