Florida Frat Bros Accused of Spitting on Veterans, Peeing on Flags
Three members of the University of Florida’s Zeta Beta Tau fraternity have been expelled from the campus chapter after they allegedly spit on and hurled beer bottles at veterans attending a retreat at Panama City Beach. Some were apparently seen peeing on veterans’ American flags.
The Zeta Beta Tau chapters of University of Florida and Emory University were at the Laketown Wharf Resort in Panama City Beach last weekend to hold their annual, joint spring formal. Veterans had also convened at the resort for Warrior Beach Retreat, held for about 60 vets who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
On Friday, vets say, members of UF’s Zeta Beta Tau chapter were seen spitting on veterans, throwing beer bottles at them from their hotel room balconies, ripping flags off their cars, and insulting them for “wearing caps and T-shirts.” Some Zeta Beta Taus were also apparently seen peeing on American flags.
