Public Safety officers were called to Kroner Hall on the report of an alcohol violation. Upon arrival, they found a female resident student locked in a bathroom stall. Public Safety talked to the student through the stall asking if she was OK, to which the student replied that she felt ill. Once she was out of the stall, Public Safety was able to determine through the smell of alcohol on her breath and difficulty in managing her balance that she was attempting to fake an illness while she was intoxicated. The student later admitted to consuming alcohol.
An ambulance was notified and emergency personnel decided that she did not need further medical attention. However, the student did make arrangements to go home that night.
The student has been charged with a tier 1 alcohol violation and the matter has been referred to the Office of Community Standards.
