Fairmount Ave., where a group of males had approached the house and began to fight fraternity members, according to a news release.“Police are aware of the potential of Penn State student-athletes, in addition to Greek life members, being involved in this incident,” the update said. “University Athletics and Compliance officials are assisting with identifying involved parties.”This is a very serious matter for Penn State, and it’s likely that the university waits for all the information to get released before taking any further steps.It’ll be a nail-biting time for those involved with the fraternity and sports teams for the Nittany Lions.[StateCollege.com]last_img read more
