Timothy Piazza was a 19-year-old student at Penn State University who was pledging Beta Theta Pi.
While he was at a fraternity party, he was put through “The Gauntlet,” a drinking game during which fraternity brothers force pledges to drink alcohol at different “stations” of the party.
Piazza was given at least 18 drinks within a 90 minute period. Later that night, Piazza fell down some stairs and was badly injured. His fraternity brothers didn’t call 911 for nearly 12 hours.
