Unhappy Need help - car not starting

Peeps i need help - my 320i AT is not starting, before it happened my brother was playing sound when he was chilling with his friends. Battery ran low but car started after leaving it off for about 20 minutes. Started the car let it idle while getting ready to drive it - came back about 10 min later and the car had switched itself off. Tried starting the car nothing, it cranks but does not take... Any ideas????

Side note - while the car was idling - my drunken uncle revved the **** out the car... I was really pissed off (this was before it switched off)!!

I have tried boosting the car - nothing!

LOL - Yes I have gas...
The fuel pump is also running, there no warning lights on the dash, the interior lights are shinning bright so the battery is still in tact..
I havent had time to take the car to my mech, but it seems I will have to since I am still baffled and no one seems to be sure what could be wrong.
