Mad Men fans were stunned last month when leading man Jon Hamm announced he’d secretly completed a 30-day rehab stay for alcohol issues. But has learned that he’s been hiding an even bigger secret! According to a new report, the actor was previously issued an arrest warrant over claims that he assaulted a fellow college student during a brutal hazing incident gone wrong.

According to explosive court documents obtained by Star magazine, Hamm was involved in a fraternity pledging incident gone wrong on November 10, 1990, at the University of Texas at Austin.

The court documents claim that Hamm and his fellow Sigma Nu frat brothers struck a prospective pledge with a wooden paddle more than 30 times on that night. They also allegedly picked him up by his underwear and "pulled it back and forth in a sawing motion," causing "great pain." Hamm even set the pledge’s pants on fire, the documents claim, "and would not let the pledge extinguish the flame with his hand but made him blow it out.

Next, the documents claim, Hamm "hooked the claw of a hammer underneath the pledge’s genitals and led him by the hammer around the room." He rounded out the night by breaking into the apartment of another pledge, the documents claim, "in order to bring him to the fraternity house" to subject him to "similar hazing activity."

The mother of the first pledge reported the incident and arrest warrants were issued for Hamm and seven other frat members. Three of them were sentenced to 30 days in jail for hazing. Hamm was charged with misdemeanor hazing and assault charges, but they were dismissed in 1995 after he reached a plea deal.

A friend tells Star, "The hazing incident was an isolated incident in Jon’s life. Since then, he’s been strong enough to take steps to make himself a better person."
