The complaint stated, “Subsequently, hospital personnel found Plaintiff BRENNAN unconscious, vomiting and not protecting his airway. Plaintiff BRENNAN was placed on life support, intubated and was given a 1 % chance of survival by treating physicians due to his grave condition and Blood Alcohol Content Level of .489 which was recorded at some point in time long after BRENNAN had stopped consuming alcohol. Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC was also found in his system,” per Fox News.

Brennan is now suing the national office of the Kappa Sigma fraternity in Charlottesville, Virginia, the San Diego State chapter and nine people who were part of it at that time. The San Diego chapter was disbanded by the state in 2020 due to a number of allegations of hazing and forcing people to drink alcohol. His lawyer James Frantz told ABC7, “He can’t work, and we don’t know if he’ll be able to. He can’t go back to school now. All those types of damages, and all the emotional distress damages he will suffer.”

Frantz said, “There was a 750 ml bottle of Captain Morgan rum. He was instructed, he was commanded to drink it all. And, they provided tobacco and marijuana, and he was supposed to consume that as well.”
