OXFORD, MS – Five Ole Miss students face a range of charges after an assault on campus. Police arrested five members of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity in connection with the beating of Sigma Pi fraternity member, Jeremy Boyle.

“Concussion, broken ear drum, broken teeth,” Boyle’s grandfather Robert Boyle told WMC, the NBC affiliate in Memphis, TN. Boyle said his grandson also suffered a bruised lung, bruised ribs and a bruised groin.

“They descended upon him and beat him unmercifully. Beat him within an inch of his life,” Boyle said.

According to Boyle, Jeremy heard a noise outside his fraternity house Sigma Pi on Tuesday, October 6th. When he went to check out the noise, there was an altercation and he was jumped by five Pi Kappa Alpha members, according to WMC.

Ole Miss students said they could not believe the attack happened.

At the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house, Chapter President Gunther Kenudston would only say that those were actions of individuals, and the actions were not connected to fraternity business.

A member of Boyle’s fraternity said the fraternity was letting him and his family handle the matter.

Meanwhile, Ole Miss spokesman Danny Blanton said the university is pleased with the campus police investigation that led to charges in the cause. Blanton said he could not comment any further because of school privacy rules.
