Now Louisiana State University Police have officially charged 10 former and current LSU students with hazing, including a student from the Houston area, Nicholas Taulli.

A 20-year-old MA man faces misdemeanor charges along with nine of his fraternity brothers in the Louisiana death of a pledge pressured to recklessly overdrink, reports NECN.

Forde's fellow fraternity brother Matthew Alexander Naquin, 19, of Boerne, Texas, has been charged with negligent homicide in relation to the incident.

ULL Dean of Students Margarita Perez says Theta Xi, Kappa Alpha Order, Sigma Nu and Sigma Alpha Epsilon are the suspended Greek organizations.

Gruver's blood alcohol content was recorded at.495.

Meanwhile, the attacker apparently hid in a nearby apartment before he surrendered and was taken to the hospital. She said officers went around knocking on doors and ushered residents out of the building.

After arrest warrants were issued for the fraternity brothers Wednesday, they turned themselves into authorities. Around 11 a.m. that morning, members found Gruver still on the couch with a weak pulse and couldn't tell if he was breathing.

The night of September 13, fraternity members called a "Bible Study" for pledges in which they lined them up against a wall in the fraternity house, asked them questions about the fraternity, and forced them to drink 190-proof alcohol called "Diesel" each time they answered a question wrong. Two others, Patrick Forde, 20, and Sean Paul Gott, 21, are not enrolled at the university but have connections to the frat, according to NBC.

Hall's attorney, David Bourland, said his 21-year-old client didn't participate in hazing activities or provide anyone with alcohol on the night before Gruver died.

A Penn State fraternity, Beta Theta Pi, and 14 of its members face criminal charges over the death of a pledge who was fatally injured after an alcohol-related hazing ritual in February.
