Screwy Situation

At 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 15 a Cleveland State student reported to an officer patrolling the East 13th Street and Chester Avenue area that her right rear vent window had been smashed.
The student was parked near East 13th Street and Payne Avenue. She reported her messenger bag, containing her school books and a USB drive, was missing. She told the officer the bag had been in plain sight.
The officer drove the student back to her car and noticed a man sitting in the front seat. The student informed the officer that the man should not have been in her car.
The officer told the suspect to raise his hands and get out of the car. The suspect was handcuffed and put in the police car. The officer found a Flat-head and Phillips screwdriver in the car and the car starter was on the passenger seat with wires exposed. Neither of the screwdrivers belonged to the student and she reported the car starter had not been in the front seat when she left.
The suspect was taken to Central Prison and booked.

Parking Problems

On Oct. 20 around 3 a.m. an officer observed a car parked on the sidewalk near the Langston Apartments and saw a man sitting in the driver’s seat.
The officer asked the man for license and registration and ran a routine check. The check was cleared.
When the officer asked the man to step out of the car, he appeared to be unsteady and could not walk without support. The officer also detected the smell of alcohol.
The officer asked the man if he could perform a field sobriety check. The man responded he could not perform the test because he had consumed several beers and shots of liquor. He was then taken to Campus Safety and given a breathalyzer test. His blood alcohol content was .274.
The man was taken to Central Prison and booked for operating a vehicle under the influence.
