Delta Tau Delta Charged With Furnishing Alcohol To Minors

Furnishing charges were filed Monday against the Delta Tau Delta fraternity, who allegedly gave alcohol to underage student Brendan Soh on Thursday, September 28. Soh, who was suspected of drinking alcohol at the fraternity, was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious on Calder Way that night.

According to the criminal complaint against DTD, police found Soh unconscious but breathing on Calder Way when they responded to a report at 1:37 a.m. that Thursday. He was then transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center.

Witnesses said he was attempting to jump a fence when his leg got caught and he fell; this was later confirmed by downtown cameras, which show Soh running through the Garner Street parking lot until he failed to jump over the small chain fence between the lot and Calder Way. Soh remained unconscious on Calder until police and emergency medical services arrived.

Medical records showed Soh had alcohol in his system, and both he and his roommate Jack Turner were interviewed. The two 18-year-olds said they were drinking at Delta Tau Delta fraternity that night.

The university placed DTD on interim suspension earlier this month to investigate the fraternity’s potential involvement with the Soh’s injuries. It currently remains suspended on this interim basis, so Penn State likely hasn’t yet completed its own student conduct investigation.
