The Western Kentucky Wildcats currently has several players under investigation following an alleged assault at a frat house party. The report says that “at least four” Wildcat players visited the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity looking to retaliate for a previous encounter.
The incident only continued to escalate once the football players arrived at the house.
According to the police report, an alumnus fraternity member arrived at the house after being told that several football players were outside and wanted to fight.
After telling them to leave, the alumnus member was pushed up against a chain-link fence and was beaten.
“We are aware of the allegations involving a few members of our football team,” a spokesperson for the Western Kentucky athletic department said. “We are cooperating fully with the authorities. However, at this time, we have not received a police report and cannot provide further comment.”
One of the current members of the fraternity then tried to break up the fight, but was likewise beaten. The football players were allegedly wielding firearms, on head a box-cutter. After police were called, one of the players admitted to the incident. Police believe that this was caused by an event that transpired at the house the night before.
To date, there have been no arrests made in connection with the assault.
