STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A former Oklahoma State University student has surrendered to begin serving 20 days in jail after pleading guilty to hazing charges.

The Tulsa World reports that 23-year-old Owen Edward Hossack surrendered at the Payne County jail on Aug. 4 after pleading guilty on Aug. 1 to two misdemeanor hazing charges.

Hossack was a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity and authorities say he fired a handgun to scare pledges at an initiation event nearly a year ago. Police say Hossack also aimed the gun at the pledges’ heads, asking if they would take a bullet for their fraternity brothers.

Hossack also has to complete 75 hours of community service and take a gun safety course.

He was expelled from the fraternity and suspended from OSU for three years.
