Chico State fraternity Pi Kappa Alpha pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to vandalism of a campground in Tehama County.

The incident was reported on April 28, when Tehama County Sheriffs got a call with claims accusing the fraternity of littering and cutting down trees in a camping area of Lassen National Forest.
