Destruction of Property
At 12:25 p.m., March 28, University Police received an anonymous tip that there were subjects jumping on cars in J-3 Lot. The anonymous tipster gave the name of a 19-year-old male student. Officers responded and were unable to locate the individual. In the afternoon, the anonymous individual sent a photo to officers that showed the subjects jumping on a car. Officers were able to match locations and found the damaged car. The owner was contacted, and they stated there was no damage when they parked the car. The suspect was found and admitted to jumping on the car and was arrested for destruction of property.

At 12:15 p.m. March 29, University Police received a call for a personal injury accident on University Drive near J-1 Lot.

She was cited for the accident.

Person in Distress
At 9:52 a.m. March 27, staff members in Wickes Hall advised that a 38-year-old male student became upset because he felt no one was listening to his concerns. Staff tried to call him down.
