LSU fraternity member accused of fatally hazing pledge from Charlotte

Student dies after brutal drinking ritual-10 arrests

(WWL.com) Four fraternities at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have been suspended in the wake of LSU Phi Delta Theta fraternity pledge Maxwell Gruver's death.

Forde's fellow fraternity brother Matthew Alexander Naquin, 19, of Boerne, Texas, has been charged with negligent homicide in relation to the incident. Naquin reportedly wanted to cut Gruver from the pledge list.

Phi Delta Theta said the suspects have been removed from the fraternity.

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

Starbucks Corporation (SBUX) Shares Bought by First Trust Advisors LP
On average, equities analysts predict that Starbucks Corporation will post $2.06 earnings per share for the current fiscal year. Among 13 analysts covering Expeditors International of Washington ( NASDAQ:EXPD ), 3 have Buy rating, 2 Sell and 8 Hold.

Witnesses told police that the fraternity's pledges were forced to drink to excess on the night before Gruver's death, during a game or initiation ritual called "Bible Study" that required pledges to drink if they incorrectly answered questions about the fraternity. The fraternities will not be allowed to hold chapter-affiliated events during the suspension.

While most of the pledges at that night's "Bible Study" were only told to drink three or four "pulls" - or three-to-five second swigs - of the alcohol, Gruver was told to drink 10-12 "pulls".

Gruver was found unresponsive at the fraternity house in September. Sophomore Tim Piazza of Lebanon, New Jersey, became highly intoxicated and later fell several times, including down a long set of basement steps, suffering severe head and abdominal injuries that led to his death two days later.
