STORRS, Conn. (AP) — The University of Connecticut has banned a second Greek Organization over a hazing incident in which a woman says she was forced to lie on the floor and "sizzle like bacon" and then drink until she passed out.

The Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity joins Kappa Kappa Gamma, which had its registration revoked last week over the same hazing incident in March.

The school says the hazing of sorority members occurred at Sigma Alpha Epsilon's off-campus house.

The fraternity won't be allowed to reapply as a student organization for five years. It has until May 19 to appeal Monday's ruling.

The school says this is the latest in a series of incidents involving the fraternity, which was placed on probation in 2010 after a member urinated on another organization's homecoming float.
