UT student’s lawyer claims ‘false’ information released about alcohol enema incident

Alexander P. Broughton, the University of Tennessee student at the center of last month's infamous alcohol enema allegations, insists that he had never heard of "butt chugging" before he woke up in a hospital.

The 20-year-old sophomore was brought to the University of Tennessee Medical Center emergency room in the early morning hours of Sept. 22 unconscious, with a blood-alcohol level of nearly 0.45 percent and a bloody rectum, police accounts state.

According to a UT police report, one of the young men who brought him to the ER — later identified as Broughton's cousin — told an investigator that Broughton and other Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity members had been "butt chugging" wine.
