Last Pikes Leave UT Chapter House After Suspension

Posted: Updated:

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The final Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity members have moved out of the chapter house at the University of Tennessee.

Sunday evening was the deadline imposed by the university after it suspended the Zeta chapter of the fraternity until at least 2015.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported a discarded big-screen television left on the sidewalk was among a few remnants fraternity members left behind Sunday, after posing for a last photo in front of the building.

UT spokeswoman Karen Ann Simsen said university police were watching the house overnight and the locks were scheduled to be changed Monday morning.

The suspension followed a drunken party September 21 that sent one member to the hospital with a nearly 0.45 percent blood alcohol level amid reports of a wine enema.
