LATEST: LSU police name 10 students to be arrests on hazing charges, one on negligent homicide


ORIGINAL STORY

Some members of LSU's Phi Delta Theta fraternity are expected to be issued arrest warrants and booked into jail today in connection to the death of freshman pledge Maxwell Gruver, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. 

But it remains unclear how many students will be booked and what the specific criminal violations will be.

The arrests are expected to be made by the LSU Police Department. 

Gruver, an 18-year-old from Roswell, Georgia, died Sept. 14 in what LSU Police has investigated as a hazing-related death. Preliminary toxicology reports found high levels of alcohol in his blood stream. The full autopsy report with the cause of death has not yet been released.

Gruver and other Phi Delta Theta pledges received a group text message Sept. 13 that "Bible Study" would take place that night at 10 p.m. at the chapter house, an exercise where pledges were asked questions about the fraternity and forced to drink if they answered incorrectly, according to an LSU Police search warrant filed in court last week.

LSU police said that several other interviews of witnesses "indicated that the pledges were forced to drink in excess."

Phi Delta Theta has since been kicked off LSU's campus, and LSU officials are reviewing policies governing Greek life.
