Bad park job
For one female commuter student, the frustrations of not being able to find a parking spot escalated to unreasonable heights last weekend.
While a Public Safety officer wrote a vehicle a ticket for blocking traffic in front of the Mauer Gym blocking traffic at 11:54 a.m., on Nov. 12, the owner of the vehicle returned and told Public Safety that she needed to unload her car and didn’t know where to park. Public Safety told her that she would still receive the violation. The commuter then became verbally disorderly toward the officer.
Public Safety charged the student with failure to comply, harassment and disorderly conduct.
A female student is the suspect in a golf cart hit-andrun accident that occurred on Saturday, Nov. 12.
The female visitor victim reported the hit-and-run incident to Public Safety at 1:15 p.m., on Saturday. The victim said that as she was walking through the turf field parking lot, a woman in the bleachers told the victim that a golf cart hit the car she was about to enter.
The victim visitor noticed that the front passenger side of her car was damaged. Otherwise, the car was drivable.
Public Safety later identified the driver of the cart. The suspect admitted to hitting the car after accidently pressing the gas instead of the break. The investigation is ongoing.
Bunk bed bruises
The fear that many have of falling out of the top bunk of a bunk bed became a harsh reality for a female visitor of the ZTA sorority house.
Public Safety arrived at the house at 3:58 a.m., on Friday, Nov. 11 and spoke to the witness who said the victim fell from the top bunk.
The victim said that when she fell she hit her nose and mouth and believed her tooth might be loose. The officers offered to call for medical assistance, however, the victim declined further medical attention.
