A Bowie State University student has filed a $3 million lawsuit claiming he was hazed while joining the Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity.
Kevin Hayes alleges he was beaten, body-slammed, spanked with a wooden paddle on a daily basis between September 2013 and December 2013 and instructed not to tell anyone.
“[They said] it makes you stronger,” Hayes said. “They said, ‘If you tell, you’re a snitch.'”
Hayes said he recently hired an attorney because he couldn’t take the continued harassment.
