Student loses eye, UH investigates
A UH student lost an eye after being kicked in the face at Bayou Oaks. Disciplinary action is still pending.
The UH Department of Public Safety Daily Crime Bulletin for Sept. 22 reported that a UH student was recklessly kicked in the face causing serious bodily injury. The incident occurred between 2:30 and 3 a.m. Sept. 20.
The incident was not on behalf of any fraternity at the community, although it did occur in a common area of a fraternity house where students were drinking, UH officials said. The University will not be investigating any of the fraternities at Bayou Oaks.
“The case is being actively investigated, and it would not be appropriate for the University to comment while an investigation is underway. In addition, student privacy laws under (the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) do not allow us to comment,” said Richard Bonnin, Executive Director of Media Relations.
