Most people would prefer sleeping in their bed, but sometimes you have to use your surroundings to your advantage. 

The Ohio University Police Department received a call about an intoxicated man sleeping in the Grover Center lobby Saturday. 

Upon arriving, the man — an Ohio University student — was unsteady on his feet, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, and smelled of alcohol. He was taken into custody for underage consumption by intoxication and was transported to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail pending his sobriety.

I’m on a new level

OUPD responded to Wilson Hall on Saturday for a report of an intoxicated woman. 

The woman, an OU student, smelled strongly of alcohol and was unable to speak “due to her level of intoxication,” according to the report. She was transported to OhioHealth O’Bleness Hospital for treatment and charged with disorderly conduct by intoxication. 

Student stumble

On Saturday at about midnight, OUPD officers observed a man stumbling into the road on Mill Street near Hocking Street.
