Acacia frat house damaged during weekend bash
BATON ROUGE - The Acacia fraternity house on LSU's campus sustained property damage over the weekend during a party that marked the beginning of spring break, according to university police.
Members of the fraternity were recently ordered out of the alumni-owned house after LSU found they violated several anti-hazing policies. Members have until Apr. 13 to pack up and move out, but LSU Police found windows smashed and furniture tossed about the property as the sun came up on Saturday morning.
As of Monday afternoon the broken windows were boarded up to keep out the elements, but there is still no clear information on who caused the damage. The fraternity had no comment.
The chapter was shut down by the university until 2018 at the earliest following a university probe into hazing allegations brought to the attention of LSU authorities by new pledges. LSU Police said no criminal charges are pending in connection with the property damage at this time unless the victims, the housing corporation that owns the building and Acacia's alumni group, wish to pursue them.
