Ten booked for hazing in LSU fraternity death

Ten booked for hazing in LSU fraternity death

In Louisiana, a level of.08 qualifies as legally drunk.

Last month, LSU President F. King Alexander said that the 18-year-old's death is being investigated as a "potential hazing incident".

Ten young men were arrested Wednesday on hazing charges.

Another Phi Delta Theta pledge also told police that Naquin "forced" Gruver drink because he was having trouble reciting the Greek alphabet during "Bible Study", a drinking game or ritual that tested pledges' knowledge of the fraternity.

One Louisiana State University student is charged with negligent homicide and nine others are charged with hazing.

David Bourland says his client, Zachary Hall, of Charlotte, North Carolina, didn't break any laws or LSU codes of conduct. Hall, a junior who lived at the fraternity house, is in a "deep depression" over his friend's death, his attorney said.

A Penn State fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, and 14 of its members face criminal charges over the death of a pledge who was fatally injured after an alcohol-related hazing ritual in February. But one student, 19-year-old Matthew Alexander Naquin, also faces a count of negligent homicide, which is a felony, as well as the hazing count.

According to anonymous sources, Weinstein settled with at least eight different women over the years. Weinstein apologized for his behaviour and acknowledged that it had "caused a lot of pain".

All 10 suspects are affiliated with the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, but two are not now enrolled at the school. The legal blood-alcohol limit for driving in Louisiana is 0.08 per cent.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office ruled Gruver's death accidental and said it was caused by "acute alcohol intoxication with aspiration". Clark says an autopsy found Gruver inhaled vomit and other fluid into his lungs.

In announcing Wednesday's arrest warrants, LSU issued a statement saying, "The LSU Police Department has communicated with the Gruver family throughout the investigation process, and the university has also been in touch with them regarding today's arrests". Other individuals also could face charges in the case, Moore added.

University spokesman Ernie Ballard told The Associated Press that the students turned themselves in to LSU police on Wednesday.

Gruver was taken to a hospital from the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house in September. "Clark said Gruver's alcohol level was.495 at the time of his death".

A pledge member told police he thought Naquin and another member, Sean Paul Gott, were going hard on Gruver because he was late for events and noted that he thought Naquin and Gott were "taking it too far", the affidavit said.
