TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Another Florida State University fraternity member has been arrested, accused of selling cocaine.

Following an investigation, 22-year-old Daniel Martin was arrested on Tuesday.

FSU officials have confirmed that Martin is a student at the university and a member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, which has been under scrutiny since the death of pledge Andrew Coffey, 20, last week.

While Coffey's death remains under investigation, FSU Police say Martin's arrest is the latest in an ongoing drug investigation on and around campus.

According to arrest documents, in September, a confidential informant met with Martin and purchased cocaine from him.

Warrants were signed for Martin's arrest on Tuesday and he was taken into custody a short time later in the 700 block of Gaines Street.

This is the second cocaine arrest of an FSU fraternity member this week. On Monday, 20-year-old Garrett John Marcy, a member of FSU's Phi Delta Theta fraternity, was arrested for selling and trafficking cocaine.

In the wake of the arrests and the death Andrew Coffey, FSU President John Thrasher announced on Monday that all of the university's fraternities and sororities are being suspended indefinitely.

Martin is being held in the Leon County Detention Facility on $25,000 bond.
