Police Reports: September 8, 2023

  • At 1:10 a.m. on Sept. 6 at University Hall, an intoxicated Bradley student caused a disturbance. A resident advisor explained to BUPD that the student vomited multiple times and urinated on the inside of their dorm room door. Urine pooled beneath the student’s door and seeped into the hallway. The student reported having had six shots of liquor and seven glasses of beer, although their account of the number of drinks varied throughout the police interaction. The student was then transported by ambulance to Carle Health Methodist Hospital. The case was referred to Residential Living and Student Conduct.
  • At 7:43 p.m. on Aug. 24, a Bradley student living in University Hall reported a cybercrime to BUPD. The student reported that they accepted an individual’s Instagram follow request, then moved the conversation to Snapchat. The student exchanged nude photographs with the user. The individual later sent the student screenshots of their Instagram account along with the accounts of their family and friends and a message that read, “You need to do as I say.” The student deleted the online activity and reported the incident. An investigation is ongoing.
  • Between 8 a.m. and 9:20 p.m. on Aug. 28, an unidentified individual, believed to be a Bradley student, defaced a basement-level gender-neutral bathroom in the Cullom-Davis Library by writing a transphobic message across the floor. A staff member alerted BUPD to the “alarming graffiti” in the bathroom that evening. A supplemental report with factual corrections and updated charges was filed on Sept. 2. A criminal investigation is ongoing. If apprehended, the suspect will face criminal defacement and hate crime charges.
  • Around 8 p.m. on Aug. 31, in the parking lot East of Renaissance Coliseum, a Bradley student operating a “formula student race car” lost control of the vehicle at high speed. The vehicle “malfunctioned on the roadway” and hit a curb in the parking lot. A Bradley-owned van was also hit and sustained minimal damage. The curb the vehicle hit was fractured. The student reported wearing a helmet and seatbelt at the time of the collision. The student declined medical treatment at the scene and was released.
