News & Notes: Penn’s women lacrosse team allegedly wreaked havoc at bar

The University of Pennsylvania is conducting an investigation after members of its women’s lacrosse team allegedly damaged Fado Irish Pub during a party Saturday night, The Daily Pennsylvanian reported.

Director of Athletic Communications Michael Mahoney said in a statement that Penn coaches and senior staff are meeting with lacrosse team members and are deeply concerned about the allegations made by the bar’s manager.

Fado general manager Casey Neff told The Daily Pennsylvanian that a group of about 50 people attending a lacrosse team event had shattered a glass light fixture, smoked marijuana in the bathroom and exposed a female student’s genitals to patrons.

Neff also said that he does not plan on filing charges because he was not able to identify which specific individuals were responsible for the damage.

Student groups affiliated with the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School have already been banned from Fado due to past unruly conduct. The allegations include cocaine use and urinating on the bar.
