Police Blotter: Two different students found passed out in vomit in campus bathrooms

Ohio University Police Department officers responded to two separate call about students passed out in vomit in residence hall bathrooms over the weekend.

First, OUPD responded to a call about a student passed out in Hoover House on Saturday at about 3 a.m.

The student was found lying in her vomit on the bathroom floor. Officers observed that she smelled like alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, according to the report.

She was arrested for underage drinking and possession of a fake ID. The student was taken to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail to sober up.

OUPD responded to a call about another student passed out a bathroom in Gamertsfelder Hall at about 11 p.m. Saturday.

The student was sitting in his vomit. He had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled like alcohol, according to the report. He was arrested for underage drinking and taken to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

That was one of five alcohol-related incidents reported by OUPD this weekend. OUPD also issued three citations for possession of marijuana.

Hide and seek

Residential assistants at Pickering Hall called OUPD about an intoxicated student passed out in the hallway at about midnight Saturday.

When the officer arrived, she woke up the student and observed he had bloodshot eyes and smelled like alcohol. Officers tried to find out the name of the student and asked him to produce his wallet, which was visible in his pocket.

He then ran from the officers, jumping over a balcony railing, according to the OUPD report. The student hid from officers but was found a few minutes later. He fled on foot again and was eventually caught.

He was arrested for obstructing official business, disorderly conduct by intoxication and possessing a fake ID. He was taken to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.

Pig out

On Friday, the Athens County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report about a loose pig in Chauncey. 

Deputies were able to get in contact with the owner of the pig, who was given a warning for an animal at large.

According to the report, deputies told the woman to keep her pig on the property or charges would be filed.

Family fuel

Deputies took a theft report from a man who said his cousin was stealing gas from his car Saturday in Carbondale.

According to the report, when deputies arrived, the man said no gas had actually been taken but wanted them to speak to his cousin about the incident.

Deputies were unable to find the cousin. The man did not wish to do anything else, since no gas had been taken.

Creepy cleaners

On Friday, the sheriff’s office took a report from a woman over the phone who said people arrived at her house on Canaanville Road saying they were sent to clean it for her. 

The woman sent the people away and said she had not hired a cleaning crew. After talking to her family and home health aides, they confirmed that none of them had requested a cleaning crew to be sent to her home. 

Deputies told the woman to call again if they returned and to keep her doors locked.
