Another University of Arizona fraternity has been felled by one party too many.

The local chapter of Pi Kappa Phi had been in trouble 14 times since 2010 for incidents including hazing and underage booze bashes that ended with students being hospitalized for excessive alcohol consumption, UA officials said

In the hazing incidents, new fraternity members were deprived of proper food and sleep, they said.

 After repeated fines, warnings and stints on probation, the chapter recently was shut down after dual investigations by the UA and the fraternity’s national headquarters.

Local members of the fraternity could not be reached for comment.

The closure marks the fourth time in 15 months that a UA fraternity has been shut down for chronic troublemaking.
