Consumption of Alcohol by a Minor (2 counts) / Driving While Intoxicated / Possession of More Than One Valid Driver's License: While investigating a possible harassment call, UT police officers found a female UT student and a male UT student on the northwest side of the dormitory. Both students were under the age of 21. Both students were found to have consumed alcoholic beverages. The female student stated she had obtained an alcoholic beverage from an unsecured 4th floor dormitory room. A police officer advised the male student he was not to drive his car home and summoned a friend of the student to provide a ride. After releasing the student to his friend, the police officer observed the male student walk to his vehicle and drive away. The officer pursued the vehicle on foot and stopped the vehicle. The student was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the point he was driving while intoxicated. The student was found to be in possession of another person's Texas driver's License.

Crime Prevention Tip

The female subject admitted to stealing her alcohol from an unattended dormitory room. She did not know the name of the resident from that room, but believed it would be alright to take the alcohol as the resident had offered her alcohol on a previous day. Aside from the obvious alcohol concerns, leaving your dormitory room unlocked makes you susceptible to thefts. You should keep your dorm room door closed and locked at all times — even when you are in your dorm room.
