Greek festivities marred by violent clashes, injuries
Sept. 12, 1982 – Fifty kegs of beer, two bands and 2,000 people made up the simultaneous celebrations held at Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Alpha Epsilon Friday night.
The night was a peaceful one until after the festivities ended.
Tom Lewandowski, a sophomore and member of Phi Delta Theta, was watching a fight outside of his fraternity when he caught a punch and sustained minor cuts over his left eye.
The next day, another member of Lewandowski’s fraternity reported that Lewandowski was fine.
Earlier in the evening, a 17-year-old male was hit over the head with a beer bottle. The suspect was caught and released, pending a formal complaint from the victim, according to Sgt. Richard DeGrand of the Ann Arbor Police Department.
“Apparently, it was an argument over a girlfriend,” DeGrand said. “Someone (the victim) knew hit him over the head with a beer bottle. He was hit on the left side of the head, and the bottle broke and really laid into it. Due to the extent of the injury, he’ll probably be charged with felonious assault.
“(The fraternities) have done a fine job of keeping things in control. We certainly don’t blame them for having a good time” DeGrand said.
