A University of Central Florida fraternity accused of using a date rape drug on women is being investigated by the UCF Police Department and UCF's Office of Student Conduct.

Members of the Delta Upsilon fraternity have been accused by three unnamed members of UCF's Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority of attempting to drug their drinks.

According to statements from the three sorority sisters, members of DU were playing a ‘game' with ‘roofies' that involved drugging random drink bottles before socials, passing them around to the girls on the bus not knowing which bottles had been drugged and trying to guess at the end of the night.

This particular alleged incident happened during a pirate-themed social on Feb. 10.

We're taking this very seriously, said Sgt. Troy Williamson, the police department's community relations supervisor. 

UCF officials released this statement regarding the incident:

"The UCF Office of Student Conduct and UCF Police will be conducting reviews of the incident. Our No. 1 priority is to provide a safe environment for the entire university community, including our Greek organizations. We support the efforts of our fraternities' and sororities' national offices to hold their members accountable to the values that the vast majority of our students uphold."

According to a letter from Delta Upsilon International Fraternity's Executive Director Justin Kirk addressed to UCF's DU chapter, the redevelopment phase for their chapter of DU, which was placed on reorganization status on Jan. 25 by DUIF, ends on March 28. Appeals to the board of directors are also due that day.
