KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Documents show fraternities at the University of Tennessee appear to have been sanctioned less frequently in the past year, after an alcohol-related incident led to campus-wide reforms.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported it obtained documents from the university showing that while campus police are still finding liquor bottles in basements and empty beer cans on front porches along Fraternity Park, busts for such infractions are becoming less frequent.

University fraternities implemented sweeping reforms follow embarrassments that resulted in two chapters closing.

The one that garnered most attention occurred at the former Pi Kappa Alpha chapter house, where members were found intoxicated after one of them was brought to a hospital emergency room passed out.

Police said a wine enema was the cause of the extremely intoxicated 20-year-old's condition.
