Down the drain
While most students would choose to wear a T-shirt, some thought it would be better to flush a few down the toilet.
On April 1, at 2:05 p.m., Public Safety was called to the outer fields warehouse on the report of a backup in the sewage system. A male staff member told the officers that raw sewage was coming up from the ground by the warehouse. Public Safety called Facilities who inspected the sewage system and found that T-shirts had been clogging the system. Facilities has since taken care of the problem.
An investigation of the flushed T-shirts is ongoing. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to call Public Safety at x5029.
Public Safety arrived at the Bart Luedeke Center (BLC) on Thursday, March 29, at 10:42 a.m., after receiving a call that a female visitor had fainted.
The officers first observed the woman lying on the floor of the BLC, but she was alert and able to respond to questions. The visitor said that she remembered walking toward the trashcan but didn’t remember falling; she believed she might have passed out.
Public Safety called an ambulance and she was transported to a nearby hospital for further evaluation and treatment.
On March 29, Public Safety received information of an off-campus incident that ocurred on February 21, in which a male resident student was found with a device associated with smoking marijuana.
While on patrol, Lawrence Township police officers noticed a vehicle had equipment violations and pulled the vehicle over. While the male student began to produce the correct documentation, a pipe that is commonly used to smoke marijuana became visible. Officers arrested the student for possession of drug paraphernalia. He was also charged with the campus violation of possession of drug paraphernalia intended for use with illegal drugs.
