A junior was arrested on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 1:22 a.m. at the Theta Chi Fraternity house. He was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

UR Security officers and Rochester Police Department officers were already present at the house to investigate underage drinking. They shut down the party and the guests at the house were asked to leave.

When asked to leave, the suspect began to verbally abuse the police officers and physically resisted leaving the house.

The police officers and the suspect stumbled down the steps of the house, with the suspect continuing his resistive behavior.

The individual was warned that if he did not cease his actions, he would be pepper-sprayed. He kept resisting the officers and a chemical agent was deployed.

The suspect then became passive and was taken into custody and removed by police officers from the property.

Student talks back to officers in frat house

Security was present at the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity house on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 2:47 a.m., following up on a call made to the Medical Emergency Response Team regarding an intoxicated underage student.

According to Lafferty, a fraternity brother was interfering with the preliminary investigations being performed by the police officers as well as the Security officers.

The suspect was told to leave, yet he refused, stating that it was “his house.”

The police proceeded to inform the suspect that if he failed to comply with their requests, he would be arrested. The suspect responded by saying the officers “couldn’t” do that.

The suspect was escorted from the house, but later returned and was watched over by his fellow brothers. The officers advised his brothers to keep the suspect in the house for the remainder of the night.

The suspect confessed that his behavior was due to the fact he thought the police officers were Security officers.

No arrest was made. Alcohol was deemed to be a contributing factor.
