Officers were dispatched after an intoxicated male student attempted to enter the women’s restrooms at 10:55 p.m. Feb. 17 in Markin Family Student Recreation Center.

Employees of Markin told the student police had been called, so he ran from the building. Officers found him running near the building and asked the student to stop, but the male refused and gave the officers his middle finger.

Officers chased and caught the student, who was then placed in a squad car.

The officers asked the male for his ID, and the student handed them a fake ID. The student tried to exit the squad car multiple times.

The complainant from Markin then positively identified him as the student trying to enter the women’s bathroom.

The male was picked up by the Peoria Police Department and received citations for underage drinking and for having a fake ID.



A male student was reported to Residential Living after causing problems at 6:55 a.m. Feb. 16 in Markin Family Student Recreation Center.

A male student was upset because another male student was not wearing his shoes while doing yoga on the gym mats. The student asked the other student to put his shoes on, which he did not do. The first male student then kicked the other student’s shoes and threw them in the garbage before leaving the gym.

The first male student was later contacted by police and reported to Residential Living.



Resident Advisors reported finding drug paraphernalia at 12:56 a.m. Feb. 18 at 912 Elmwood Ave.
