October 20, 2016

Campus Watch: Below is a summary of campus activity reported to or observed by The University Police Department Patrol Officers between Wednesday, 10/19/16 and Thursday, 10/20/16.


Criminal Trespass / Resisting Arrest: A UT staff member reported a suspicious person near the day care playground at this location. Our officers responded and located a non-UT subject who was not wearing a shirt. After speaking with the man, officers learned that he did not have any legitimate business with the university and issued the man a written criminal trespass warning. After releasing the man, our officers noticed that he chose to remain on UT property. UTPD officers spoke to him again and he stated that he had no intention to leave the property. At that point our officers informed him that he was being placed under arrest for criminal trespass. The man expressed his disagreement with this decision by refusing to be placed into handcuffs. After a brief struggle, our officers were able to restrain the man’s arms and place him into a patrol vehicle. No one was injured during the confrontation. Occurred on 10/19/16 at 10:16 a.m.
