Two of those events occurred within an hour of one another early Tuesday morning.
In the first incident, staff members at the Wexner Center for the Arts reported disorderly conduct on Tuesday at about 1:30 a.m. An intoxicated male, wearing no shirt and who appeared to have been beaten up, was sitting on a planter bench near 15th Avenue and North High Street. The man admitted to consuming alcohol, had slurred speech, glassy eyes and was “quite unsteady on his feet,” according to a University Police report.
The man refused medical treatment for visible bruising and small cuts and refused to tell officers how he had obtained these, according to a University Police report. After providing information on himself, an officer drove the man to his friends house where he said his car was parked. His friend agreed to watch over him and he was advised not to drive.
Less than half an hour later, a staff member at Mershon Auditorium reported disorderly conduct for a male who was sitting upright at a bench near 17th Avenue and North High Street who appeared to be asleep or unconscious. An officer woke the man up and he admitted he had been drinking but agreed to leave after being prompted by an officer, according to a University Police report.
Another incident of disorderly conduct was reported at Ross Heart Hospital, part of the Wexner Medical Center located at 452 W. 10th Ave., on July 11.
A day earlier in another part of the Wexner Medical Center, a warrant was filed after a female staff member reported assault at OSU Hospitals East, located at 1492 E. Broad Street, on July 10 around 1 a.m.
A 49-year-old male was charged with obstructing official business and resisting arrest near Scott House on Sunday at about 3:30 a.m. Property related to the incident included a 1991 black Ford station wagon owned by the man and a full two-gallon gas can. The man was suspected to be under the influence of alcohol, according to a University Police report.
In addition, 23 total thefts were reported on OSU’s campus this week.
