Court Papers: Student Drank Vodka Bottle In Hazing


Court papers filed in connection with a New York college student's alcohol-related death reveal he drank a 60-ounce bottle of vodka during what college officials say was the hazing of pledges at an unsanctioned fraternity.

The Times Union of Albany reports documents were filed by two students who were expelled from the University at Albany after 19-year-old Trevor Duffy of the Bronx died in November following a night of heavy drinking during a party held by Zeta Beta Tau members at an off-campus home.

The two students want to return to the college. They were among the 24 sanctioned by the university.

The university's investigation concluded Duffy's death was the result of hazing. No one has been arrested. Albany police say their investigation is continuing.
