The now-disbanded LSU fraternity which is being investigated for hazing in the recent death of Maxwell Gruver was suspended for separate hazing violations less than a year ago, according to a report by LSU's newspaper The Daily Reveille. 

Phi Delta Theta was placed on a month-long suspension of all chapter events on Nov. 15, 2016, after allegations that new members were being required to buy chewing tobacco and cigarettes for senior members of the fraternity.

The report also alleges pledges were expected to be available to active members for rides or errands at all times, excluding time in class or when parents were in town. 

"The report stated pledges were called to deliver food and pick up brothers from bars at 3 a.m., and they were 'exhausted all of the time,'" The Daily Reveille reported. 

The chapter suspension banned social activities both on and off campus. It also disallowed communication between newly initiated members and active members outside of approved ritual and chapter meetings at the fraternity house.
