Update:

The Lambda Ki Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha has been suspended by the nation fraternity.

“The International Fraternity was severely disappointed to learn of the allegations levied against the Lambda Psi Chapter and has subsequently placed the Chapter on Administrative suspension pending the outcome of the federal investigation,” according to a statement released by the national fraternity Wednesday.

Chico State fraternity, Pi Kappa Alpha, has had criminal charges filed against them by the U.S. Forest Services.

The fraternity is currently charged with cutting down approximately 32 trees and possessing a firearm in violation of federal or state law.

The violation is believed to have occurred over the weekend of April 21, during an initiation of new members.

The charges were filed Tuesday with the possibility of more being filed at a later date, as the investigation is ongoing.

The fraternity and their President, Evan Jossey, are scheduled to appear in court June 26 in Redding.

Pi Kappa Alpha and their President, Evan Jossey, were unavailable for comment.

    I find it strange that the Greek community at Chico State shows up in the comment section by the truck load whenever there is an opinion article about their party and drug culture. They never speak out to condemn things like this. The culture killed an alumni visiting back in April for Cesar Chavez. No one said a word, even though most knew him. Now a fraternity was caught red-handed with this? When will Chico State Greeks get serious about what they supposedly stand for?
