Panama City Beach Police Find ZBT Members Acted Inappropriately
The Panama City Beach Police have finished their investigation of the actions of the University of Florida’s chapter of Zeta Beta Tau.
The investigation concluded that the members of the fraternity did act inappropriately.
Members of the fraternity were accused of assaulting veterans at the Warrior Beach Retreat in Panama City Beach.
The fraternity members were staying at the Laketown Wharf Resort at Panama City Beach for their spring formal when members allegedly spit on flags and took them from wounded veterans.
The Panama City Beach Police were not able to charge any members.
“At this point and time we have been unable to identify members from the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity that were involved in the incident,” Cpt. Robert Clarkson of the criminal investigative division of the Panama City Beach Police Department, said.
ZBT was suspended on April 24 and closed on April 28 after allegations of disrespectful behavior became known the UF and the Executive Director of the National ZBT. Three members were expelled from the chapter after the incident.
