MVA with injury
A female staff member was struck by the spare tire on the back of a vehicle last week.
On Friday, Nov. 12, at 1:15 p.m., a female staff member of the University reported that she had injured her wrist and upper back when she was struck by a vehicle backing out of the main administrative lot.
Another staff member was backing out of the entrance because there was a car in front of her that could not get inside the lot.
A female resident student was found intoxicated and sans clothes in a male resident student’s bed in Hill Hall last weekend.
On Saturday, Nov. 13, at 5:36 a.m., Public Safety received a call from a male staff member about an intoxicated female student.
Officers went to the location specified by the male staff member and found the female student. They called for an ambulance immediately.
The resident of the room stated that he got up to use the bathroom around 5 a.m. and left the door unlocked upon returning to the room. A short time later, he noticed someone entering the room and assumed it was his roommate. It was not.
The Lawrence Township Police Department (LTPD) arrived shortly after and was able to awaken the girl. She was transported to a local hospital for further evaluation. The student was cited by LTPD for underage drinking and charged with violating Rider’s alcohol policy.
Swiper, no swiping
