BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. - Authorities in Breckenridge won't file any charges in the case of a Texas Christian University student who suffered burns when his peers branded his buttocks during a ski trip to Colorado.

That decision was announced Thursday after prosecutors reviewed the statements from Amon Carter IV and a dozen TCU students. The Summit Daily News reports that Carter had Greek symbols from his fraternity and a sorority branded on his buttocks Jan. 8.

The branding caused second- and third-degree burns, and he said he needs plastic surgery to repair the damage.

Investigators say they will not pursue any charges in the case. "All the evidence suggests that Amon Carter IV was a willing participant and the branding was not part of any fraternity initiation, as he is already a full member," a Breckenridge Police Department spokesperson said.

Texas Christian University and officials of Kappa Sigma Fraternity launched investigations into the incident.

Carter told the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram newspaper earlier this week that it was a dumb, drunken decision. He said the group drank and got rowdy and that at some point he agreed to allow his fraternity brothers to finish branding the Kappa Sigma letters on his rear end with a hot coat hanger -- a brand that was apparently started on a spring break trip a year ago.

Carter told the newspaper his frat brothers went too far. Not only did they finish the brand, they also branded triangles -- the Greek symbol for Tri Delta Sorority -- on his other butt cheek while he was passed out.

"I woke up the next morning and I was in a lot of pain," Carter told the Star-Telegram. "My whole other butt cheek was destroyed."

With a name like that you just knew he would end up doing something idiotic.

Was just gonna point that out. TCU's football stadium is named after the kid's great grandfather. Thankfully that wasn't my fraternity.
