University of Nebraska-Lincoln police responded to the Phi Gamma Delta house on Wednesday night after a report of a vandalism devolved into a fight, according to police. Three teens were detained. 

One Lincoln teenager was arrested and two more were cited and released after a report of a vandalism at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house turned into a fight on Wednesday night, according to University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police. 

Campus police responded to the residence at 1425 R St., commonly known as the Fiji house, after a caller reported an ongoing vandalism. 

UNL Police Assistant Chief Marty Fehringer confirmed to the Journal Star that three teens allegedly vandalized the fraternity house, causing damage to a window and several vehicles.

Fehringer said fraternity members detained the teens until police arrived.  

By then, Fehringer said, the incident had devolved into a fight that involved six to eight people. Once police restored order and conducted interviews, Fehringer said three non-UNL students were detained for their alleged roles in the incident. 

A 17-year-old boy was cited on suspicion of assault on a police officer, the only felony citation issued as a result of the incident.

The teen, whom Fehringer declined to name, was also cited on suspicion of third-degree assault, resisting arrest, failure to comply, trespassing, minor in possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released upon citation but will be referred to Lancaster County Court to be charged as an adult, according to police.
