Washington University officials say members of a campus fraternity crossed a line Tuesday when they allegedly hurled racial slurs at a group of African-American students. The incident reportedly involved students pledging the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity.

Washington University’s Student Life newspaper reports that a group of African-American students were having dinner in the Bear’s Den dining facility when a few students approached and took a photo of them. The fraternity pledges then returned with a larger group of people, and began reciting the words to a rap song that contained repeated use of the "N-word."

University officials have suspended the fraternity while they investigate the incident.

Mike Zissman, president of the Wash U chapter of SAE apologized on Facebook for the incident, calling it "detestable" and "completely unacceptable."

Ellisville Mayor Adam Paul has been suspended pending the outcome of an impeachment hearing.

The City Council voted unanimously Wednesday evening to move forward with a litany of charges against the mayor that include disclosing confidential information and drinking on the job.

Dozens of residents had attended the special council meeting to show support for the Mayor, but it didn't sway the council.

A hearing was scheduled for March 20 to decide whether Paul should be permanently removed from office.

Mayor Paul has been at odds with most of the council over a controversial Walmart TIF since he was elected last April.
