    A Texas Christian University fraternity chapter founded in 1955 has been suspended by its national office for alleged hazing.

    Delta Tau Delta said it took the action after finding its TCU chapter violated multiple rules, including hazing, and compromised its values.

    "Hazing is an aberration to those values," the fraternity said in a press release. "It cannot and will not be tolerated."

    The suspension means the chapter can no longer use the name Delta Tau Delta and is no longer in good standing with the national organization, the fraternity said.

    The release did not detail the alleged hazing or say whether anyone was injured.

    TCU spokeswoman Holly Ellman declined to say if a police investigation was underway and referred questions to the fraternity.

    The university issued a short statement saying it expects all student organizations to follow the rules.
