A male student was found urinating on the second floor of Duryea Parking Deck by Bradley University Police (BUPD) at 814 Duryea Pl. at 11 a.m. Sept. 19.

One student witnessed the male and another student in the parking deck leave a car and urinate in a corner. The witness said he saw the two other students walk out of the parking deck and into Williams Hall. The witness took a photo of where the other student urinated as well as a photo of the license plate of the car.

The witness then contacted BUPD, and from the license plate, BUPD was able to find the cars owner. BUPD then contacted the owner and tried to question the student.

After the owner of the car spoke with an officer, BUPD received an anonymous phone call from another student who said they overheard the call with the owner of the car. After the phone call ended, the owner said he gave the officer a fake name of the student who urinated in the parking deck.

BUPD then contacted the owner of the car and explained the owner was committing an obstruction of justice, and the owner apologized and gave the officer the real name of the student.

No charges were pressed against the student.
