Feb. 28
At 12:20 p.m., Officer Floyd Layne arrived at the Communication/Education building in response to a report of terroristic threatening. According to the report, A-State instructor Patrick Lynn Peck was approached by a former student, Brenda Dornback, who wanted to view a paper she wrote for Peck’s class three semesters ago.

When Peck told her the paper was destroyed as per university policy, she became verbally aggressive and threatened to ransack his office. Peck retreated into his office and locked the door, at which point a witness phoned University Police. Dornback left the scene before Layne arrived to investigate.

Officers in the dispatch center observed William Tietz repeatedly pressing the emergency call button in an Arkansas Hall elevator before exiting to his room. When Officer Daniel Bradway arrived at Arkansas Hall, he was directed to Tietz’s room by Destin Johnson, who was in the lobby. Johnson opened Tietz’s room using a key that was hidden in a ceiling tile.

According to the report, Tietz was passed out on a lawn chair in his room and “extremely intoxicated.” Bradway placed Tietz under arrest for possession of intoxicants by a minor, and issued him residence hall violations for alcohol and false alarms. Johnson received an alcohol violation and a university referral for key policy violation.

Officer Daniel Bradway was dispatched to NorthPark Quads Building 4 in response to a male who could be seen taking off his clothes and running outside in the snow and ice. Upon his arrival, Bradway heard loud music and voices from a first floor room, and knocked on the door when he heard occupants playing a drinking game called Thumb Master.

The occupants of the room attempted and failed to hide liquor and alcohol bottles before opening the door for Bradway. All 11 people were escorted to the hallway and identified by the RA before being told to empty their room of alcohol. The offenders were issued university referrals for residence hall alcohol policy violations.

March 5
At 1:18 a.m., Officer Robert Peevey noticed the smell of marijuana from a third floor room in NorthPark Quads Building 1. Upon entering the room with floor RA Ricardo Lategan, Peevey discovered the windows in the common room area were open and their screens removed. A small amount of marijuana and paraphernalia was found in the common room.

Upon further investigation of the quad, the officers noted two rooms were unoccupied and the residents of the other two rooms, Xavier Woodson and Jerry Moorehead, were not at home. Woodson and Moorehead were issued university referrals for drug violations. This is the second time the two individuals have been referred for drug violation, according to the report.
