Alexander P. Broughton, the University of Tennessee student at the center of last month’s infamous alcohol enema incident, said today he had never heard of “butt-chugging” before he woke up in hospital.

Broughton, 20, arrived at the University of Tennessee Medical Center emergency room the morning of Sept. 22 unconscious with an injured rectum and a blood-alcohol level of nearly .45, more than five times the legal limit.
