ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police are investigating a hazing complaint made by an Albany State University student.

The 18-year-old reported that leaders of a University endorsed mentoring organization forced new members to drink alcohol, smoke marijuana, and do extreme physical activities.

 Tuesday night, Charles Durrah reported leaders of ASU's "Collegiate 100" hazed students at an off-campus apartment. He called the actions "demoralizing."

District Attorney Greg Edwards told us he knows about the complaint; hazing is a misdemeanor in Georgia.

"The content has to be within the process of being at a school or to joins some school organization, or anything. And that can be either a college, high school," said Edwards.

Albany State University Police Chief John Fields says his department is conducting an administrative investigation into what happened and is helping Albany Police with their criminal investigation.
