COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The parents of a University of Missouri student from Minnesota are suing a fraternity after their son suffered serious brain injuries during a pledge party.
Authorities say Daniel Santulli's blood alcohol content was more than six times the legal limit for driving on Oct. 20 when he was found unresponsive in a car parked at University Hospital.
The parents' lawsuit says Santulli, who is from Eden Prairie, Minnesota, remains unresponsive with a significant brain injury.
The lawsuit alleges pledges at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity were expected to drink an entire bottle of alcohol as part of a fraternity tradition.
Ron Caudill, the fraternity’s national executive director, said in a statement that the fraternity is reviewing the lawsuit.
