Student celebrates return to campus with suspicious liquid

An intoxicated male was found on Jan. 25 at 2:10 a.m. When a Campus Police officer arrived at the scene, the male was sitting on the sidewalk and swaying his upper body side to side. The officer found his breath smelled like alcohol, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, his speech was slurred, he was unable to stand straight up and there was an unknown liquid on the front of his shirt. When the officer asked what the liquid was, the student replied, “I’m not telling anything.”

The officer found that he was only wearing a thin shirt and no protective clothes were in the area, although the temperature was 22 degrees.

The intoxicated student was brought to the lobby of New Residence Hall and Lions EMS was contacted for further assistance.

A male was arrested for trespassing on campus for the second time on Thursday, Jan. 10, in Lot 2 in front of Brower Student Center. He was riding his bike and seemed to be evading the police officer, who followed him onto the Business Building sidewalk from Metzger Drive. After the suspect failed to respond to verbal commands to stop, the officer activated the siren.

The officer asked his name and the suspect identified himself and then said “I know I am not supposed to be here. I am cutting through to get to labor ready,” and “I am going to keep coming here until you police stop harassing me.”

When the officer asked if he was aware that he was trespassing, he responded “Yeah I know and I am going to keep coming here until you guys stop bothering me.”

The suspect was arrested and charged for trespass on Nov. 23, 2007 and Dec. 31, 2007. He has been banned from campus as of Jan. 20, 1998. He was placed under arrest and brought to Campus Police headquarters. He was released at 10:10 a.m.
