ABC revises Troy arrests down to 55 individuals

TROY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Beverage Control Board is revising its arrest total regarding the Troy fraternity party raid late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning.

The number was at 60. Now the ABC says the final arrest tally is at 55. The arrests break down to 53 underage drinking charges, 1 possession of marijuana charge and 1 disorderly conduct charge.

Troy University says 38 individuals arrested at the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity party were students.

Troy Dean of Student Affairs Herb Reeves said the 38 confirmed students were all arrested as minors for consumption of alcoholic beverages. As of Thursday, no identities have been released.

The party, which ABC agents described as "massive" had as many at 300 participants and was a university-sanctioned event for the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. The university has since suspended the fraternity.

Though identities are not yet available, some of the arrested individuals are said to be athletes with the Troy football and women's basketball programs. An exact number is not known.

The arrests happened at The Pines restaurant downtown and was broken up after someone called authorities to report what they believe were cases of underage drinking.

The restaurant owner said orange wristbands were being used to identify those who could from those who could not drink that night, but pointed out that it's not uncommon for college kids to find their own alcohol and drink before arriving at a party.

Troy University says it is still reviewing the incident and will determine appropriate disciplinary actions for every student involved.
