A former California State Bakersfield student has filed a lawsuit against Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. for injuries he sustained in a hazing incident, Southwest Riverside News Network reports.
As a former pledge for the prominent fraternity, Brent McClanahan Jr. is seeking an unspecified amount of money in a negligence lawsuit filed against the crimson and cream organization.
On April 6, 2011, McClanahan reportedly “collapsed” at his parents’ home and was subsequently rushed to the hospital, according to the lawsuit obtained by SRNN.
McClanahan’s health reportedly began to deteriorate after alleged inhumane acts of hazing acts conducted, including, being shot with a BB-pellet gun and hit with walking canes and “horse style” whips.
McClanahan alleges he suffered herniated and ruptured discs in his back and numbness in his right leg that left him paralyzed and unable to control his bladder, according to SRNN.
McClanahan still needs a cane to walk due to the severity of his injuries, the suit states.
