CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The University of North Carolina Charlotte along with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office is investigating a fraternity accused of hazing.

Campus officials told NBC Charlotte the incident happened in the Uwharrie National Forest during the first weekend of September.

Officials said an 18-year-old Waxhaw pledge for Pi Kappa Alpha was forced to drink alcohol during a camp out September 6.  The teen was taken to the hospital on September 7 by fraternity members after not waking up, where doctors determined his blood alcohol level to be .42 -- more then five times the legal limit of .08 -- according to the sheriff's department.

University officials said that the fraternity has been suspended and is not allowed to conduct any activities as long as the investigation continues.

The 18-year-old pledge has since returned to school.

No word yet if anyone will face charges.
