Seven Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity members from the University of Mississippi have been arrested on allegations of cyberstalking, WLBT reports.

Oxford Police Department stated that officers took a report of cyberstalking on Nov. 2 which occurred over social media. On Dec. 3, Nicholas Reynolds, Wyatt Johnson, Peyton Newcomb, Christian Parten, Walker Holden, Cole Goretski and Miles Baker were taken into custody and held at Lafayette County Detention Center.

According to law enforcement, all seven are current students at the university and members of Pi Kappa Alpha, a fraternity whose charter was recently suspended.

In a statement reported by WLBT, the university says, “As is evidenced by the suspension of all operations of the Gamma Iota chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha of the University of Mississippi effective until May 1, 2025, hazing and related behavior, including cyberstalking, that put student health and safety at risk are contrary to the University of Mississippi Creed and will not be tolerated.”

All in custody are being charged with felony cyberstalking and were given a $5,000 bond.
