Police Beat #16

I know you are all sleeping after having been to the midnight showing of Twilight, but just in case one or two of your are awake already, here is this week's Police Beat to celebrate it being Friday!

April 11: Someone stole 1,000 square feet of sod from west of Helaman Halls. Police have no suspects.

April 13: Police questioned several students as to why they were looking in the windows of the Cannon Center. The students said that they thought they saw someone in the Cannon Center stealing school property, but when they got closer, they realized it was the reflection of the streetlights.

April 14: A student called BYU Police when she saw a creepy looking person smoking by the Administration Building.

April 8: The father of a student called BYU police when he had not heard from his daughter for four days. BYU police called the student and told her to call her father.

Nov. 7: Police received a call from the assistant principal at a private school in Salt Lake County. A fourth grade student had told the assistant principal that his dad was making a bomb in the garage to blow up the BYU football stadium. Following immediate investigation, police discovered the child wasn't telling the truth.

Nov. 6: Officers responded to a call concerning a disorderly person in the atrium of the HBLL. The subject at issue was wearing a red shirt, a scarf around his neck, a red mask around his eyes and holding several roses. He was holding a sign that read, "Ask me for ... A-Hug, A-Rose, A-Hand, A-Date, A-Nything else." When officers told him he wasn't allowed to solicit in this manner, he continued to argue and told them he wasn't going to stop. Officers then explained that he may be arrested for disorderly conduct but he said he had diplomatic immunity and could not be arrested. When officers told him that it is necessary to receive permission from the dean of student life to demonstrate on campus, he agreed to follow through with the dean and left the area.

Scripture of the Day: Moroni 10:3

  2. This is hilarious! Even funnier that it is all true! It reminds me of the time we used to get the local news channel for a small rural town. One night the top of the hour big news was the fact that a number of chickens were wandering around the town square and pooping everywhere. Such a different world. I remember when one of my sisters came back from BYU--she said it was so strange to look around and see something other than blonde hair and large white teeth
