The victim, Amon Carter IV, will need at least six plastic surgeries to repair the damage.

Carter, 20, is a sophomore at Texas Christian University. One night during a ski trip with members of Kappa Sigma and the Tri Delta Sorority in Breckenridge, Colorado, Carter drunkenly agreed to allow his fraternity brothers to use a hot coat hanger to finish a branding of the Kappa Sigma symbols onto his rear. The original branding had started on a spring break trip more than a year ago.

It was a dumb, drunken decision, said Carter, who takes full responsibility for his actions, the Star-Telegram reports.

What a hard lesson to learn but at least he's taking responsibility for his actions. He'll think twice-I hope!-about getting drunk again and letting his Frat Brothers take advantage of him. Thnx Dee.
