On the record

A roundup of this week’s crime at Ferris State University

Catch and release 

Sept. 26 at 12:50 a.m. A Ferris student was pulled over on South Street for not driving with their lights on. After investigation it was found it was a minor driving with the blood alcohol level of .04, which in the state of Michigan classifies that a DUI with a zero-tolerance policy. Luckily the officer let the student park the car and he was only issued an MIP, a big break for the student.

No means no

Sept. 30 at 1:13 and 1:41 p.m. a Ferris Student made advancements toward two different female students, which they politely declined. It is alleged that both females experienced the same situation of after telling the male no, he decided to grab them by the throat and choke them to ‘change their minds’. The females are safe, and the case is still open.

Did this happen?

Oct. 4 at 4:06 p.m. a non-Ferris student came into DPS to report that his girlfriend had sexually molested him while taking a nap. Further into the investigation, it was found that this person had claimed this at multiple different police departments, in multiple different cities. DPS closed the investigation and claimed it as a mental health case.

Responded too fast 

Oct. 4 at 10:00 p.m. A female Ferris student contacted DPS for possible stalking. The alleged male student found the females snapchat and started to text the female. After further conversation the female wished for the talking to cease but the male continued. A simple case of one like the other, and the other did not like them back.
