UB student arrested for throwing underage drinking party


A University Heights resident faces charges of throwing a “large party” and serving alcohol to minors, according to a Buffalo police report.

Buffalo police arrested Brandon Ferris, a student in UB’s School of Management and member of Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity, at 1 a.m. at a house on Winspear Avenue Thursday.

Ferris’ charges include two misdemeanors; first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and second-degree criminal nuisance, The Buffalo News cited from a Buffalo police report.

This isn’t Ferris’ only association with the Buffalo police. In October 2016, Ferris and two fellow fraternity brothers stopped an alleged mugger and held him at the scene until police arrived.
