On Nov. 13 at 3:10 a.m., Campus Police was called to the seventh floor of Wolfe Hall on a report of a medical emergency.

Upon arrival, the first floor Community Advisor informed an officer of a resident acting in an aggressive manner. The officer checked the floor but found no such activity.

Upon returning to the top floor, the officer observed a group of students running down the stairwell, being chased in an aggressive manner by a man yelling, “Get the fuck out of here! I will kick your fucking ass!” The officer separated the man from the group and tried to calm him down.

The man then told the officer “Don’t you put your hands on me! I’m a fucking Marine! Don’t put your hands on me!” The officer suspected alcohol or drug use and attempted to place the student under arrest. The man would not comply and acted aggressively toward the officer, who then sprayed the student with pepper spray.

The student ran for the stairwell but was caught by officers and taken into custody.

During transport, the suspect told officers, “You’re a pussy and when you take these cuffs off I’m going to kill you.” He objected to treatment to neutralize the pepper spray and threatened to kill the officers who read him his rights.

The suspect, who was handcuffed to the holding bench while the officers processed his arrest documents, proceeded to kick and damage nearby property while he waited.

He was then placed in hand/leg restraints and transported by Pennington EMS to Capital Health Services, where he was restrained by hospital personnel and treated.

There is no further information at this time.

On Nov. 5 at 7:00 a.m., Campus Police received a report that two individuals were in the basement of the Roscoe L. West Library when it opened.

An employee of Building Services was turning on the lights in the basement when a stocky white female with red hair ran by her wearing a plaid poncho.

The employee searched the basement further and found two students, a male and a female, walking around. The man was holding a 750mL bottle of Beefeaters Dry Gin.

The two were asked to sit and wait while the staff contacted Campus Police.

Upon questioning, the man said the bottle, which was full, was a birthday gift and had been consumed the night before. The man was also carrying a pillow and blanket in his backpack.

The woman told police she fell asleep in the library and did not consume any alcohol.

The two students were taken to Campus Police Headquarters and questioned further.

The man was issued a summons for underage drinking in a public place, and both were released.

The two students did not identify the mysterious woman in the plaid poncho.

There is no further information at this time.

On Nov. 3 at 3:40 p.m., officers were called to Townhouses East on a report of an argument in progress.

Residential staff was called to the scene, and the two women were left in the custody of Residential Life staff members. There is no further information at this time.

On Nov. 6 at 4:25 a.m. officers were called to Cromwell Hall on a report of criminal mischief. The victim claimed he woke up and found his roommate next to his bed, urinating under his desk and on his computer.

The suspect was told to clean up his urine, documented and referred to an ADEP counselor.
