Alcohol enema incident leads to internal, criminal investigations at UT
KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- Ten days before a fraternity member reportedly received an alcohol enema that sent him to the hospital, University of Tennessee officials had met with leaders of the Greek community to review rules concerning drinking on campus.
"It's very disconcerting that it happened so soon after that meeting," said W. Timothy Rogers, vice chancellor for student life. "We are a dry campus, but I'm not naive enough to think it won't go on."
Rogers said a trio of investigations by the University of Tennessee Police Department, the Pi Kappa Alpha national office and the UT Office of Student Judicial Affairs are under way into the Sept. 22 incident.
"We will be conducting our own investigation now that the reports are in," Rogers said. "Those who were cited will certainly have their cases reviewed."
