Penn State’s Kappa Delta Rho was removed from campus for the next three years, but they somehow can’t help but elongate their 15-minutes in the media spotlight. We first heard of these goobers last semester when they were kicked off of Penn State’s campus for posting naked pictures on their Facebook page of passed-out women, plus a myriad of other violations.
They resurfaced a few months later when two PSU Greek chapters went to court to decide who would lease the vacated KDR house. In the end, a judge ruled that Kappa Sigma would be moving into the former KDR mansion.
KDR popped back into the spotlight this week when a suspect accused of breaking into the current house of Penn State’s Kappa Sigma was identified as the past president of Kappa Delta Rho. If the story in the campus paper has any credibility, former KDR president Joshua Tonn was seemingly feeling mighty nostalgic on the night of September 16 as he attempted to relive his glory days in the old house at the expense of the new residents.
From Daily Collegian:
Video evidence was provided of the trespassing, according to the complaint. The video shows Tonn entering the house through a side door, and there is additional footage of him in the home’s kitchen and upstairs hallway.
According to the complaint, video evidence then shows Tonn sitting on a second floor landing, where he was confronted by residents of the Kappa Sigma fraternity.
The article does not mention any substances that may have been involved in this clearly well thought out plan, but for Tonn’s sake, I genuinely hope he didn’t devise such a shoddy mission while coherent.
After being confronted by the residents, Tonn uttered one of the most depressing phrases I’ve heard in a while — one that clearly paints a picture of a man who misses his days as an active brother.
Two residents asked Tonn to leave, and he refused and responded, “I just want to sit where I used to sit.” Tonn did leave on his own accord after at least 15 minutes, according to the complaint.
KDR shit the bed quite hard in order to lose their place on campus, but even then, it’s tough not to feel for the guy. All he wants is some time to remember the greatest moments of his life. It’s only natural. Humans love to miss something that they can no longer enjoy.
There is no word yet on any possible charges that could be filed against Tonn. Centre County jail records do not list anyone with the same name..
