Campus Police officers were dispatched to Decker Hall at 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 14 after receiving a report of an intoxicated male. Upon arrival they met with two female victims, who claimed that at 4:20 a.m. the male in question entered their room and sat on a chair. He then urinated on the floor and afterward went to the bathroom. While he was in the bathroom, the victims contacted their Community Advisors, who called Campus Police.

Campus Police officers eventually coaxed the suspect into leaving the bathroom, though he was highly resistant. After exiting, the officers noted that his speech was slurred and that he swayed as he walked. The suspect admitted that he had been drinking and the officers issued him a summons for underage possession of alcoholic beverages.


While on vehicle patrol on Sunday afternoon, Feb. 11, a Campus Police officer spotted an improperly parked 1993 Chrysler Contour. The officer performed a registration check and it was revealed that the owner of the vehicle had an active arrest warrant out of Ewing. The vehicle started to move at this point, and the officer performed a stop in front of the Lot 9 parking garage.

Afterward, the female driver of the car exited the vehicle and approached the police car. The officer ordered her to get back in her car over his loudspeaker several times before she complied. Afterward, the officer approached her car and asked for her credentials, which she did not have. She only gave her name and was irate as she did so.

The officer took her to Campus Police headquarters, where a check revealed that she had given a false name to the officer and that she had active warrants out of Hopewell and Trenton, in addition to Ewing. The woman was charged with giving false information to a law enforcement officer and disorderly conduct. She was turned over to the Hopewell Police Department.
