Clemson Frat Brothers Accused Of Assaulting North Carolina Fan (Updated)



Clemson University has another fraternity scandal on its hands …

According to Fox Carolina, a Shelby, N.C. man was brutally beaten by numerous Clemson students during the Tigers’ victory over North Carolina in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) championship game in Charlotte, N.C. on December 5.

Tar Heel fan Richard Pruitt, 33, suffered a broken nose and fractured eye socket during the attack – which he said involved up to fifteen members of Clemson’s Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.  Pruitt’s car was also vandalized during the incident.

Here’s a pic of his injuries that was provided the station …


“University police and administrators are investing allegations that Clemson students were involved in a disturbance in Charlotte while tailgating at the ACC Championship Game, and we have been told that at least one person was injured and property damaged,” a Clemson spokeswoman told the station.  “These allegations, if true, do not reflect the values and character of Clemson University or the majority of our students, and could lead to serious sanctions and possible criminal charges.”

The fraternity has yet to respond to the allegations …

UPDATE: Well, well … in one of the most confusing updates to a story we’ve ever seen, Pruett’s brother told Fox Carolina that Pi Kappa Alpha was not involved in the assault.  “It was a case of mistaken identity and as a brother of the victim I was quick to place blame. I can only offer my apologies to all officials of Clemson University and the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity,” he told the station.
