Student Hospitalized from Alcohol Enema

University of Tennesse students. So as I ponder the stupid things I did in college, in terms of consuming alcohol, I realized I did some pretty stupid stuff. And I know that drinking games persist on college campuses, beer pong, quarters, you know.  And college kids generally speaking understand that there are adverse consequences to too much alcohol consumption, a real problem on campuses. But to send  your self to the hospital and almost die? At a little frat party on the University of Tennessee’s Campus drinking got out of hand. As the Associated Press’s Erik Schelzig reports an unruly frat party took drinking to a whole nother’ level. 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 Alexander “Xander” Broughton, 20, was delivered to the hospital after midnight on Sept. 22, his blood alcohol level was measured at 0.448 percent — nearly six times the intoxication that defines drunken driving in the state. Injuries to his rectum led hospital officials to fear he had been sodomized. Police documents show that when an officer interviewed a fellow fraternity member about what happened, the student said the injuries had been caused by an alcohol enema.

Alcohol enemas have been the punch lines of YouTube videos, a stunt in a “Jackass” movie and a song by the punk band NOFX called “Party Enema.” But Corey Slovis, chairman of department of emergency medicine and Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said actually going through with the deed can have severe consequences.

“It’s something that offers no advantages, while at the same time risking someone’s life,” he said.

So now as I ready my son to go off and participate in the “college experience” I have more to worry about? And I thought getting good grades was my biggest problem.
