Over the past week four UCA students and members of Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity, senior Jeremy Atkins, 22, senior Tyler Nathan Slay, 22, junior Jeffery Keith Bramlett, 20, all of Conway and senior James Holder, 22, of Flippin were charged with residential burglary, terroristic threatening, first-degree criminal mischief and third-degree battery as the result of an Oct. 9 off-campus incident on Destin Drive in Conway, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette also reported, “According to a Conway Police Department report, five people entered Matthew Boster’s home on Destin Drive on Oct. 9, broke down a bedroom door and beat him with their hands and feet. The assailants then went into the living room, where they overturned a couch and damaged a television, the report says. Boster’s girlfriend was in the home at the time as were two other men, one of whom — Landon Williams — said he also was attacked.”
The victims are members of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.
The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette also reported about a fraternity brawl that took place Thursday night at the Conway Expo Center.
