ATHENS, Ohio (CBS/AP) Pi Beta Phi, a national sorority suspended for misconduct at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, now has a second chapter in the state accused of destructive behavior at a formal, including allegations of a bathroom sex romp.
An attorney for the Parkersburg Art Center in West Virginia says the gallery sustained $46,555 in damage, when Ohio University's Pi Beta Phi chapter held its winter formal March 6. Lawyer Richard Hayhurst says food was thrown around, drinks were dumped on floors, and a sink was pulled from a wall when a couple tried to have sex on it.
An angry letter, obtained by Deadspin, was addressed to Pi Beta Phi Chapter President Anne Duffy.
However, the Ohio University sorority chapter says the gallery that hosted the event is making "grossly exaggerated" claims.
Pi Beta Phi maintains in a statement that the only problem that occurred was that beer taps were taken from the art center.
Ohio University said Monday it's investigating the allegations.
