Auburn student in ICU after fight at fraternity

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - An 18-year-old Auburn University student injured during a fight in the parking lot of a fraternity house remains in intensive care in Columbus, Ga.

Auburn police and university officials have not released the student's name, but friends say freshman Taylor Jones was injured between 1 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

Police Capt. Tom Stofer said the victim was involved in an altercation at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house and that no weapon other than fists was used.

Stofer said the incident is under investigation and no arrests have been made.

Hunter Robinson, a childhood friend of Jones, said the fight took place after the freshman tried to attend a party at the fraternity house.

Jones led a protest in support of head football coach Tommy Tuberville in December after the university announced that he had resigned.
