In brief: Complications

Yes he could. Excessive alcohol use including binge drinking can be dangerous to an epileptic.
Alcohol in itself could provoke a seizure as could withdrawal. Also, there is a high likelihood that noncompliance with anti-seizure meds could occur if one is sick or hungover. Alcohol can also increase your risk of side effects with anti-seizure medication.
