An apple a day is supposed to keep the doctor away, but some people may have taken the phrase a little too literally.
The Ohio University Police Department took a report for criminal mischief Saturday. A student in Sargent Hall said apples were thrown at her door and bananas were left on her door handle.
Lean on me
While on patrol Sunday at about 1 a.m., an OUPD officer observed a man leaning against a fence on Carpenter Street near Congress Street.
He was unsteady on his feet; had bloodshot, glassy eyes; and smelled of alcohol. The student was arrested and issued a citation for disorderly conduct by intoxication. He was transported to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
Who do you know here?
On Saturday at about 9 p.m., a student attempted to gain access to an unoccupied building on campus, according to an OUPD report.
The student had glossy eyes, smelled of alcohol and said his friends were in the building. He presented a fake Maryland ID when asked to identify himself to OUPD. He was charged with underage consumption and possession of a fake ID.
OUPD responded to Bromley Hall on Friday at about midnight at the request of a student who said her roommate was passed out in her own vomit.
The student could not stand on her own and needed assistance going to the bathroom. She was speaking and moving slowly and had dried vomit in her hair and on her clothes. She was issued a citation for disorderly conduct by intoxication and was transported to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail.
This is a beech

The Sheriff’s Office received another report Monday from a Beechwood Drive resident saying someone had entered his vehicle overnight. Nothing was reported missing. The person, however, had made a mess in the vehicle and left compartments and consoles open.
You can’t miss him
Jefferson Marketplace staff reported a theft by a “tall male” to OUPD on Saturday at about 3 p.m., according to the report.

Rite on time

Smoke and hacked
