Crime on campus

My favorite recent crime blotter entry. Forgive me, couldn't resist.


"At 11:55 p.m., a female student came to the Security office to complain that her boyfriend was a lousy dancer. Security gave the young lady a band aid for her bloody toe, plus two extra band aids, in case she kept dancing with him."


Know the perpetrator?

    1190, I only started getting the Carletonian this year, but the crime blotter is definitely my favorite part of it. A couple of weeks ago, there was a rash of burned food on campus. Horrors.

    I think it's a very good thing the Carleton security staff has a sense of humor.

    I think this is probably my favorite:

    "-At 8:00 a.m., a six foot tall chicken was reported to be causing a disturbance in the Burton Dining Hall. He was apparently holding a sign and clucking at patrons attempting to serve themselves eggs. Security responded, identified the chicken, and escorted him back to his roost in Burton Hall."

    I just checked it. So last Sunday night, three different people pulled the fire alarms? Twice in Watson? Must've been an interesting evening for students in those halls...

    Hollylove:

    Yeah. I yield. You've clearly found the winning entry in the "campus police off-beat humor delivered with a straight face" category.

    I'll still stick with mine in the "adorably sweet I can't believe a security officer could write this" category.

    One more from this past week - maybe a winner in the "busted by the coolest campus patrol team EVER" category:

    "-At 12:30 a.m., Security responded to one of the townhomes that had a live band that totally Rocked…..which is kind of why we responded….the band also rocked the townhouses."

    It does make one wonder if Carleton's admissions committee also moonlights screening new campus security hires.
