When officers arrived, only six students were in the area where the fight was supposed to occur. The officer told the students to go to their rooms, but they stayed on the stairwell and were letting people into the building. The officer left and when he returned later the subjects were still there. One of the subjects took off running and the officer had to chase him and caught him on the first floor. The 19-year-old male student was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting.
At 10:42 p.m. Saturday, April 9, a student called police because two males were outside of Living Center South asking everyone who passed them if they lived there or had keys to get in.
