Penn State athletic trainer ordered to appear at hazing death hearing

Penn State fraternity member charged with student's death deleted video, detective says

Penn State fraternity member charged with student's death deleted video, detective says

The defense says they attempted to serve the Beta Theta Pi Residential House Advisor and Penn State Assistant Athletic Director, Tim Bream, with a subpoena through a private investigator.

The fifth day of testimony in the preliminary hearing for 19 parties charged in the death of Penn State student Timothy Piazza was marked by more questions about the deleted video footage from the basement of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity house.

However, Bream did not show up at the Centre County Court in Bellefonte on Friday after failed attempts by the brothers' attorneys to subpoena him, prompting Judge Allen Sinclair to schedule a contempt of court hearing for Bream on August 30.

The preliminary hearing has been recessed until that date.

Kelly said Bream's role brings the charges brought against Heimer into question, while Parks Miller countered it merely means Bream could face charges if there is evidence to support the allegations, pennlive reported. Ten face misdemeanors like hazing, furnishing alcohol to minors, or reckless endangerment.

Beta Theta Pi and 18 of its members have been charged in connection with Piazza's death.

The judge will decide if prosecutors have enough evidence for the case to go to trial.

Bream said in a brief email to The Associated Press that he won't comment or be interviewed, following his attorney's advice.

Ambrose argued that Bream was aware of the subpoena and avoided it.

Evan Kelly, representing defendant Craig Heimer, said his client expected Bream to be supervising the night's activities and had approved The Gauntlet.

Parks Miller shot down that claim, stating that the investigation into the deleted footage is a new investigation and would result in new charges.
