Tudor provided CPSO a fake spelling of his name as well as a fake date of birth and refused to give a clear answer as to whether he was threatening anyone with the makeshift weapon. Tudor admitted to being under the influence of an amphetamine salt that he asserted was not illegal. Tudor did not consent to a search of his person and was issued an exclusion by Troppe.

Person of Interest
Cramer Hall
A student has been identified as a possible graffiti suspect related to the “Saem” graffiti that has left CPSO stumped. It was determined that the student used his ID badge to gain access to Cramer around the same time graffiti showed up despite having no apparent reason to enter the building. He was arrested in Columbia County last November on a warrant related to counts of five criminal mischief. The student’s badge has been flagged if used again on campus. Officers have been informed they should respond to the men’s restrooms in Cramer Hall first if a trace alarm is set off by the use of his badge.

Non-Student Conduct
University Place Hotel
Sergeant McCleary responded to a report that approximately 100 guests with the U.S. Handball Association were exhibiting unruly behavior. The guests consumed alcohol and started creating a lot of noise around 10 p.m., at which point the hotel began fielding complaints from other guests. When attempts to quiet the unruly guests failed, the hotel staff called CPSO for assistance. The guests left the hotel in order to drink at bars. Around 2:15 a.m. CPSO returned to the hotel to ensure that the returning guests didn’t resume their unruliness.
