Drunk or sick?

At 1:00 a.m. on Jan. 7, the Oakland University Police Department received a call stating that an individual in North Hamlin Hall was having difficulty breathing. Officers arrived and found the individual near an inhaler, but noted that his eyes were red and watery. The man told the officer he was having an asthma and panic attack. The officer offered to call an ambulance, but the man refused to be examined by emergency medical services, explaining that he had just used his inhaler. The officer eventually performed a breathalyzer test, which revealed the man had a BAC of .186. Another person in the vicinity also confessed to drinking and showed a BAC of .172. Both were given MIP citations.

Locker room thief

OUPD was called to the Recreation Center after a complaint of larceny. A man had set his headphones on the locker room bench before stepping out. When he returned five minutes later, the headphones were gone. No suspects have been identified at this time. Due to the Recreation Center lack of video surveillance inside the locker rooms, it’s unlikely that the thief will be found.
