A UT student and a former member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity were injured following an altercation with unknown assailants early Sunday morning in Fraternity Park, according to UT Police.
According to a UTPD report filed after the incident, the altercation occurred at 4:31 a.m. outside the Pi Kappa Phi house.
George Angelopoulos, a UT student and current member of Pi Kappa Phi, said in the police report that he was "struck several times about the head, face and body."
"While they (were) outside the fraternity house they and other members of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity were involved in a physical altercation with several unknown persons," the report said. "They ... believe that the subjects were members of Phi Gamma Delta (fraternity)."
However, no members of Phi Gamma Delta were identified in the police report as having been present during the altercation.
"The primary members that started the incident were from out of town," said Matt Dunkin, president of Phi Gamma Delta. "There were a large group of guys here for the ballgame. I don't know if they were with us. It seems as if this has been blown out of proportion."
The officer reported that neither Angelopoulos nor Michael Langston, a former member of Pi Kappa Phi who was identified in the police report, could identify any of the other persons involved in the altercation, but said they could identify them if they saw them again.
Matt Blacky, a member of Pi Kappa Phi, said the fraternity's president and pledge educator tried to intervene and keep the situation under control.
"I witnessed (those involved) swinging a golf club at a brother of Pi Kappa Phi," Blacky said.
Langston was struck in the head with a golf club, according to the police report.
"There were visible bruises and abrasions on Langston's face," UT police officer J. Perkins reported.
Perkins transported Langston to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for treatment. Angelopoulos refused to be taken for treatment.
Angelopoulos told police no weapons were used in the injuries he sustained.
