GAYLORD, Mich. (AP) – Two of three University of Michigan students charged after their fraternity was blamed for widespread vandalism at a ski resort during a wild weekend party in January have waived their initial court hearing.
Sigma Alpha Mu chapter president Joshua Kaplan and Zachary Levin face misdemeanor charges of allowing drug and alcohol use by minors. Their lawyer John Minock says the 19-year-olds waived their arraignment appearance in writing Tuesday and are awaiting their next court date.
There are reports that a third fraternity member who was charged with a felony, malicious destruction of a building, less than $20,000, is awaiting arraignment.
Otsego County prosecutor Michael Rola announced charges last week and says more charges are likely. The damage was at Treetops Resort in Gaylord.
