UF Fraternity Members allegedly Spat on Veterans

Three members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at the University of Florida have been expelled from the organization after a brawl with disabled veterans in Panama City, Fl. The incident occurred Friday night during a spring formal at Laketown Wharf Resort, where Iraq and Afghanistan veterans had also gathered for the annual Warrior Beach Retreat.

The drunk Zeta Beta Tau students allegedly threw beer bottles off the balcony of the resort, spit on several disabled veterans, and stole and urinated on a veteran’s flag.

Students from Emory University’s Zeta Beta Tau chapter also stand accused.

“In all of my years, I’ve never seen such debauchery and disrespect,”said Linda Cope, founder of the Warrior Beach Retreat, whose son lost both his legs in a roadside bomb attack in Iraq.

Police were not called and no reports were filed.

The fraternity members were evicted from the resort, however, and a military wife who attended the retreat with her husband reported the story to the media.

University of Florida President Kent Fuchs promised a full investigation into the incident.

Zeta Beta Tau was already on probation for previous misconduct and the chapter has now suspended all activities to cooperate with the investigation.
