On Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 2:35 a.m., a Campus Police officer observed a student exit an elevator on the fifth floor of Decker Hall. As the student exited the elevator, he pulled up the zipper of his pants.

When the officer entered the elevator, he noticed what appeared to be urine on the floor. The officer called after the student, who ran down the hallway toward his room.

The student disregarded the officer’s verbal commands and entered his room. When the officer knocked on the door, the student answered it, looking visibly nervous and shaking.

When the officer questioned the student about why he ran down the hall, the student explained that he did not hear the officer’s verbal warnings and said he was nervous because he didn’t want to be blamed for the urine in the elevator.

When questioned further, the student claimed he was not pulling up his zipper when he exited the elevator.

The incident was referred to the office of Residence Life, and Building Services was contacted to clean up the urine.

There is no further information at this time.
