As if I didn’t have enough reasons to love Jon Hamm, court records recently dredged up from his time at the University of Texas have revealed that he was one depraved, twisted son of a bitch. The incident exposed by the Travis County Court documents was during Hamm’s sophomore year where he told a 21-year-old pledge, “It’s going to be a long night.”
From The Daily Mail:
The unidentified junior was then allegedly subjected to two hours of brutal physical attacks as part of his fiery baptism into the fraternity.
The alleged victim told police that Hamm and other members hit him with a paddle 30 times and then lifted the pledge off the floor by his underwear, ‘pulling it back and forth in a sawing motion’, causing ‘great pain’.
The pledged then claimed that Hamm led him to a basement ‘Pit’ where he slammed the junior’s face into the ground while he was doing push-ups and then allegedly stood on his spine with his full weight.
Shockingly, after this, Hamm is then supposed to have set fire to the pledge’s pants and refused to let him pat the flames down, but instead made him blow them out.
At the end of the vicious hazing ritual, the pledge was taken to a part of the frat house called the ‘Party Room’ where Hamm ‘hooked the claw of a hammer underneath his genitals and led him by the hammer around the room’.
Allegedly not content with this, Hamm then went onto to break into another potential pledge’s room that night and subjected him to a similar torturous initiation.
This eventually led to the Sigma Nu chapter being shut down, and Hamm faced hazing and assault charges in 1991. He eventually reached a plea deal, and the charges were dismissed.
Really makes the hazing stories of today look rather tame, huh? Oh you got suspended for making pledges be sober taxis? Jon Hamm lit a motherfucker on fire. What’s that, your pledge scavenger hunt is being investigated by the university? Jon Hamm clawed some chump by the balls with a hammer..
