During the Katrina crisis, with New Orleans under water and residents fleeing across the nation, two men showed up on the University of Tennessee campus in Knoxville with student identification from Tulane in New Orleans.Isn’t that was special!
The Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity opened its doors and its heart.
"They had a very credible stories. They presented themselves as true brothers of this fraternity," said Patrick Davis, a member of the Lamda Chi chapter.
However, they were far from fraternity brothers.
Zacharie Arabie, 22, and Steven Ridge, 31, were two enterprising inmates at a Louisiana prison who had escaped using a popsicle stick to pick a cell-door lock.
They wound up in Knoxville, attending fraternity parties, and even dating co-eds.
