Four students have been arrested at Wesleyan University, after a weekend party sent nearly a dozen students to the hospital for suspected drug overdoses. All four students are between the ages of 20 and 21, and have been arrested on multiple counts related to drug possession and sales. All four students have been suspended from Wesleyan pending a formal hearing. Bonds for the four individuals were set between $75,000 and $175,000.
All 11 students had spent at least one full evening hospitalized, and several were expected to be in the hospital through the week. Two of the students who ingested the drug were listed in critical condition as of Monday evening.
Police are currently investigating how so many people overdosed on the drug in one evening, and whether or not there was something wrong with the drugs being sold. According to police molly pills were seized during the arrest, and they will be thoroughly tested.
