LEXINGTON, Va. (AP) - Washington and Lee University has suspended a fraternity for three years following a hazing incident.

Media outlets report that Washington and Lee President Kenneth Ruscio announced the suspension of Phi Kappa Psi on Wednesday in a letter to students, faculty and staff.

Ruscio says a fraternity member used a taser on a new member on March 5. The hazing was reported the next day through the university's anonymous online hazing report form.

The Interfraternity Council had voted Tuesday night to suspend Phi Kappa Psi for a year and a half. Ruscio says he added another year and a half to the suspension. He called the incident "clear physical abuse."
