West Virginia University suspends fraternity, students

A viral ‘Little Sisters’ comment by Gee nearly eight years ago led to this week’s Top 25 marquee matchup between Ohio State and TCU. The Horned Frogs are now one of the Power Five teams in the Big 12. Gee is now West Virginia’s president and chairman of the Big 12 board of directors. And the Bowl Championship Series has since been replaced by the four-team College Football Playoff. When No. 15 TCU plays No. 4 Ohio State on Saturday night, Sept. 15, 2018, Gee may even have a different rooting interest. (AP Photo/Jay LaPrete, File)

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia University has suspended a fraternity chapter and several students after a student fell while visiting at the fraternity house.
The university said 22-year-old senior finance major David Rusko of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, fell down stairs at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house on Saturday. WVU said in a news release that Rusko was left unconscious by the fall and was taken to a hospital.
The school said university police officers found that more than two hours passed between Rusko’s fall and a call made by fraternity members to 911.
The university issued individual interim suspensions and placed the SAE chapter on interim suspension. The school said additional students may face disciplinary action.
