CLAUDIA TAYLOR JOHNSON, 210 West 6th Street

Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor / Misrepresentation of Age by a Minor: A non-UT subject, who was under the age of 21, was reported as screaming while her boyfriend, another non-UT subject, attempted to get her into his vehicle. The female subject broke away and fled the area but not before falling and striking her head on the pavement. Responding officers arrived in time to pluck her out of a busy intersection. The subject named her boyfriend as the other subject but refused to believe he was there and was trying to help her. The subject had consumed alcoholic beverages by using a driver’s license issued to another person. In lieu of public intoxication charges, the subject was issued a citation for the Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor and turned over to a sober third party. Occurred on 05/24/15 at 2:23 AM.

JESSE H. JONES COMMUNICATION CENTER, 2504 –B Whitis

Criminal Trespass Warning: A non-UT subject was observed sleeping under an awning on the south side of the building. The subject was awakened with a written criminal trespass warning. Occurred on 05/22/15 at 12 noon.

JESSE H. JONES COMMUNICATION CENTER, 2504 –B Whitis

Criminal Trespass: Some folks just can’t take a warning. The subject in the above case was reported as sleeping under the same awning he had slept under a few hours earlier which led to him receiving a written criminal trespass warning at that time. Having previously been issued a warning, the subject was taken into custody. Occurred on 05/22/15 at 3:00 PM.

SARAH M. & CHARLES E. SEAY PSYCHOLOGY BUILDING, 108 East Dean Keeton

Public Intoxication: A non-UT subject was reported as being “passed out” in the roadway. Responding officers found the subject lying down in the left turn lane on Speedway. The subject was difficult to rouse and was unable to answer simple questions. While the subject was wearing a wedding ring, he professed he was not betrothed and did not know where his spouse was located. The subject was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the point Austin-Travis County EMS needed to transport the subject to a local hospital for the treatment of alcohol poisoning. Occurred on 05/23/15 at 1:29 AM.

SID RICHARDSON HALL, 2300 Red River

Theft: A lanyard containing an office key and UT ID card was stolen from an unsecured 3rd floor office in Building #1. Prior to the theft being reported to the UT Police Department, the victim was notified by the College Station Police Department that the lanyard, key and identification card had been recovered in College Station, Texas. Theft occurred on 05/18/15 between 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM. Recovered on 05/22/15.

STUDENT ACTIVITY CENTER, 2201 Speedway

Possession of Marijuana: UT Police Officers were dispatched to a 2nd floor workroom where two UT students were reported as sitting in the dark amongst a “funny smell.” The responding officers recognized the odor as soon as they entered the room and found one of the two students was in possession of a plastic baggie containing a green leafy substance that was later tested to be .12 ounces of marijuana. Occurred on 05/22/15 at 9:15 PM.

UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS ADMINISTRATION, 1616 Guadalupe

Criminal Trespass Warning (2 counts): Two non-UT subjects were reported as sleeping on the north side of the building. The subjects were awakened with written criminal trespass warnings and directed to leave the property. Occurred on 05/22/15 at 8:06 AM.

2300 San Jacinto

Duty Upon Striking an Unattended Vehicle: A witness reported seeing a white Toyota truck back out of a parking space and strike the rear bumper of a parked and unattended silver Toyota Truck. The driver of the white truck left the scene without leaving driver information on the silver truck. Repair cost: $100.00. Reported on 05/23/15 at 5:00 PM.

24th Street and San Antonio Street

Public Intoxication: A UT police officer observed a non-UT subject stumbling while “covered in blood” from a cut above his right eye. The subject could not recall how he received the cut which was not surprising as he also could not recall the date, time of day, who the president of the United States was or if Mickey Mouse was a cat or a dog, but he was fairly certain the beloved mouse was not a cat. The subject claimed to be a Texas A&M student and he believed he was in College Station. The subject was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the point Austin-Travis County EMS needed to transport him to a local hospital for the treatment of alcohol poisoning. Occurred on 05/23/15 at 1:00 AM.

The University of Texas Police Department responded to 117 Alarm Reports, 6 Fire Alarm Activations, 2 “Police Help” Callbox Activations, 9 Suspicious Activity Reports, 12 Traffic Violations, 5 Medical Emergency Assist Requests, 4 Unsecured Door Reports, 2 Welfare Concern Reports, 3 Damaged Property Reports (Weather Related) and 3 Public Assist Requests between 05/22/15 and 05/26/15.
