Quintin Deandrae Day, 26, of Anniston, was charged with one count of first-degree assault and two counts of hazing.
The last of the other 14 arrests was made in January after several men turned themselves in. It’s not immediately clear why Day’s arrest was made so much later than the others, but Calhoun County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Matthew Wade said there is no schedule for making arrests from warrants.
“If they’re not arrested within the first couple of weeks they’ll be picked up on a traffic stop, when a tip comes in or when they’re stopped by law enforcement for another reason,” Wade said. “Just because it was issued on that date, doesn’t mean it was given to us on that date.”
Day and the other suspects are accused of beating Jason Horton during an Alpha Phi Alpha initiation on Nov. 26, 2011. Horton claims in a lawsuit filed in July 2012 that the injuries he suffered in the event caused him to vomit blood.
The suit further states that upon seeking medical treatment Horton discovered he was bleeding internally and that his liver was enlarged, his kidneys were functioning at 50 percent and his urine was black.
He spent 24 days in the hospital to recover from his injuries.
JSU's chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha was dismissed from campus.
