Two Campus Police officers were conducting interviews with residents in a common area of a unit of Townhouses West on Sunday, April 1 at 2:30 a.m. as part of a call for medical assistance when a man entered the room and yelled at the officers to stop interrogating people.
One of the officers escorted him outside and had him sit on a bench, but he continued to be loud and began to yell obscenities at the officers. As he did so, the officers detected the smell of alcohol on his breath. They told him to calm down and answer their questions, but he continued to use abusive language.
An officer attempted to handcuff him, but the man resisted and other officers had to assist. When he was placed in the back of a police car, he kicked at the door and an officer warned him to stop.
After he was brought into Campus Police headquarters, he remained combative and was taken to the station holding area and handcuffed to a bench. As the officers went about their normal operations, he continued yelling loudly and being disruptive.
The man was charged with underage consumption of alcoholic beverages, obstruction of the administration of law and disorderly conduct.
Three Campus Police officers were dispatched to a Travers Hall elevator lobby on Sunday, March 25 at 12:15 a.m. after a report of a fight. Upon arrival, they saw two men standing on opposite ends of the lobby with blood on their clothes. The officers called Lions’ EMS to treat their injuries.
One of the officers approached one of the men to find out what happened and to determine his condition. The officer saw that his nose was swollen and bloody and that it appeared to be broken.
The man said he and the other man were on Facebook trading messages that he felt became personal and offensive. Soon the other man entered his room and they began to fight.
Another officer talked to the other man. He said he had read comments about himself on Facebook that he didn’t appreciate. Unlike the other man, he only had some bruising and swelling on his face.
Lions’ EMS arrived and after assessing the injuries of the two men, called an ambulance.
The man who started the fight was issued a summons for disorderly conduct.
A Campus Police officer was dispatched to the Brower Student Center at 7 p.m. on Monday, March 26 after a report of a suspicious person. The woman who called Campus Police described him as a tall, slender white male wearing a black puffy jacket and a knit cap and holding a pink Victoria’s Secret Bag.
The officer approached him, told him that he matched the description of a suspicious person and asked for identification. The officer also asked the man what his purpose on campus was. While verifying his identification and address, Campus Police found that he had an active warrant from Pemberton. The officer placed him under arrest.
The man has since been identified and charged for a previous harassment case on campus.
