Timothy Piazza, Penn State Sophomore, died back in February after succumbing to injuries received from a fraternity hazing party called the "Gauntlet". The party was thrown by Beta Theta Pi fraternity and 18 of those frat members will be facing charges. The "Gauntlet" made pledges drink numerous alcoholic beverages within a short time period at several different drinking stations. 19-year-old Piazza was one of the pledges who after consuming a life-threatening amount of alcohol fell down a flight a stairs and died two days after the incident occurred. The 850 plus charges being faced range from involuntary manslaughter to assault and giving alcohol to minors.
