Tennessee Fraternity Denies Buttchugging Charge in Press Conference That Really Happened

Published on: October 02, 2012 | Written by: Clay Travis

Last week news broke that a University of Tennessee fraternity member had been hospitalized after he buttchugged wine.

Today the entire fraternity stood behind their attorney to deny the buttchugging allegation.

I'd like to pick my favorite part of this video, but the entire video is a complete comedy pyramid. The attorney really does deny that the alleged buttchugger is gay and they really did have the press conference in the center of campus.

The lecture to the media is priceless.

Actually, the entire press conference is outstanding.

Just watch.

Seriously, you must watch this.

Just when you think things can't get even more ridiculous, here comes an extended version of the press conference.

Skip ahead to the eight minute mark in this video.

It's simply amazing.

(You can also just watch the press conference again, which is also amazing). 

Also, CNN now has the buttchugging press conference on the front page of its website.

Every lawyer in Knoxville is praying this case goes to trial.

In the meantime, here is the alleged buttchugger's initial story to police. You can read the entire police report here, but be forewarned, it's kind of amazing. Especially the part when the fraternity president is contacted about the buttchugging and rather than answer questions simply begins reciting the fraternity bylaws.

Now, as if this story can't get any weirder, the ButtChugger is comparing his story to that of "The Wizard of Oz" in a recently released statement. You have to read this.

But in case you don't, this is my favorite part.

Broughton ably and stirringly writes, "Dorothy, we are not in Kansas, anymore. We are at Tennessee at the University of Tennessee where lies trump the truth, and the lives of young people such as myself are sacraficed to the alter of the Volunteer statue. There is another analogy to "The Wizard of Oz" and that is to "follow the yellow brick road, and that road leads straight to Andy Holt Tower, the main administrative offices at the University of Tennessee."
