Criminal Mischief / Public Intoxication: A UT staff member discovered a broken stairwell window and a small pool of blood on the landing below the broken window. As the staff member entered onto the third floor, from the stairwell, he observed an intoxicated UT student running into the bathroom with a rubber band wrapped around his bleeding hand. The staff member went into the bathroom and witnessed the student attempting to stop the bleeding with cotton balls and Scotch tape. The student was unable to stop the bleeding, so the staff member left the bathroom to get medical help. Prior to the arrival of the UT police officer, the subject had checked himself into a local area hospital for medical treatment. Officers met with the subject at the hospital and observed the following signs of intoxication: blood shot eyes, strong odor of an alcoholic beverage, and a 1 inch cut on his thumb. The student, under the legal age of 21 years of age, stated to the officers that he earlier had been "rejected by a girl" which caused him to take a beer bottle and smash it. In addition to all law enforcement action taken, The UT Environmental Health and Safety Department was called out to properly dispose of all the biohazardous waste.

Crime Prevention Tip:

In this case, the suspect was claiming to have injured his thumb by smashing a beer bottle. Had he been an avid CSI viewer, he would have known crime scenes never lie, only suspects.

Assault with Bodily Injury: Several UT students contacted the University Police Department to report an assault behind Prather Dormitory. Witnesses observed an Asian male push an Asian female into the back seat of a 1999 Toyota Camry and begin "Manhandling" the woman by slapping her. Each time she attempted to escape he would push her back into the vehicle. During the investigation, the suspect told the officer that he did not remember hitting his girlfriend because he was "in the heat of the moment." The officers talked with the victim and observed visible injuries to her upper arms and back.

Crime Prevention Tip:

Kudos to the students that notified UTPD with regards to this assault. One of the many suggestions we make to all students and staff members is to preprogram the main University Police telephone number into your cellular telephones (512-471-4441). Quick reporting leads to a quicker response by law enforcement officers.
