Campus Watch

December 19, 2014

Campus Watch: Below is a summary of campus activity reported to or observed by The University Police Department Patrol Officers between Thursday, 12/18/14 and Friday, 12/19/14.

Last of 2014
This will be the last Campus Watch edition of 2014. I know it is a long time until the new year and to “tidings” you over until then, I have attached the “Best of 2014” edition. It was an interesting year and we received several nominations so it is a lengthy edition – kind of like a Monday edition after a home football game. Take it in stride, read a little each day and laugh every day. Make sure you let us know which one is your absolute favorite so we can publish the top ten. Until then, enjoy the season and everything it means to you and your circle of loved ones. Most of all, Be Safe!


FRANK ERWIN CENTER, 1701 Red River

Assault by Contact / Public Intoxication / Criminal Trespass / Resisting Arrest or Detention: A police officer was flagged down by a patron who pointed out another patron of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. The reporting person stated the other patron had just assaulted a third patron by pushing her into her seat. The victim of the assault had already left the area. The subject was then seen, or should I say heard, being verbally abusive to other patrons. The officer directed the Grinch like patron out of the arena for an interview. The non-UT subject showed several signs of intoxication. The officer felt it was best the subject leave the holiday concert early and directed him to do so. The subject became verbally abusive toward the officer and refused to leave. The subject then used physical force to prevent the officer from escorting the subject out of the venue. The ruckus continued as other officers arrived to assist. The resistance grew to the point one officer took electrifying action to stop the fray. Five seconds later, the subject went from being physically resistive to being passively resistive…and to all a good night. Occurred on 12/18/14 at 10:00 PM.

JESTER ACADEMIC CENTER, 201 East 21st Street

Criminal Trespass Warning (2 counts): Two non-UT subjects were reported as sleeping in a 1st floor student lounge. Both subjects were awakened and issued written criminal trespass warnings prior to being escorted out of the building. Occurred on 12/19/14 at 3:06 AM.

UNION BUILDING, 2308 Whitis

Public Intoxication / Possession of Controlled Substance / Possession of Drug Paraphernalia / Possession of Inhalant Paraphernalia: A non-UT subject was reported as being unconscious in the Union Underground. The subject was in possession of several items used to store, prepare and inhale marijuana, a prescription pill that was not prescribed to the subject and several empty cans of nitrous oxide cans and a Whip Cream can. The subject was found to be under the influence of intoxicating agents to the point Austin-Travis County EMS needed to transport the subject to a local hospital for treatment. Occurred on 12/18/14 at 11:58 PM.

1900 Trinity

Driving While Intoxicated (Enhanced with Prior DWI Conviction) / Driving While License Suspended: A non-UT subject was stopped after running two red lights while driving a white Chevrolet Trailblazer. After showing several signs of intoxication, the subject was taken into custody. The subject’s driver’s license could not be confiscated per law as it had already been suspended. Occurred on 12/19/14 at 12:27 AM.
