LSU Student Dies Following Hazing Ritual

Ten men associated with a Louisiana State University fraternity were arrested Wednesday in connection with the hazing death of an 18-year-old pledge forced to drink massive amounts of alcohol. A police report said Maxwell Gruver was instructed by more senior members of LSU's Phi Delta Theta to repeatedly chug 190-proof Diesel liquor during a Sept 13 hazing ritual called Bible Study, during which pledges are quizzed on fraternity facts.
