DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — A University of New Hampshire fraternity where 11 students were arrested during a weekend drug raid has had its charter revoked by its national leaders.

Nine Alpha Tau Omega brothers were arrested on drug charges early Sunday. Two others were charged with disorderly conduct, and police expect to make more arrests as the investigation continues.

Deputy Police Chief Rene Kelley said Monday the men are accused of selling and possessing marijuana and prescription medication.

The fraternity already had been issued a five-year suspension by the university last month for alcohol violations, and national fraternity leaders already had begun the process to revoke the chapter's charter. That process was accelerated after the raid and was complete Monday afternoon.
