THE STATESMAN: Off-campus party sparks response from university

BeerpongEight university clubs and organizations have been temporarily suspended for their possible involvement with a house party that occurred on April 12 on Stony Brook Road and incited police response.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., the Suffolk County Police Department and University Police responded to a call regarding the house party. Upon arrival, officers were greeted by over 200 party-goers. A helicopter was also dispatched to the scene.

Sebastian Bullock, 23, of Uniondale; Michael Ferron, 22, of Brooklyn; and Andrew George, 23, of Elmont were later arrested for disorderly conduct, among other charges, as reported by Newsday. However, as stated in a letter from President Samuel L. Stanley, the arrested individuals were not Stony Brook University students.

“The University has been actively engaged in this matter and is taking swift, responsive action,” Stanley wrote.

At the moment, the names of the clubs and organizations that were suspended are being withheld.

A temporary suspension prevents the clubs and organizations from holding meetings and conducting any sort of business, which includes programming and both on-campus and off-campus community service “as a university-recognized club.”
