---- — HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — A Grafton County grand jury has indicted a fraternity at New Hampshire’s Dartmouth College on two charges of providing alcohol to minors.

Hanover Police Chief Nick Giaccone told the Valley News (http://bit.ly/WtuViW) that officers repeatedly warned the Alpha Delta fraternity that it was in danger of criminal sanctions after several intoxicated minors were found near the fraternity house last fall. The indictments allege that the fraternity provided alcohol to an 18-year-old male on Oct. 14 and a 20-year-old female on Oct. 5.

In 2011, two students were seriously injured when they fell 40 feet off the roof of the fraternity house; police said both had been drinking.
