LSU Police Issue Arrest Warrants For 10 Students Over Fraternity Pledge's Death

"Clark said Gruver's alcohol level was.495 at the time of his death". But one student, 19-year-old Matthew Alexander Naquin, also faces a count of negligent homicide, which is a felony, as well as the hazing count.

Court records indicate Gruver was engaged in what the fraternity called "Bible Study" - a game in which pledges continuously drink alcohol if they err in answering trivia questions about the fraternity.

Gruver, an 18-year-old from Roswell, Georgia, died September 14 in what LSU Police has investigated as a hazing-related death.

Erdogan said that the current trade exchange between the two countries of $800 million (682 million euros) "is not enough" and that it should rapidly grow in the near future.

Matthew Alexander Naquin will be arrested on charges of hazing and negligent homicide while nine additional individuals: Zachary Castillo, Elliot Eaton, Patrick Forde, Sean Paul Gott, Zachary Hall, Ryan Isto, Hudson Kirkpatrick, Sean Pennison and Nicholas Taulli; will be charged with hazing. Two people drove him to a hospital, where he died later that day. After Gruver was found to be still on the couch the next morning, he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Georgia-native had a blood alcohol level that was over six times the legal limit for driving.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office ruled Gruver's death accidental and said it was caused by "acute alcohol intoxication with aspiration". The autopsy found Gruver inhaled vomit and other fluid into his lungs, Clark says.

The Republic of Ireland progressed to the play-offs from the group with a 1-0 win away to Wales in Cardiff. They will not be seeded in the playoffs draw, which takes place on Wednesday (NZT).

Also Wednesday, arrest warrants were issued for 10 people in connection to Gruver's death.

The death has unfolded in the midst of an increased scrutiny on drinking behavior and fraternity culture on college campuses that has been prompted by a few high-profile hazing deaths. Eight are current students at LSU. According to a report in the school's student newspaper, The Daily Reveille, the chapter had been suspended a year earlier as the university investigated a previous complaint about hazing.

Witnesses said they "noticed Gruver was highly intoxicated at some point after midnight and laid him on the couch before leaving for the night", according to the Reveille.

The affidavit also said "several" other interviews indicated that "the pledges were forced to drink in excess", WBRZ-TV reported.
