Fraternity Suspended After Allegedly Using Color-Code System To Drug Female Guests

Three women and one man were taken to the hospital.

The Zeta-Zeta chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has been suspended by the University after allegations that the fraternity used a color-coded system to put date-rape drugs in drinks of female guests. The University made the announcement via Twitter, suspending the organization while an investigation is underway.

The TKE chapter held a party on September 12, where three women and one man who had attended all were vomiting and unable to walk back at their dorm that night and were later taken to the hospital.

At the party guests were marked with a red or black x upon entry, and only female guests were allowed to purchase an index card, which granted them "all access to the house" where they could get alcohol from any of the bars. University officers reported to the house at 1:20 am, where at least 40 people were in attendance, including many students that were underage.

The women who were hospitalized all had their hands marked with a red x, with one saying she had a "weird feeling" before she blacked out. The man had a black x on his hand from the fraternity, but had taken a drink from a female's cup who had a red x.

"Police tell us that one person has been arrested in the case, but has not been charged pending review by the district attorney," Tom Luljak, vice chancellor for university relations at UW-Milwaukee, told the Huffington Post. The police haven't released the name of the individual that was arrested.
