3rd arrest made in UTSA hazing incident

Zachary Rodriguez, 23, charged in connection with September 2011 incident

Police have made their third arrest this week in a fraternity hazing incident at UTSA. 

Zachary Rodriguez, 23, was arrested Wednesday morning in connection with the September 2011 incident. 

While a UTSA spokesman said the incident in question didn't happen on campus, it did get the fraternity -- Sigma Phi Epsilon -- banned until Aug. 15, 2015.

According to UTSA's "Student Life" web site, the chapter was found to have committed failure to report hazing, consumption of questionable liquids, partial nudity and burning of skin that required medical attention, among other offenses.

The other students who were arrested were both 22-year-olds. Prakash Mammen was taken into custody over the weekend. He was able to post bond. Aurash Javidinejad was arrested Monday.

If convicted, hazing carries a possible sentence of up to 180 days in jail and up to $5,000 in fines.
