While conducting room safety inspections during the scheduled drill, the CAs discovered controlled dangerous substances and drug paraphernalia, according to Campus Police. The residents were not in the room when the safety inspection took place, police said. Campus Police entered the room and saw a one-liter plastic bottle partially filled with water created in a similar fashion to a water smoking bong. Across the desk in plain view was an herb grinder containing green vegetation, believed to be marijuana, police said. Next to that was a Ball mason jar containing green vegetation. The CAs also found a 16-ounce plastic bottle with green vegetation in plain view on top of a desk by the window. No criminal charges were filed as the search was conducted without a warrant, according to police.

  On Sunday, Feb. 7, Campus Police responded to a call about an intoxicated individual in Wolfe Hall at 1:20 a.m., according to police reports.

  Campus Police were dispatched to Norsworthy Hall on Monday, Feb. 8, after receiving a call about an intoxicated person. At 1:35 a.m., police arrived on-scene and discovered that the hallway floor outside of a student’s dorm room was covered with urine, Campus Police said. Police opened the unsecured door and entered the room. The floor inside the room was covered with urine as well, according to reports. Officers found a male student lying face down on his roommate’s bed. Vomit covered the corner of the mattress by his head and the floor below him, according to police. The student slowly responded to officers calling his name and proceeded to admit he had consumed beer alone in his room. He was unable to provide more information, according to police. When the student spoke, the officer noted the smell of alcohol emanating from his breath. TCNJ EMS arrived and instructed the student to sit up. They, too, had difficulty obtaining personal information due to the level of intoxication, police said. TCNJ EMS determined he could stay in his room. Ewing Township EMS arrived, but left when the student refused transportation to the hospital. A summons was issued, police said.
