Students arrested after vandalizing fraternity


Two WSU students were arrested after a break-in and assault on members of Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

After breaking into Phi Delta, Hudson B. Flynn and John M. Petsch smashed a TV, spilled hot sauce on a pool table, stole a clock, and broke a coffee table.

Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said the two males were followed by members of Phi Delta who had seen them commit the crimes.

“The suspects didn’t like being followed, so they turned around and got into a fist fight,” Tennant said.

By that time, police arrived on the scene and arrested the suspects.

Flynn was charged with first degree burglary, third degree theft, forth degree assault, and second degree malicious mischief.

Petsch was charged with residential burglary and third degree malicious mischief.

Tennant said the break-in stemmed from an issue that the two suspects had with Phi Delta from a previous altercation.
