From yesterday's Police Beat:

When police approached the student around 1 a.m., they noticed that she had red, bloodshot eyes. The student also had difficulty walking.
The student said she had been taking shots of vodka with orange juice, reports stated.
From today's Police Beat:
Two students were arrested early Sunday morning for underage drinking at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 1449 N. Cherry Road, reports stated.
While an officer was on foot patrol he noticed several people outside the house with open liquor bottles from the party. People were entering and exiting through several different parts of the house, reports stated.
When an officer spoke with the hired security at the event, he noticed a male and a female student knocking on a door in the northwest corner of the house, reports stated.
As the male student knocked, police could hear him shout, "They told me to come around, there's cops out front," in slurred speech, reports stated.
Police made contact with the students to inform them they were no longer out front, report stated.
The officer told the students if they wanted to enter the house they had to go around to the front, and he told police he was not aware of the rule, reports stated.
Police could smell an odor of alcohol on the student's breath and his eyes were red and watery, reports stated.
The male student told police he did not have his identification on him but that he was 22, reports stated.
He gave police a name and birth date that showed up as a California resident. Police asked the student if he knew it was a crime to lie to police about his date of birth and he said he did not, reports stated.
Police then asked the man if he was sure the information he gave was going to return with a valid driver's license and the student said no, reports stated.
The president of the house then came over and told the student, "Just tell the truth," reports stated.
Police asked if the name the president called him was his real name and he said yes, reports stated.
Police placed the student in handcuffs and arrested him for lying to an officer and underage drinking, reports stated.
The student told police he lied because he didn't want to get in trouble for underage drinking, reports stated.
The female student also had an odor of alcohol on her breath but told police she wasn't drinking, reports stated.
When police asked her why she smelled like alcohol, she admitted she had a few beers before she arrived at the fraternity, reports stated.
The female student was also cited for underage drinking and because she is 17 years old, police called her parents and left a message informing them of the incident, reports stated.
The students were released at the scene, reports stated.
That's what happens when I give the benefit of the doubt over stereotypes. The Wildcat also needs to stop using the phrase "reports stated" at the end of every stinking sentence. It's driving me nuts. And I miss the days when the Police Beat stated names of the people involved (evil grin).
