JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Officials say the University of Mississippi student from Fort Worth who died when he fell from a tree was drunk when the accident happened.
Lafayette County Coroner Lonnie Weaver says toxicology reports show 18-year-old Bradley Jameson had a blood-alcohol level two times the legal limit allowed for driving.
Ole Miss officials had said following Jameson's death that there was no evidence alcohol or drugs were involved.
He fell out of a tree Saturday outside the Beta Theta Pi house on the campus' Fraternity Row after he apparently climbed it to retrieve a football that had gotten stuck during a late night game of catch.
He fell about 12 feet and hit his head on a concrete patio at about 3:45 a.m. He later died in a Memphis hospital. His family was on campus visiting when Jameson died.
Jameson was a graduate of All Saints' Episcopal School in Fort Worth.
