Police Blotter: Election Edition

November 7, 2008  

Emotions ran wild with Obama’s historic win Tuesday night. Students expressed both elation and anger, as most prevalently seen in their statuses on Facebook.

What did this mean for SMU police? Protests? Riots? Not so much. Unlike the fight, fire and noose incident at Baylor University in Waco, SMU remained rather quiet.

On election day, Tuesday, an iPod was reported stolen from Moody Coliseum, and a female student reported fraudulent charges on her credit card.

The day after the election, at 10:13 a.m., a female student reported she had been sexually assaulted at the beginning of the school year by an acquaintance. The case remains open.

Thirteen minutes later, a student was busted for possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Peyton Hall.

Check back next week for the aftermath of Homecoming weekend.
