A fraternity at the University of Central Florida was suspended because of a LeBron James-themed stunt by two pledges that led to the evacuation of a building on campus Wednesday, officials said. According to the university, two Sigma Pi fraternity pledges entered a classroom in the Business Administration 1 building about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Before class began, one of the pledges, wearing a Miami Heat-era Lebron James jersey, tossed white powder in the air. As he threw the powder — which turned out to be baby formula — the pledge yelled that he was “taking his talents to South Beach,” according to a UCF student conduct report. James, a four-time NBA MVP, sometimes throws chalk in the air as part of his pre-game ritual. He also used similar language in announcing that he was leaving the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Miami Heat in 2010.
