Spiked gatorade  

University Police conducted a vehicle patrol along 600 University Drive at 11:35 p.m. on Feb. 6 when a male was found yelling toward the direction of the Right Way Shuttle Bus.

The male subject had a plastic disposable bottle while on the sidewalk. The officer started following and observing the suspect when he walked toward Towers Hall lobby, according to the report.

The male threw the plastic Gatorade bottle onto the sidewalk and was told to stop by the officer.

The suspect said he was having a disagreement with an occupant on the bus and also admitted that he knew he shouldn’t have littered, according to the reports.

When the male spoke there was an odor of intoxicants coming from him and his eyes looked  glossy, according to the report. When asked how much alcohol he had consumed the suspect said he had had approximately three drops of UV Blue vodka mixed with his Gatorade.

The subject was directed to dispose the bottle and then submitted to take a Preliminary Breath Test revealing a .12 level, according to the police report. He was issued a citation and given a verbal warning for littering.

Scattering evidence

Four males were walking into Putnam Park at 7:22 p.m. on Feb. 3. One male subject was holding an object to another male suspect’s mouth, according to the report.

When the officer announced his presence, one of the suspects walked away from the group and placed an object in the snow while another male subject ran approximately 100 feet away. The individual who ran returned to the area,  but not before dropping several items, according to the report.

A jar containing marijuana was on the ground near them.

The male who ran was handcuffed and detained. He was searched after consent and was found to have rolling papers in his pants pocket. He was asked what he threw and he admitted to throwing a vaporizer and cigar.

The officer retrieved the jar of marijuana and vaporizer and asked who it belonged to. None of the subjects admitted to it. Another subject was asked what he placed in the snow, and he stated it was a different jar of marijuana while also admitting the vapor belonged to him, according to the report.

The jar of marijuana and vaporizer were later retrieved and the male who ran admitted the first jar of marijuana belonged to him. Citations were issued for possession of drug paraphernalia as well as possession of marijuana.

Snorting powder

A university officer met with two resident assistants who said loud noises and an odor of intoxicants were coming from a resident room on Feb. 6 at 2:21 a.m.

The officer arrived at the room and heard several male voices inside. After explaining his reason for contact, the officer observed a small green straw sitting on a wooden table and a white powder substance on a futon.

The suspects were described as erratic and jumpy and seemed to have had way too much caffeine, according to the report.

One of the suspects said that they were not students at the university. One of the males said they were out drinking at a party and only recently returned. He was unable to give an accurate time frame.

He said they were in their rooms when they heard a knock on the door and the RA made them dispose the alcohol. The same male subject said the powder they snorted  was a protein powder.

The officer asked if they were really snorting protein powder, and the subject again said they were snorting a strawberry cream flavored protein powder. The two occupants refused to let the officer go inside to verify their claim. They were advised to dispose of any illegal items, according to the reports.
