On the morning of Tuesday, August 27, 2013, a man in the South City Campus parking lot saw a vacant parking space. He began to drive toward the stall but lost it to a young lady who was closer.
According to the police report, the man, whose name was not released, jumped out of his vehicle, yelling, swearing and throwing change at her and her vehicle.
A bystander, who wished to remain anonymous, saw what was happening. He shouted at the guy to leave her alone and said that it was just a parking space.
The suspect jumped back in his vehicle and drove off, but didn’t get away so easily.
The bystander followed the suspect to the other end of the parking lot where the suspect parked and went into the school. The bystander got the license plate number. He returned to calm the victim and call police.
With the license plate number, officers were able to locate the suspect in the main building on campus.
When police confronted the suspect, he confessed to the alleged criminal mischief. Charges are pending.
In the Salt Lake Community College Student Code of Conduct, disorderly conduct is defined as any behavior that “distracts students from learning and/or obstructs the college’s goal of creating a safe and productive learning environment.”
In cases of alleged disorderly misconduct, the Code of Conduct lays out a procedure to follow. The Dean of Students reviews the incident and sitting down with the student, makes a decision about the future of the accused student and that student’s college career.
