10 arrested at LSU in drinking death of Georgia teen

10 arrested at LSU in drinking death of Georgia teen”

According to the reports filed in court, "Bible Study" meant Phi Delta Theta pledges had to drink if they incorrectly answered questions about the fraternity during a gathering the night before 18-year-old Gruver died.

One fraternity member said he told Naquin and another member to "cut it out" because it was "getting out of hand".

Others found Gruver motionless and barely breathing around 9 a.m.

Following the completion of a full autopsy by Dr. William "Beau" Clark of the Coroner's Office, Gruver's "manner of death is an accident".

LSUPD has issued arrest warrants for 10 individuals following an investigation into the Phi Delta Theta fraternity after the death of freshman Maxwell Gruver.

The night of September 13, fraternity members called a "Bible Study" for pledges in which they lined them up against a wall in the fraternity house, asked them questions about the fraternity, and forced them to drink 190-proof alcohol called "Diesel" each time they answered a question wrong.

"The LSU Police Department has spoken with the Gruver family all through the examination procedure, and the college has likewise been in contact with them in regards to the present captures", LSU's announcement says.

"Cause of death is acute alcohol intoxication with aspiration", said Dr. Clark in the release.

"Let's just wait until the evidence comes in", he said.

The fraternity's national office said it closed the chapter after Gruver's death. All booked for misdemeanor hazing counts exclusively include Sean-Paul Gott, 21, of Lafayette; Elliot Eaton, 20, of New Orleans; Patrick Forde, 20, of Westwood, Massachusetts; Sean Pennison*, 21, of Mandeville; Nicholas Taulli, 19, of Cypress, Texas; Zachary Hall, 21, of Charlotte, North Carolina; Zachary Castillo, 19, of Terrytown; Kirkpatrick, 19, of Baton Rouge; and Ryan Isto, 18, of Baton Rouge, according to the records.

Ballard said nearly all the people listed in the warrants have contacted LSUPD.

Hall's attorney, David Bourland, said his 21-year-old client didn't participate in hazing activities or provide anyone with alcohol on the night before Gruver died.

"But my client did not violate any law or code of conduct at LSU", Bourland added.

Investigators are studying text messages sent and received by the fraternity members and pledges, have learned of possible videos, and have seized a duffel bag filled with beer cans, bottles of liquor, a glass smoking pipe and a "pledge test", according to search warrant requests and results.

Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards solicited pioneers from the state's advanced education framework to survey their grounds approaches on right of passage, liquor and medications following Gruver's demise.

Ten current and former members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity are facing charges in connection with Gruver's death.
