When officers arrived, they found the 22-year-old male in the house. He admitted to drinking, but was unsure how much alcohol he had consumed. An ambulance arrived, and when told that he needed to go to the hospital, he tried to fight the paramedics and push past officers.

A message was sent out to find the person of interest to hold him for questioning.


  • A female student reported that $240 was stolen from her backpack on Feb. 9 in the BECC. The student told police that she had taken $400 out from an ATM on Feb. 5, and that when she was in the BECC studying for seven hours, she got up and came back to find that a majority of the money was stolen. BUPD found that where the student was sitting had surveillance cameras and after investigating the surveillance footage found that no one had come during that time to steal the money from her backpack.
