Beat of the Week:
Oct. 30 – Information (Building 43) – Two girls who were attending the Wolfson High School homecoming dance in the University Center went outside because of an argument. While outside, the two girls found the keys to the car in which they arrived as passengers underneath the car. The driver had put them there because she didn’t want to bring them inside. The two girls used the keys to unlock the car to sit inside it while continuing to argue for about 20 more minutes. Afterward, they exited the vehicle to talk on their cell phones. One of the girls got back into the car and drove away. The driver of the car said she didn’t have permission to do this, but they did not want any further help from UPD at that time.
