Thousand to new details about that tragic fraternity death at lsu. Ten young men are facing charges for hazing after a pledge died at a party last month. His blood alcohol level was a shocking 0.495. ABC's Steve osunsami is there at the school in Baton Rouge. Good morning, Steve. Reporter: Good morning, robin. This is the fraternity house where that pledge died. We're learning more about what happened that night. Police say that the evening began with the older pledges pelting the younger ones with mustard and hot sauce and then it went terribly downhill from there. These are the pictures this morning that authorities want students here to remember, the brothers of phi delta theta being led away in handscuffs after the hazing death of a freshman pledge. Police gave them till noon Wednesday to turn themselves in. This is a young man who lost his life. We had a promising future for him. This should not happen under any circumstance. Reporter: Charges their charges attorneys argue didn't include a parade in front of cameras. Matthew Naquin is facing charges that could send him away for five years. I want to make sure the parents of Mr. And Mrs. Gruver know what happened to their son. Reporter: Max Gruver died on September 13th after he and others were invited to a bible study where they were asked questions about the fraternity and were forced to drink 190 proof grain alcohol when they got answers wrong. Witnesses tell police Naquin never liked Gruver and wanted him cut because he was always late forcing him to drink after he made mistakes. A coroner's report says his blood alcohol level was 0.495. Styx times past the legal driving limit and past the point where death is possible. For a 180 pound, about 26 drinks in three hours. Tragic loss in the case. Reporter: This morning, phi delta theta says it wants authorities to prosecute those responsible to the fullest extent of the law. Gruver's mother took her pain to Facebook writing #stopthehazing. My son is dead now. You brothers will have to live with it every day for the rest of your lives. The national organization of this fraternity is speaking out this morning saying that it supports the police in their efforts here. Robin. Got to agree with the mother there. Stop the hazing, Steve, thank you. My goodness. 0.495. That is crazy.
