Eight Former Beta Theta Pi Members to Be Arraigned Tuesday

Eight Former Beta Theta Pi Members to Be Arraigned Tuesday

The grand jury report shows Piazza was one of 14 pledges forced to run the gauntlet the night he fell, consisting of quickly drinking vodka, wine and beer at stations.

Davis went on ABC's Good Morning America to tell what he witnessed the night Timothy Piazza fell down the stairs during a frat party. Davis said that when he first saw Piazza passed out on a couch, others were laughing, saying Piazza had too much to drink.

It wasn't until 10:48 a.m. that one of the brothers finally called 911.

"This was a preventable tragedy", Davis said. "But the public will wonder and they will need to address why it took this death for the university to shut down the chapter whether there was an apparent history", says Glenn Selig, chief strategist at the national PR firm, The Publicity Agency. "And I said, "No, I really do know what I'm talking about".

Piazza tried to get up later but fell backward and hit his head on the wooden floor, the report said.

"Sadly", the dad said, "we're never going to see his smile again except in pictures". "I was told that they had the situation under control and that my help was not needed, and that my opinions were not relevant and not needed.I was told it was all a myth". "I was told I was overreacting, I was insane".

Brendan Young, Daniel Casey, Jonah Neuman, Nick Kubera, Michael Bonatucci, Gary Dibileo, Luke Visser and Joe Sala are each charged with involuntary manslaughter, aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors and unlawful acts relative to liquor.

"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", Barron said. No pleas were entered, and bail was set at $100,000 ROR (release on your own recognizance), the district attorney said. They are prohibited from having alcohol and non-prescription drugs, can not leave their home state without express permission from the judge and must surrender their passports, the district attorney said.

Eight of those 18 face charges of involuntary manslaughter.

According to the 65-page document released by the District Attorney's Office after a months-long grand jury investigation, here's what apparently happened the night of February 2. "But that doesn't mean there's any intent involved in any of this".

The university on March 30 issued a permanent ban on Beta Theta Pi, which was once regarded as a model fraternity, accusing it of a "persistent pattern" of excessive drinking, drug use and hazing. The early findings of that investigation indicated that the behavior of several undergraduate members was in direct contradiction of the International Fraternity's expectations and risk management policies, as well as the International Fraternity's reputation and commitment to character development.

Eighteen members of a now-shuttered Penn State University fraternity and the fraternity itself are facing charges in the death of a student who fell down a flight of steps during an alcohol-fueled pledge night.
