A Boston University sorority has been suspended following reports of a hazing incident involving alcohol.
The Sigma Delta Tau sorority is being investigated by school officials after the Boston University Police Department stopped three men carrying members of the sorority down a street in the city's Allston neighborhood March 3, Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reported.
One of the sorority members was intoxicated, according to the university's Panhellenic Council.
The office of the Dean of Students contacted the police on March 6 regarding the incident and suggested it may have stemmed from a hazing incident.
School officials believe the event occurred off campus and may have involved a fraternity, according to the station.
Boston University spokesman Colin Riley said the school takes hazing incidents, which are illegal, very seriously. The sorority will temporarily not be allowed to participate in any activities as an organization on campus.
Riley also said there was a fraternity involved, but that fraternity is not affiliated with the school.
