Arrested Kappa Sig pledges to be investigated by diversion program

"Full brotherhood" event not meant to encourage stealing, fraternity president says

A dozen Kappa Sigma pledges who were arrested Wednesday while taking part in a scavenger hunt for items ranging from a couch to a girl in her underwear will be investigated by the Dean of Students Diversion Program.

Kappa Sigma has not been notified by the Dean of Students office and does not expect any repercussions from their national chapter, said Chad Foust, Kappa Sigma fraternity president.

A copy of the University of Arizona Police Department report will be forwarded to the Dean of Students soon and the investigation will proceed, said Melissa Vito, dean of students.
