The participation of “Mad Men” star, Jon Hamm, in a fraternity hazing incident in 1990 was revealed this week by Star Magazine, according to the Huffington Post. Hamm was attending the University of Texas and a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity when the incident occurred. A former pledge alleged that Hamm and other members violent abused him, and even set his pants on fire at one point. Hamm and four other fraternity members were charged with hazing. Hamm was also charged with assault, but that was later dismissed, and Hamm received deferred adjudication for the hazing charge. The fraternity permanently disbanded after the incident. Hamm left UT that semester and would be later named in a 1991 lawsuit, which was dismissed in 1993.
