Incident Occurs at Hubbard Hall on First Week of Classes

photo-8(AUGUST 29, 2013)–Three days after Reinhardt University opened for the fall semester, on August 22d, police were called to investigate an “unknown trouble” call at 11:08 pm at Hubbard Hall on the main campus in Waleska. Upon arrival, the responding officer met with the caller, a Resident Assistant, and was shown an injured male student sitting on the stairwell at the right side of Hubbard Hall.

The student was bleeding from his head and face, and had swelling around his eyes and lips. The student was unable to speak. However, upon inquiring as to the current state of the student, the officer proceeded to ask if he had fallen or if he had been pushed. The student then extended his arms outward, indicating that he had been pushed. The officer asked again if he had been pushed, and the student nodded his head, “yes.”

The responding officer claimed to have smelled alcohol coming from the area around the student and proceeded to ask the student if he had been drinking. Once again, the student nodded his head, “yes.” The Fire Department/EMS then arrived on scene to treat the injured student.

After speaking to several bystanders, the officer concluded that the student had fallen down a flight of stairs at Hubbard Hall and that no crime had taken place. He then turned matters over to Reinhardt Public Safety.
