One Ohio University fraternity is facing hazing charges after two pledges were sent to the hospital.

Delta Tau Delta appeared in court yesterday and entered a plea of not guilty.

The Athens Police Department says Michael Pristera and Thomas Rotar were treated at O’Blenness Hospital for visible injuries to the face, chest, arms, and back after last Thursday night’s incident. It says both men were forced to drink alcohol and if they didn’t take part, they would be hit.

Delta Tau Delta’s hearing is set for November 23rd at 8 a.m.
