BU student arrested for damaging vehicles
A member of Baker University's Delta Tau Delta fraternity was arrested over the weekend for allegedly damaging vehicles at a neighboring fraternity.
Baldwin Police Chief Mike McKenna said a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity observed a man breaking side-view mirrors off of vehicles with a baseball bat in the fraternity parking lot at 412 Sixth St. around 1 a.m. Sunday.
McKenna said more than three vehicles at Sigma Phi Epsilon were hit with the baseball bat. Damage to the vehicles was estimated at more than $500.
He said shortly after the incident, a 22-year-old member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity was found by Baldwin police a few blocks away hiding in the bushes.
The Baker student was arrested in connection to the incident and was expected to be charged with felonious criminal damage to property.
"He admitted to police to having been drinking a large amount of whiskey and beer that night," McKenna said.
It was the latest in a string of incidents involving BU fraternities in the past month.
