Campus Crime: Feb. 18 - Feb. 22
Officer Keith Gilliam responded to a fire alarm at the Nursing and Health Professions building.
Gilliam determined the alarm was activated when someone burned macaroni and cheese in a microwave on the first floor. Jonesboro Fire Department personnel declared the area safe.
Niya Blair reported an unwanted person in the Multicultural Center office. Officer Bobby Duff responded at 12:50 p.m. and found Ryan Johnson being disruptive and refusing to leave the office area.
Johnson did not respond to multiple requests for identification and was being passive resistive, according to the report.
Duff escorted Johnson to the Communication Center in order to verify his identification. Duff noted the Multicultural Center had had previous problems with Johnson as well.
In the report, Duff said, “I feel that his presence with his current course of conduct is putting the female populace at risk and merits further communication between Student Affairs and the staff he has alarmed with his conduct.”
Officer Daniel Bradway noticed the smell of marijuana coming from one of the rooms in Arkansas Hall. Occupants of the room did not respond to Bradway’s repeated knocks but he heard someone inside the room making a sound with a plastic bag.
The RA of the floor arrived and the two authorities unlocked the room to perform a health and safety inspection. The two people inside the room, Matthew Blevins and Taylor Osment, were lying on the beds and denied using marijuana, according to the report.
Bradway informed Blevins and Osment that since he could smell marijuana in the room they would be issued referrals for university drug policy violations.
At approximately 3 a.m., Officer Daniel Bradway prepared to make a traffic stop on University Loop for a broken taillight. When Bradway began to follow the vehicle, the driver, Sean Cunningham, turned in to Honors Avenue and made repeated attempts to back in and out of the street.
When Bradway approached the driver he noticed Cunningham was acting confused and smelled of intoxicants. Cunningham said his vehicle had run out of gas, but Bradway pointed out the car was still running with a normal RPM rate and showed no signs of being out of fuel.
Cunningham said he had had a few drinks, and failed several field sobriety tests before he was transported to the Jonesboro Police Department. According to the report, his blood alcohol content was .134 percent.
