Drunken fools don't mix well with crime

By Laura Katsirdakis

Criminal types are not getting any smarter, as this week's crime report shows.

Last Thursday, police arrested a 31 year-old man for harassment and besetting, said Const. Cam Halliday of the London Police Department. Just before 7 a.m., police observed the man standing outside a residence near St. George and Huron street. When police approached him, they found him committing an indecent act.

Lovely, just lovely.

The man fled but was later apprehended by police, Halliday confirmed. Make sure to close your blinds when you're changing!

In an incident at 2 a.m. on Friday near King's University College, a cab driver contacted Campus Community Police Service reporting a fare who had left without paying, said Sgt. Michael Mics. The driver then noticed the person left their wallet in the back seat of the cab. CCPS was able to locate the individual and determined there was no criminal intent, as the person was too intoxicated to be aware of the unpaid fare or their missing wallet.

This was not the only intoxicated student to make such a display of intelligence. A student at Perth Hall and two at Saugeen-Maitland Hall were drunk enough that emergency officials were contacted, Mics said. One was taken to hospital, while the other two were treated by Student Emergency Response Team members.

In another drunken romp, some students made an unsuccessful attempt to free the parking meters at the Physics and Astronomy Building from their earthly bondage. Mics noted the venture was probably an attempt to get the money from the meters, despite the fact they contain no more than a dollar or two.

An unusual incident occurred this week when a male showed up at the CCPS office with an e-mail from the Winnipeg police telling him he had been reported missing, Mics said. CCPS contacted the Winnipeg police to let them know he was alive and well. The moral of the story? When you move off to university, please, tell your parents.
