Kappa Sigma terminates chapter after TV almost hits woman

July 5, 2018

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The national Kappa Sigma fraternity has terminated its University of Wisconsin-Madison chapter after people pushed a television off the chapter’s balcony and nearly hit a woman.

Police believe the incident took place sometime this past weekend. Instagram videos show people pushing a cathode-ray television set off Kappa Sigma’s Madison house’s balcony while a crowd looks on. The television plunges to earth and barely misses a woman walking by. The crowd cheers and begins stomping on the wrecked TV.

UW-Madison officials announced Thursday that the fraternity terminated the chapter’s charter Tuesday. A message left at Kappa Sigma’s national headquarters Thursday wasn’t immediately returned.

University officials also said Thursday that they’ve suspended the fraternity pending an investigation.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports two 20-year-old fraternity members have been cited for disorderly conduct.
