LSU fraternity pledge died during 'Bible study'; 10 brothers arrested

One pledge said Gruver was "made to" take at least 10-12 "pulls" of 190-proof Diesel, while other pledges had to drink less of the hard liquor, according to the report.

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.

The other nine individuals had bonds posted at $5,000.

The arrest warrants paint a despairingly similar story of fraternity hazing - a fraternity pledge event where new recruits are told to drink excessively with fatal consequences.

Fraternity members hazed pledges and made them participate in a drinking game where they had to drink if they answered quiz questions wrong, according to LSU police reports. Clark said Gruver's alcohol level was.495 at the time of his death. The legal blood-alcohol limit for driving in Louisiana is 0.08 percent.
