ASU Fraternity Dishonors MLK Jr.

(AURN/AP) -- An Arizona State University fraternity's operations have been suspended pending an investigation into accusations that the local Tau Kappa Epsilon's chapter hosted a distasteful weekend party in commemoration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

That as Arizona civil rights leaders are calling on ASU to permanently suspend the fraternity and expel all students involved.  In 2012, the University of Arizona suspended its Tau Kappa Epsilon chapter after instances of dangerous hazing.

University officials planned a meeting today with fraternity representatives regarding the off-campus party. ASU officials tell The Arizona Republic they're investigating the offensive party and have suspended the fraternity's operations.

A fraternity spokesman calls the party an embarrassment and notes an investigation is ongoing.
