  • At 11:40 p.m. on Aug. 30, a campus Safety Cruiser driver noticed a fire had erupted in a dumpster at the south side of Williams Hall. The fire was producing large amounts of smoke and flames. The Peoria Fire Department was called, arrived on the scene and extinguished the flames. There was no major structural damage to the building and the cause of the fire is unknown at this time.

  • At 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 26 in the Campustown parking lot, an arrested subject ran away from the police. The subject was a former Bradley student who had snuck into the Markin Center on campus, where they had left their backpack. BUPD retrieved the backpack and found open liquor, marijuana and a replica of a handgun inside. While speaking to the police, it was determined that the subject had a warrant out for their arrest. The subject was placed under arrest and seated in a squad car, during which they tried to escape by opening the squad car door and running. BUPD chased the subject for several blocks before they caught them. The subject is now banned from campus.

  • Around 8:02 a.m. on Aug. 25 in the St. James Apartment Complex, a BUPD officer located a bat in one of the buildings. The officer was walking by the building to complete their rounds when they saw something flying, went to investigate and found the bat sitting in the basement. Peoria Country Animal Protection Services was called to the scene and removed the bat.

  • Around 5:28 p.m. on Aug. 27, a female Bacci Pizzeria employee was found intoxicated on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant by officers who were on their patrol. The female appeared to be intoxicated and had urinated on herself, but was responsive and breathing. Paramedics and the Peoria Fire Department arrived on scene and told the woman that she had to go to the hospital. When one of the paramedics reached out to help her, the woman punched them in the nose. She then began actively kicking and spitting on the paramedics, which resulted in her being physically restrained. The woman also called one of the officers racial slurs. BUPD escorted the woman to the hospital. Once at the hospital, the woman was visibly agitated and spat on two nurses and a security guard. Following her admittance to the hospital, BUPD gave her a notice to appear for seven counts of aggravated battery and a warrant on a peace officer out of Logan County.
