Think there is no personal downside for hazing?

These guys probably thought so too.

Two members of a suspended University of Texas at San Antonio fraternity have been charged with hazing in connection with an incident involving partial nudity, drinking of “questionable” liquids and “burning of skin requiring medical treatment.”

Prakash Mammen and Aurash Javidinejad, both 22, were charged on Saturday and Monday, respectively, with bail set at $800 for each, according to arrest records. Hazing is a misdemeanor.

Attempts to reach both men were unsuccessful.

UTSA spokesman Joe Izbrand declined to provide details of the alleged Sept. 4, 2011, hazing incident, saying he was restricted by law in what he could discuss. But he did say it occurred off campus.

The Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter was suspended when the university learned of the alleged incident shortly after it was reported, Izbrand said. The fraternity was banned from campus through August 2015, he added.
