Male steps through two apartment ceilings
At 10:37 p.m. Friday officers responded to 1007 Arrowhead Dr. Apt. 9B after a foot erupted through a third-floor unit’s ceiling. The foot was attached to Jeffrey Scott, 21 years old of Oxford, who had been using a vacant third floor apartment to shower after his unit lost hot water, according to OPD. He had suitable permission to do so. After that shower also proved cold, an intoxicated Scott clothed himself and climbed into the attic to follow the hot water line, according to OPD.
In the dark attic without a flashlight, Scott missed a truss and stepped through the ceiling. His jeans and boot were visible to a startled Miami graduate student in unit 9B. Attempting to return to his borrowed unit, Scott again stepped through the ceiling, this time into unit 10B, occupied by a Miami senior. Scott’s foot collided with a floor lamp and knocked out the bulb, plunging the room into darkness.
Scott returned to the bathroom and took his shower. He was later identified exiting the laundry room, partly by his boot and pant, according to OPD. He did not appear dirty, but had a rancid tank top stuffed in his pocket and readily admitted to being intoxicated, according to OPD. He was charged with criminal trespassing and criminal mischief, according to OPD. He admitted to falling though the ceiling on two occasions, according to OPD.
