A student from Arizona State University was left in a wheelchair at the hospital lobby after passing out with a Post-it note stuck on him written by his fraternity brothers. The note said to tell doctors that he had participated in a drinking competition where he drank about 20 shots of tequila.

The Associated Press reported that the 19-year-old was found early Saturday in the lobby of St. Luke's hospital's emergency room. He reportedly had severe alcohol poisong and had passed out. Te AP reported that he started to turn blue before his his fraternity brothers took him to the hospital, said police.

The hospitalized student said to the police that he was part of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and that the drinking game wasn't part of a fraternity sponsored event and just involved a few friends.

Police said that the fraternity brothers initially tried to take the student to one of familie's their homes to seek medical attention, because of fear that they would get in trouble. The AP reported that the student had an extremely high blood-alcohol level of 0.47 percent which is about six times the legal limit for driving.

"Sigma Alpha Epsilon drew headlines last year when another of its members, Jack Culolias, drowned in the Salt River. The 19-year-old was last seen Nov. 30 after being kicked out of a Tempe bar during a fraternity party and was suspected of being drunk. His blood-alcohol level was 0.28 percent, according to an autopsy," reported the AP.

The area has had some issues with students in the recent past. Five people were arrested a few weeks ago after a fraternity brawl which included gunfire and baseball bats and in March two teenage girls were hospitalized after a student threw of bottle of alcohol into a fire pit.
