PETERSBURG, Va., April 9 (UPI) -- Charges were filed against three Virginia State University students, including the student government president, in a hazing incident, court documents said.

Police are investigating the August 2012 hazing incident, which allegedly involved the Petersburg, Va., school's Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported Tuesday.

An arraignment was held Monday for Brandon Randleman, student government association president. Disposition of the case was deferred until May, court documents said.

Details of the alleged incident were not immediately available, the newspaper said, noting the school has had hazing issues in the past, including a lawsuit filed by a former student who claimed he was a hazing victim while pledging for the school's Phi Beta Sigma fraternity.
