On Monday night Busville police and University Public Safety conducted an operation at the Lambda Pi Eta fraternity house at 1704 Casper Drive. Busville Police arrested 85 people of whom 50 are students. Lambda Pi Eta Fraternity President Bugs Meany was pronounced dead at the Busville Hospital.
University spokesperson Jon Smyth said, “Bugs Meany suffered an apparent drug overdoes.”
In total three people were sent to the hospital with Mr. Meany. The other two are university professors. It was not clear what they were doing at the party. Mr. Smyth also cleared the rumors that prostitutes were at the frat party, and called these allegations “false.”
The identity of the arrested and the professors has not yet been revealed.
The university has a strict policy of no parties or alcohol on off-campus university-owned housing. The Lambda Pi Eta house had its charter revoked last semesters due to reoccurring parties.
