fightingJan. 2 – Underage drinking (Osprey Village)

A disturbance report resulted in the discovery of underage drinking.

At around 10 p.m., three officers reported to an Osprey Village room, where they found two male students and one female student, all 20 years of age.

The first male said the two other students, who had been dating two months, were arguing. They were slamming on the walls of their room and several neighbors had asked them to quiet down.

The first male also said the female student struck the second male’s face, but then everyone calmed down.

Officers did not confirm the dating violence occurred.

While in the room, officers observed several glasses containing alcohol and alcohol bottles in the trash can.

The officers asked if there was more alcohol and the second male gave them an open bottle, which was then confiscated.

Officers removed all alcohol and containers, including a second bottle they found in the students’ kitchen.

The three students were referred to Student Conduct.
