Penn State football athletic trainer Tim Bream entered the Centre County courthouse on Wednesday morning.
Bream was scheduled for an 8:30 a.m. contempt hearing in connection with the ongoing criminal case against fraternity Beta Theta Pi’s Alpha Upsilon chapter and 18 of its members over the death of Penn State student Timothy Piazza after a fall at a pledge party in February.
In addition to being the football team’s head trainer and an assistant athletic director of athletic training services, Bream is also the fraternity’s adviser and lived at the Burrowes Street house where the party occurred, and where Piazza went for 12 hours without emergency help after falling down basement stairs, according to police.
Piazza died two days later of internal bleeding and brain injuries.

District Judge Allen Sinclair scheduled the contempt hearing after problems serving Bream with a subpoena to testify at the criminal preliminary hearing.
Those hearings are slated to continue through Friday.
