Campus Watch: Below is a summary of campus activity reported to or observed by The University Police Department Patrol Officers between Thursday, 08/25/16 and Friday, 08/26/16


Driving While Intoxicated: UTPD Dispatch received a call from a would-be good Samaritan who attempted to help change a tire. The caller reported being chased by a non-UT subject with a belt after he attempted to help him repair his damaged vehicle. UTPD officers responded and found a vehicle with a flat tire at that location. The driver of the vehicle was found to be intoxicated to the point that he could operate a belt responsibly, let alone a motor vehicle. Occurred on 08/25/16 at 4:02 p.m.


Criminal Trespass: UTPD Dispatch received a call about a non-UT subject sleeping at this location. Our officers responded and found that the subject had a previous criminal trespass warning and placed him under arrest for violating that warning. Occurred on 08/26/16 at 4:48 a.m.

The University of Texas Police Department responded to 26 Alarm Reports, 5 Traffic Violations, 1 Motor Vehicle Collision, 11 Suspicious Activity Reports, 6 Foot Patrols, 3 Medical Emergency Assists, 1 Welfare Concern Report, 5 Found
Property Reports, and 6 Public Assist between 08/24/16 and 08/25/16.
