Another JSU Hazing Arrest


24-year old Jacolby Quantel Parks of Atlanta has been charged with felony assault and misdemeanor hazing. 

Warrants had been issued for his arrest back in October.

He turned himself in at the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office Thursday and was released on a $5,000 bond.

A lawsuit filed in July 2012 by former Alpha Phi Alpha pledge Jason Horton alleges that during a fraternity event on Nov. 26, 2011, he was made to drink excessive amounts of alcohol, beaten with fists and paddles and hit with eggs and other objects for more than four hours.

The following day, Horton claims he sought medical treatment, against the advice of fraternity members, and it was discovered he was bleeding internally.

Horton’s liver was enlarged and his kidneys were functioning at 50 percent.

He spent 24 days in the hospital recovering from his injuries.
Ten men pleaded not guilty in December to charges stemming from the alleged incident.

Several more defendants are expected to enter pleas this month.
JSU’s chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha was dismissed from campus.
