Campus Crime is compiled from weekly reports from the University Police Departmental logs.

Sept. 1, 2017

10 a.m.—While checking parked cars in the parking garage, University Police Captain Jarrod Long caught a 20-year-old female student parked in a disability parking space using her grandfather’s disability placard. 

Captain Long noticed the vehicle parked in the disability space without the proper university-issued decal accompanying the disability placard. Students are required to display both the state disability placard or license plate and the A-State hangtag with the “tier 1” sticker affixed to it.

When the female student returned to her vehicle, Long advised her that she needed to get a “tier 1” sticker to park in a disability space. The student initially told Long that the disability placard was hers and that she didn't know she needed the extra sticker. 

Upon further questioning, the student admitted that the placard was, in fact, her grandfather’s. And due to the location, Long knew she had not previously dropped off her grandfather.

At that time, Long confiscated the placard and cited the student for unlawfully parking in a disability space. The student was also referred to Student Conduct for dishonesty.

1:56 a.m.—Officer Sean Calaway stopped a 30-year-old man walking along the side of Johnson Avenue.

Officer Calaway noticed that Anthony Miller had been in the road, so he stopped to check on the man. According to the active report, Miller was in possession of a small amount of cocaine and methamphetamine, 21 Xanax pills and one buprenorphine pill.

THere was no indication, however, that Miller was arrested. And the masked report appears to indicate that the case is still under investigation. In the report, Miller was cited for two felony counts of possession of meth or cocaine, one possession of a schedule 3 drug less than two grams, one possession of a schedule 4 or 5 less than 28 grams, and one public intoxication.

Miller also was issued a notice of persona non grata, banning him from the A-State campus.

3:10 a.m.—Officer Daniel Bradway responded to an assault that had already occurred at Pack Place Apartments Building 1.

When Officer Bradway arrived on the scene, a 21-year-old female student was sitting on the steps with a busted lip and knot on her forehead. She was visibly upset and complained of pain from her injuries.

Thee student, a resident of Pack Place, explained that she had been at a party off campus when another female said she wanted to fight her. After returning to her apartment, the female and a 22-year-old male student allegedly broke into Pack Place Building 1 and attacked her, punching her in the face.

Video evidence confirmed that the male student drove around the parking gate to park, took off his shirt, and began running toward the building. Cell phone footage showed the aggressive verbal confrontation between the victim and the male student inside the apartment building but did not show the physical contact between the two.

Officer Bradway did not feel he had enough evidence to seek felony warrants, but the victim was referred to the warrant process. Meanwhile, the male student was referred to Student Conduct for assault, trespass, disorderly conduct and a residence hall violation.
