(Newser) – Dozens of Glenn Beck fans who emerged from an event at the University of Central Florida to find their cars gone say they were the victims of a fraternity prank. They followed signs directing them toward free parking, only to later discover that their cars had been towed from a Kappa Sigma parking lot. The 53 Beck fans had to shell out $125 each at the impound lot.

The owner of the tow company says it was his busiest day ever. The Beck fans believe it was definitely a set-up, motivated either by dislike of Beck or greed. "Maybe they have a deal with the tow truck company, or maybe they got kickbacks under the table," one motorist told WFTV. Kappa Sigma members declined to comment.
