TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A Florida State University student is behind bars, accused of selling and trafficking cocaine.

Following an investigation, 20-year-old Garrett John Marcy was arrested on Monday.

FSU officials have confirmed that Marcy is a student at the university and a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.

According to arrest documents, in October, a confidential informant purchased more 28 grams of cocaine from Marcy at a location on Heritage Grove Circle.

Warrants were signed for Marcy's arrest on Monday.

In the wake of the arrest and the death of an FSU fraternity pledge last week, FSU President John Thrasher announced on Monday that all of the university's fraternities and sororities are being suspended indefinitely.

The national chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity released the following statement in response to Marcy's arrest:

"Phi Delta Theta has been made aware of an arrest involving a former member of its Florida Gamma chapter at Florida State University for drug trafficking charges. Since learning of the arrest, the individual has been separated from membership. Additionally, the chapter leadership has committed to work with local authorities in any additional investigation regarding this matter.

"Following the conclusion of any further investigation, the Fraternity will revisit its findings to take any final action. As a values-based organization, anyone who is found to have violated those values or the organization’s policies will be held accountable."

Marcy is being held in the Leon County Detention Facility on $75,000 bond.
