KNOXVILLE, TN (News Sentinel) -- Connor Buchanan walked into Knoxville City Court on Monday in a suit and tie with hopes of keeping his driver's license after being one of a dozen college students snared by University of Tennessee police investigating a September "butt-chugging" incident.

"I'd like to go into an alcohol assistance program rather than lose my license," the 19-year-old Buchanan said before court began. "I need a car to get around and go to work."

Buchanan is a member of the now disgraced Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity chapter at the University of Tennessee where police said a member almost died from alcohol poisoning.

Buchanan had recently transferred from a college in Michigan and is attending Pellissippi State Community College. He said he went to the Pi Kappa Alpha house on Sept. 22 to meet new people and make friends.
