Two students were cited for underage drinking by the university and Lawrence Township Police Department (LTPD) last weekend.
On Friday, Feb. 25, at 12:22 a.m., Public Safety was dispatched to Poyda Hall and met with two female staff members. One of the females said that a student had complained about noise in the building. The staff member found the room where the noise was coming from and was granted access. She observed alcohol in the room.
More alcohol was found after an additional search.
A male commuter student’s erratic driving alerted Public Safety and LTPD to a DWI last weekend.
On Friday, Feb. 25, at 12:57 a.m., Public Safety observed a car traveling south on Alumni Drive. The student had trouble turning onto South Drive.
Public Safety officers and LTPD officers went to assist the student and noticed evidence of what appeared to be a recent accident. Officers spoke with the student and it was determined that he was under the influence of alcohol.
The student was charged with violating the university’s alcohol policy.
The writing was on the wall in the form of graffiti on a New Building stairwell last weekend.
On Saturday, Feb. 26, at 2:45 a.m., Public Safety discovered the graffiti while walking through Ziegler/New Hall. No suspects have been identified.
