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 October 29-November 2.
- Students Jamal Richardson, 20, and Justin Morgan, 18, were in a car accident in the parking lot west of the Farris Center at about 5:17 p.m. Student Jessica Boyd, 20, witnessed the accident, and said she saw Morgan heading west at a fast speed and collided with Richardson after making a right turn. Morgan said he felt Richardson was close to the middle of the straight-away, and Richardson said he was on the correct side of the road. Morgan was found to be at fault for careless driving and failure to yield. The damage of each vehicle was estimated at $250.
- Nonstudent Brittany Boone, 22, was arrested for a DWI at about 2:16 a.m. An officer noticed the taillight of Boone’s Toyota Corolla was out, then noticed the car swerving in its lane, driving repeatedly into the bike lane, driving onto a curb, stopping at the intersection of Farris Road and Dave Ward Drive and entering the intersection on a red light. The officer pulled Boone over into the Centennial Bank parking lot. In the lot, Boone stopped and started moving several times before pulling into a parking spot. When asked for her driver’s license, insurance and registration, Boone gave her driver’s license but forgot about her insurance and registration. The car smelled of alcohol and there was an open box of Coors Light beer in the back seat, several empty cans behind the drivers seat and an opened can in the center console. Boone agreed to a breathalyzer test, but couldn’t comprehend the instructions. Boone was asked if she wanted to continue to the next test, and she refused. Boone was taken to UCAPD under suspicion of DWI. Boone was issued citations for DWI Refusal, Refusal to Submit to Chemical Tests, Careless Driving and No Seat-belt.

The officer told Miller that she needs to face the flow of traffic when parking at the meters, and told Chen that he should not cross a double-yellow line. The damage to the vehicles was estimated at $50 each.
- Student Reggie Mega, 18, reported at about 2:12 p.m. that he had been harassed on October 31 around 8 p.m. in the Hughes Hall parking lot.

He said the man and his friends began yelling at him, saying, “Punk bitch,” “ugly ass,” and “Do you want me to come down there and suck your balls?” One of the men, wearing a ninja mask, threw a water bottle at him, which struck his right hip. Mega said he knew the men were students Anthony Charles, 18, Kalen Hutchinson, 19, and Rodrequiz Frazier, 18. Mega said he thinks the men are bullying him because he’s not “black enough” and his sexuality is being challenged. Mega couldn’t identify who was wearing the mask, but said he thought it was one of the three men. Mega did not press charges.
