Arrests made after UBC frat party

September 13, 2010

Several arrests were made following a 2-day fraternity party at the University of British Columbia. The party began Friday night at UBC's fraternity village. About 1,000 people attended that evening's party, where personal property, such as laptops and stereos, were stolen. The party continued Saturday, with between 500 and 1,000 people attending. University RCMP went to the frat house Saturday night to respond to reports that a large fight had broken out. Several officers were assaulted while trying to break up the crowd. The president of Inter Fraternity Council at UBC says the problem was uninvited attendees. In a statement, UBC says fraternities must take responsibilities for their own parties, but the university will work to ensure such behaviour is not repeated. Vancouver Sun | CBC | CTV
