Fraternity closes 'unsafe' LSU chapter

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A Louisiana State University fraternity has closed after its national leaders deemed the chapter to be "unsafe."
  
The Advocate reports that LSU's Lambda Chi chapter was closed Sunday following a vote by the fraternity's national board of directors.
  
In 2015, LSU had placed Lambda Chi on probation for hazing through May 2019. Tad Lichtenauer, a spokesman for the fraternity's national headquarters, said the board's vote was based on "a pattern of history" that doesn't reflect the fraternity's "standards."
  
A different LSU fraternity, Phi Delta Theta, was closed after the Sept. 14 death of an 18-year-old student, Maxwell Gruver. Ten people were arrested on misdemeanor hazing charges in Gruver's death. A coroner said the freshman's blood-alcohol content was more than six times the legal limit for driving when he died.
