PSU hazing judge orders trainer Bream to court

From ESPN - August 11, 2017

The judge in the Penn State fraternity hazing case has issued a contempt hearing for assistant athletic director Tim Bream, listed as the Nittany Lions' head football trainer.

Bream served as house manager for the Beta Theta Pi fraternity in 2016 and 2017. He has not been charged in the case.

Bream was not in the courtroom Friday when he was called as a witness by defense attorney Leonard Ambrose. Investigators for the defense said they had tried to serve a subpoena to Bream over a period of months but were unsuccessful and eventually served the order to appear in court through counsel for Penn State.

District Judge Allen Sinclair scheduled a contempt hearing for Bream for the end of the month.

The case has drawn national attention. During a fraternity acceptance party on Feb. 2, 2016, 19-year-old Tim Piazza became drunk and fell during an alcohol-fueled initiation ritual known as "the gauntlet."
