SHARE Univ. of Florida suspends fraternity over abuse of wounded vets

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A University of Florida fraternity has been suspended after allegations that its members insulted and spat at a group of disabled military veterans at a Panama City Beach resort.

The school said on Friday that it is charging the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity with obscene behavior, public intoxication, theft, causing physical or other harm and damage to property.

The suspension came after the fraternity expelled three of its members after finding they had behaved inappropriately.

The situation occurred while the fraternity and veterans with the Warrior Beach Retreat were at the Laketown Wharf Resort last weekend.
