GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A University of Florida fraternity expelled three of its members Friday after allegations that they hurled insults and spat at a group of disabled military veterans at a Panama City resort.
Zeta Beta Tau Executive Director Laurence Bolotin said that the group made the expulsions after finding that its members had behaved inappropriately.
“I am deeply saddened that the actions of our members ruined this special event and failed to show the respect our military and their families so deserve,” Bolotin said.
The incident occurred while the fraternity and veterans with the Warrior Beach Retreat were at the Laketown Wharf Resort last weekend. The veterans were there for an annual retreat meant to honor their service, and the fraternity had a social function.
Linda Cope, founder of the warrior group, says the frat members were drunk and insulted the veterans and stole their flags.
