UT Austin "Texas Cowboys" Suspend Some Members Over Hazing Incident

Austin Statesman — A University of Texas spirit group says it has suspended some members and expelled others who participated in hazing the night before a new member was grievously injured in a wreck on the way back to Austin from a retreat. But the Texas Cowboys, echoing an earlier statement by its alumni group, said a third-party investigation found that neither alcohol nor hazing contributed to the accident that led to Nicholas Cumberland’s death four weeks later.

The statement released by William Furst, the foreman of the Cowboys and a senior majoring in UT’s Plan II honors program and economics, is the first public comment by the student organization since Cumberland was ejected from a pickup Sept. 30 on U.S. 183 in Lampasas County. Cumberland, 20, was a junior majoring in business, finance and radio-television-film.
