After receiving a complaint about noise in a fraternity house, authorities found five BU students in the basement. They were tied up and duct-taped to each other, and were wearing only underwear. Police said that the students had welts on their backs and had been covered in honey and hot sauce. Students in the house belong to Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity, which is not affiliated with BU. The national fraternity has suspended the BU chapter.
