American University is certainly not known for their Greek life or party scene but that may have just changed thanks to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon chapter putting them on the damn map.
A wild off-campus party hosted by the SAEs earlier in the semester got rather out of hand when local police showed up, breathalyzers in hand, ready to shut down the event. Rather than sticking to status quo and finding the drunkest students there to bust and subsequently handing out a hefty fine to the residents, officers found themselves quite puzzled when their breathalyzers got a reading before anybody even blew into them.

Police say there was so much alcohol being consumed at a college fraternity party in Maryland the air inside the house registered a .01 on a Breathalyzer.
Officers broke up the party at a house in Bethesda last month.
They say eight people locked themselves in a bathroom while another person jumped out of a second story window in an effort to avoid officers.
I didn’t even think it was possible for there to be detectable amounts of alcohol in stagnant air without people dying. These guys deserve a scholarship to MIT’s school of chemistry for their findings, not criminal offenses.
Pour some out for these guys this weekend. With a combined 126 charges and over $300k in fines, it’s a safe bet the six hosts won’t have much of a life any time soon. .
