18 fraternity members charged over hazing death of Penn State student

Penn State permanently banned Beta Theta Pi on March 30, accusing it of a "persistent pattern" of excessive drinking, drug use and hazing.

Overnight, Piazza took several other falls including a second one down the basement stairs where he would remain for hours before the fraternity members discovered him in the morning, Parks Miller said.

The panel's blistering presentment described a ritual known as "the gauntlet" in which Beta Theta Pi pledges were required to stop at various alcohol stations, where they guzzled vodka, shotgunned beers, drank from wine bags and played multiple rounds of beer pong.

He says his son's death was the "result of a feeling of entitlement and flagrant disregard" of the law.

All indicators suggested Beta Theta Phi was a model fraternity - the house, privately-owned and situated like all other fraternity houses on private property, was lovely, the subject of a multi-million dollar renovation; both the Beta alumni and the national organization provided strict rules of behavior; and, the brothers had a no alcohol policy which stated that anyone caught drinking would be expelled.

The Beta Theta Pi fraternity in State College, Pennsylvania. Penn State has one of the most aggressive student misconduct policies in the country, and its off-campus policy pertaining to misconduct remains the most vigorous in the Big Ten.

Beta Theta Pi, the fraternity and eighteen of it's brothers will face charges in connection with the death of Timothy J. Piazza.

Barron says it's "numbing" to see that a unsafe atmosphere could occur at a fraternity that prided itself on commitment to each other and the community.

The fraternity brothers communicated through a group messaging system, which showed that the day after the party, Young, the president, instructed another member to clean the basement and get rid of any traces of alcohol.

The grand jury report concluded that "the severity of Timothy Piazza's condition was obvious and noticed by the fraternity brothers and pledges around him that evening".

911 was only called hours later, the report said.

After he apparently fell face-first at the bottom of the steps, four brothers carried his limp body back upstairs, where some poured liquid on him, and another slapped him in the face, the jury said.

Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller plans to disclose details on Friday morning about events surrounding the February 4 death of pledge Timothy Piazza, of Lebanon, New Jersey.

Piazza, 19, of Lebanon, New Jersey died February 4 at Penn State Hershey Medical Center after he fell down stairs at the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house in State College during a party on February 2.

No further stations were captured, but by about 10:31 p.m. the video reportedly showed the pledges returning from the basement showing visible signs of intoxication. He fell onto a stone floor at 5am and was last caught on video after 7am.

Some of the students are scheduled to surrender Friday to be arraigned.

Piazza's death led to a number of changes on campus, including a ban on all social activities involving alcohol for the rest of the semester, monitoring at social events to prevent underage and excessive drinking, no hard liquor at events that allow for alcohol, and probation and immediate revocation of a Greek-letter chapter's status if rules are violated.
