A bar manager in Philadelphia is livid after a college lacrosse team apparently displayed “absolutely deplorable behaviour” over the weekend.

In an email to The Daily Pennsylvanian, a student newspaper at the University of Pennsylvania, Fado Irish Pub manager Casey Neff alleged a group of 50 people, who were listed on a reservation as the school’s women’s lacrosse team, acted recklessly Saturday.

Neff’s claims include a woman exposing her genitals to cheers from the crowd, marijuana being smoked in the bathroom, intentional breaking of a light fixture, the theft of a liquor bottle and an attempt to steal a six-pack of beer.

“They broke the light fixture, and they literally cheered about it -- ‘yeah!’ -- are you kidding?” Neff wrote in the email.

The cherry on top?

The group, according to Neff, tipped its server less than 4% on a $1,300 tab.

“We have been made aware of the allegations by Fado, and we are deeply concerned about them,” a member of the university’s communications department said in a statement.

“Our coaches and senior staff are meeting with the members of the women’s lacrosse team, and we will continue to thoroughly investigate the allegations around this event.”
