It may have started just like any other Saturday night. But as of this week, many University of North Carolina Charlotte students now face criminal charges. These alcohol-related criminal charges have the potential to greatly impact their future.
During the recent weekend night in question, campus police received notification from the North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) and local law enforcement informing them of an on-campus traffic stop by the local DUI task force. According to a University spokesperson, police officers followed up on the tip and visited a party off-campus at a fraternity house. The house at issue is located on E. Mallard Creek Church Road. At this party, officers allegedly discovered underage drinking and other alcohol-related issues.
