fraternity members charged with stealing fish; students protest at house.
The members of Delta Omega Chi who stole a fish from a UC Santa Cruz pond and killed it were charged Friday with misdemeanor grand theft and malicious mischief. They will also face action from the university; an administrator said the organization “could be warned, put on probation, or ‘cease to be an organization on campus,’” according to the Santa Cruz Sentinel. Yesterday, 20 people protested in front of the fraternity’s house, where MTV is filming Fraternity Life 2. “[A]n agreement that was made between MTV and the sheriff’s office,” according to a deputy, resulted in no members being present during the protest, which was about both the fish murder and previous actions by the fraternity. The paper reports that earlier this spring, the fraternity faced judicial review because “frat brothers April 9 were overhead shouting, “How much for your wife and daughter?” to visiting UCSC parents.”
+ also: UCSC paper says the fraternity approached MTV, who supplied them with two houses, “two silver Range Rovers, and individual monthly cash allowances.”
