99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall…

Tufts University Police Department (TUPD) responded at 1:34 a.m. on Mar. 12 to Hill Hall for a report of an intoxicated male.

“He stated that he had drank a lot of beers,” TUPD Sgt. Robert McCarthy said. The student was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital in Medford for further treatment.

Dangerous Mix

TUPD was notified at 2:14 a.m. on Mar. 13 that an inebriated male in Houston Hall required medical attention.

The student told officers that he had been drinking whiskey, tequila and vodka.

McCarthy said that this combination is typically very harmful for students and often results in hospitalization. The student was transported to Lawrence Memorial Hospital.

What Name?

TUPD officers received a call at 6:42 p.m. on Mar. 13 from a staff person at Tisch Library reporting that there was a person in the media center, which had closed earlier at 6 p.m.     “Basically, that person wouldn’t leave the area,” McCarthy said.

Officers who spoke to the person discovered that he was not affiliated with Tufts. The man refused to leave the area or show identification.

“We asked him what his last name was and he said he didn’t have one,” McCarthy said. Officers then arrested the man for trespassing and transported him to the custody of the Somerville Police. He was given a trespass warning and told not to return to Tufts.
