Yesterday, yours truly noted an article in the Bruin indicating that a ban had been imposed on alcohol at frat parties. There was no further information. Below is what happened:

A former UCLA fraternity president was free on bail Thursday following his arrest in Westwood last weekend on suspicion of assault with intent to commit rape and oral copulation. Benjamin Orr, 21, was arrested after police were called about 9:15 a.m. Sunday to the 500 block of Gayley Avenue to investigate a report of a sexual assault that allegedly occurred the previous night at an off-campus party, according to UCLA Police Department Lt. Scott Scheffler.
Orr, who was arrested at 547 Gayley Ave., was booked into sheriff's custody and was freed after posting $100,000 bail, Scheffler said.
The address is that of the Theta Delta Chi fraternity. The Daily Bruin reports that Orr was the fraternity's 2016-17 president. On Tuesday, the UCLA Interfraternity Council Executive Board and President's Council met and voted to impose "an indefinite ban on events involving alcohol that take place within IFC chapter facilities," according to a statement from the council's executive board.
