The following information was taken from incident reports filed by officers at UCAPD. The reports are made available by university police after they are approved by a supervisor. That process takes a few days, which delays our report. This is a complete report of incidents filed for April 14-15.

McCarty, 19, drove his truck into a light pole at 3:35 a.m. McCarty was driving in the parking lot between the HPER and Student Health Center, looking at parked cars, when he struck the pole.
