On Oct. 5, a Bradley facilities employee reported an act of vandalism to BUPD. The report detailed feces and urine that had been smeared on the walls of the sixth floor Main Street Parking Deck elevator lobby. They noted that graffiti was written alongside the bodily fluids. Officers determined that an individual vandalized the elevator lobby between Sept. 25 and Oct. 2.
At 4 a.m. on Oct. 15, a Bradley parent called BUPD after receiving a worrying call from their student in which they could only hear muffled speech and were unable to reach the student with return calls. Officers contacted the student’s roommate, who was able to get the student on the phone. The roommate told police the student had arranged a ride back to campus. When the student arrived at a fraternity house, officers contacted them and administered a preliminary breath test (PBT). The test determined that the student had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .267, over three-times the legal limit for impairment. They were transported to OSF Saint Francis Medical Center by ambulance. The case was referred to the Office of Residential Living and Student Conduct.
Around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 11, three Bradley students began arguing on the fourth floor of the Business and Engineering Convergence Center (BECC). A pair of students approached another student in a study room and argued with them over who was allowed to use the room. BUPD was called to the location and officers took statements from both parties. The pair said the student in the study room was “being rude” and was acting “ratchet.” The student in the study room said that they reserved the room until midnight and that the other students did not have a right to enter the study room. Officers told the pair of students to leave the area and allowed the student who had reserved the room to continue using it.
On Oct. 12, BUPD was called to an off-campus duplex unit on Callender Avenue for a report of a disruptive argument between two Bradley students. In statements given to officers, the roommates said that they argued over cleanliness, chores, toilet paper and one roommate’s cat. The argument came to a head when one roommate tried to “get a reaction” out of the other by taking a video of them while yelling and laughing at them through a bedroom door. On Oct. 14 at 4:41 p.m., a Bradley faculty member called BUPD to report that one of the students “felt unsafe from his roommate.” When officers returned to the residence, one roommate said they were planning to stay with their significant other for the time being.
