FSU PD Arrests Second Fraternity Member On Drug Charges

Florida State University police have arrested a second fraternity member accused of selling drugs on campus. The move comes a day after the school announced more arrests for drug sales would be forthcoming.

Monday FSU police arrested 20-year-old Phi Delta Theta member Garrett Marcy after executing a search warrant on his apartment at the fraternity’s house in Heritage Grove. Now under arrest is 22-year-old Daniel Martin, a member of Pi Kappa Phi—the same fraternity 20-year-old Andrew Coffey was pledging when he died after an off-campus party Friday.  The Tallahassee Police Department says alcohol may have played a role but an autopsy is still being conducted.

FSU PD says it executed a second search warrant Monday but did not say whether it was on a private home or a Greek house.

University president John Thrasher has suspended all Greek activities indefinitely. He told reporters the suspension will stay in place until there is a cultural change within the organizations at the school.
