DOVER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – Officials at ski resorts in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula say University of Michigan fraternity members were responsible for thousands of dollars in vandalism.
According to reports police escorted students from Treetops Resort in Dover Township near Gaylord sometime last weekend. Resort general manager Barry Owens reports about $50,000 in damage to furniture, carpet, walls and ceilings.
Treetops identified them as members of Sigma Alpha Mu. The national fraternity’s executive director Lee Manders declined comment.
The Associated Press left a message with Otsego County Sheriff Matt Nowicki.
Damage also was reported in condominiums at Boyne Highlands near Harbor Springs that officials say involved members of two other fraternities.
The university says in a statement that students will be held accountable and it expects repayment for all damages.
