PHOENIX (AP) - The mother of an Arizona State University fraternity pledge who drowned after a night of drinking has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the chapter.

Grace Culolias wants a jury trial to decide punitive and compensatory damages.

Her suit says the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity was grossly negligent in the November 2012 pledge drive.

Authorities say Jack Culolias was kicked out of a Tempe bar at a frat event for being drunk and unruly.

His body was found weeks later in Tempe Town Lake.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office says an autopsy showed the 19-year-old freshman died by accidental drowning and had a blood-alcohol level of 0.28 percent.

The fraternity had its status revoked by ASU last year following a string of student conduction violations.
