Police: Student willingly had his buttocks branded (AP) Breckenridge authorities said a Texas Christian University student who suffered burns when his peers branded his buttocks participated in the act willingly and no charges will be filed. Authorities said Thursday they made the decision not to pursue charges after reviewing statements from Amon Carter IV and a dozen TCU students. The Summit Daily News reported that Carter had Greek symbols from his fraternity and a sorority branded on his buttocks Jan. 8 during a trip to Breckenridge and needed surgery after suffering second-and third-degree burns. Investigators said what happened was not part of a fraternity initiation because Carter was already a group member. Carter is the great-grandson of Amon G. Carter, Sr., who founded the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
