Students, experts recoil at alcohol enema case

Before an unruly Tennessee party ended with a student hospitalized for a dangerously high blood alcohol level, most people had probably never heard of alcohol enemas. Thanks to the drunken exploits of a fraternity at the University of Tennessee, the bizarre way of getting drunk is giving parents, administrators and health care workers a new fear. When 20-year-old Alexander "Xander" Broughton was delivered to the hospital after midnight on Sept. 22, his blood alcohol level was nearly six times the intoxication that defines drunken driving in the state. Broughton denied participating in an alcohol enema, but police concluded otherwise from evidence they found at the frat house, including boxes of Franzia Sunset Blush wine. The university has shuttered the fraternity until at least 2015.
