Police Air UI Drinking Death Details

According to Moscow Assistant Police Chief David Duke, Miller and a group of friends started drinking about 7 p.m. Friday at C.J.’s. The group took advantage of the establishment’s 7-11 deal, where consumers can drink from a keg cup for $6 with unlimited refills from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The group left about 11:30 p.m. and went to a private residence, where they continued playing drinking games until 2 a.m., Duke said. “At 2 a.m., he began passing out,” Duke said. “His friends kept checking on him until around 4:30 a.m., when they all went to sleep.” Around 8 a.m. Saturday, Miller was found unresponsive and transported via ambulance to Gritman Medical Center in Moscow, where he was later pronounced dead/Lianna Shepherd, UI Argonaut.

Question: How many of you learned about this story and thought (after considering your high school or college days): There but for the grace of God go I?
