Following the death of LSU fraternity pledge Maxwell Gruver last month, 10 people were arrested Wednesday and are facing hazing charges.

An LSU statement on Wednesday said one of the 10 suspects also faces a negligent homicide charge in the death of 18-year-old Maxwell Gruver, a freshman from Roswell, Georgia, who died Sept. 14 after a night of drinking.

LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said eight of the suspects are LSU students.

Gruver died at a hospital after Phi Delta Theta members found him lying on a couch at the fraternity house and couldn't tell if he was breathing.

A coroner said hospital tests found a "highly elevated" blood-alcohol level in Gruver's body.

Witnesses told police that the fraternity's pledges were forced to drink to excess the night before Gruver's death.
