Ten people will be charged in connection to the hazing death of an 18-year-old Louisiana State University fraternity pledge, according to CBS News.
Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Georgia, was found unconscious on a couch at the Phi Delta Theta fraternity house on Sept 14.
The autopsy report found that Gruver’s blood alcohol level was a .495 at the time of death, which is six times the legal limit for driving.
Police believe Gruver may have been forced to drink during an initial ritual/game called ‘Bible Study.’
Bible Study is a ‘game’ in which Phi Delta Theta pledges took a drink if they answered questions about the fraternity incorrectly.
The national office of Phi Delta Theta closed the LSU chapter after Gruver’s death.
