Police Beat for Sept. 25

Sept. 16

Hennessy you later

10:25 p.m. – A University of Maine Police Department (UMPD) officer on foot patrol near the freshman quad smelled marijuana coming from a car parked out front of Cumberland Hall. The officer approached the vehicle to find a 19-year-old non-student of the university sitting in the parked car with three other students smoking marijuana and sharing a bottle of Hennessy. The student was summonsed for possession of alcohol by a minor and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. He also received a trespassing warning that extends until the end of the Spring semester and his car was towed.

Sept. 18

One margarita too many

1:49 a.m. – UMPD officers on routine patrol spotted a downed female in the Steam Plant parking lot. Upon approaching the individual, officers found her to be knelt over, throwing up on the ground and called University Volunteer Ambulance Corps (UVAC) for assistance. UVAC assessed the situation and determined the female, who claimed to have only had two margaritas, did not need transport to a medical facility, as she was responsive to their questions. UMPD did not issue a summons despite the female being a non-student of the university.

Rough-housing gone wrong

2:42 a.m. – UMPD officers responded to a fire alarm at the Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity house. Upon arrival, officers determined a brother fell into a fire extinguisher, setting off the extinguisher and blowing its contents into the air which set off their fire security system. Because it was the second case of a fire alarm going off at their house that night, Phi Kappa Sigma was referred to judicial affairs.

Sept. 19

Ooooh, that smell

11:15 a.m. – A UMPD officer responded to an anonymous complaint of the smell of marijuana on the third floor of Somerset Hall. The responding officer knocked on the door of an 18-year-old first-year student, who was very compliant with the officer’s orders. The student willfully handed over his pipe and grinder and was summonsed for possession of drug paraphernalia.
