Columbia University Frat-Boy Drug Ring Busted!
Eight people -- including five Columbia University undergrads, one of whom was the student council vice president -- were arrested this morning in a police raid, prosecutors have announced. The students are accused of peddling drugs (including cocaine, ecstasy, LSD, and pot) at campus dorms and frat houses, and one of their suppliers is charged with "plotting to kidnap a pair of rival cocaine traffickers."
22-year-old Michael Wymbs and 20-year-olds Chris Coles, Harrison David, Adam Klein, and Jose Stephan Perez are all expected to be rung up on drug charges today for selling $11,000 worth of cocaine, marijuana, ecstasy, Adderall, and LSD to undercover cops in their dorms and three campus frat houses.
