On the night of Tuesday, Sept. 5, Ewing Township Police broke up a party with the help of Campus Police.

Approximately 150 to 200 people were at the party. Seven people were charged with criminal offenses.

On the way back from that party, at approximately 12:20 a.m., Campus Police officers spotted a man walking on the road in the area of Green Lane and Browning Avenue Extension carrying and attempting to hide an unidentified object in his hand.

After stopping the man, the officers asked him what he was holding, and the man said, “A beer.”

The man also said that he was 20 years old and not carrying any identification. The officers proceeded to inform the man that it is illegal to carry an open alcoholic beverage in public and charged the man with underage consumption of alcohol.

There is no further information at this time.


On Saturday, Sept. 2, at approximately 12:35 a.m., Campus Police was dispatched to Townhouses West on the report of a sick person.

Upon arrival, officers found a student sitting on a bench, vomiting.

When asked if he was OK, the student said, “I’m fine, but that’s not my vomit,” and proceeded to wipe vomit off of his chin.

At this point, the officers detected alcohol on the student’s breath, and contacted ResLife and Lions’ EMS staff.

When asked for identification, the student refused to give his full name and claimed that he did not have his wallet.

When asked again, the student sat still for about a minute before producing his wallet. The student dropped the wallet twice while trying to get his license out and dropped his license twice before handing it to the officer.

The student said that he had consumed five to six Keystone Lights in front of his building by himself.

When the officer asked the student where the cans were, the student indicated the second floor of the building. Though the student refused to tell the officer whom he had been drinking with at first, he eventually gave the officer his friend’s name.

The officer went up to the second floor and introduced himself to the other student, who confirmed that he had been drinking with the first student and that he was 20 years old.

The first student, who was 21, was transported to the hospital and charged with obstructing the administration of a law or government function, while the second student was charged with underage consumption of alcohol and sent back to his room.


Campus Police officers were dispatched to the first floor of New Residence Hall on Sunday, Sept. 3, at about 8:20 p.m. for a criminal mischief complaint.

They were told upon arrival that several areas of the building were tagged by graffiti sometime between Sept. 1 at 8 p.m. and the time the call was made. The officers photographed the graffiti in multiple locations, all appearing to be from the same source, and told the caller to contact Building Services to clean it up.

There is no further information at this time.


While on patrol at 1:35 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 2, Campus Police spotted a student stumbling on the side of the road. The officers asked if he was OK, to which the student responded, “I’m fine,” and proceeded to lose his balance again. The officer detected alcohol on his breath and told the student to sit down. The student said that he had been drinking Bud Light at the track house.

When asked how many Bud Lights he had consumed, the student said two or three. When asked by EMS staff, he said four or five. When asked a final time by ResLife staff, the student responded that he’d had six or seven.

The student was charged with underage possession of alcoholic beverages.
