Severe beating alleged and being investigated in Texas

KVUE Excerpt: Last February, Barbara Cabbil and her husband left their home in Burleson to drive to Austin to check on their son, Dwayne, a freshman at Huston-Tillotson.  When they arrived, they were shocked by what they saw.

Cabbil hospitalized her son in after she says he was beaten, elbowed, paddled and caned, leaving him bruised and blackened.  She said Dwayne has broken capillaries on his buttocks, preventing him from being able to sit.

It remains unclear if the hazing incident happened.  A spokesperson with Huston-Tillotson said it was a fellow student who administered the beating, a member of the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

Huston-Tillotson issued a statement on Tuesday, saying, “We’re taking the allegation very seriously.  We’re meeting with various individuals on campus and are doing our own internal investigation,” said Huston-Tillotson, in a statement.  “The university does not condone any type of hazing activities.  It’s against the university’s policy to haze and it’s against the law.”
