Police arrest urine- soaked male in UDF
At 3:14 a.m. Friday, officers responded to an unconscious male in UDF, 101 W. High St. Miami first-year Christopher Kurek was found sitting in a chair above a puddle of urine, resting his head on a table, according to OPD.
Witnesses reported Kurek had opened and consumed a bag of chips before paying. He had ordered a shake, but passed out at the counter as he attempted to pay with a credit card, according to OPD.
Attempts to rouse Kurek, who smelled of liquor, were initially unsuccessful. When Kurek awoke, his speech was incoherent and slurred. When the officer asked Kurek what his birthday was, Kurek responded, “the 10th,” according to OPD. He was found to be in possession of a fictitious Maryland driver license bearing his full name but different birthday.
Kurek was taken to McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital, where he was issued citations for disorderly conduct, intoxication, sales to and use by underage persons and certain acts prohibited, according to OPD.
Female recieves OVI in McDonalds drive thru
At 3:25 a.m. Saturday, two officers were dispatched to McDonalds in response to an unmoving vehicle in the drive thru.
According to OPD, when the officers approached the driver side window, the driver, junior Amarjit Kaur was wearing only one shoe and attempting to remove her jeans. Her excuse for disrobing was incoherent, according to OPD. An alcoholic odor came from inside the vehicle, according to OPD.
Kaur, with bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, used the driver side door to pull herself out of the vehicle. Upon failing each component of the field sobriety test, she was taken to OPD where she refused a breathalyzer test, according to OPD.
She claimed she had been drinking only for the first time since her previous arrest, which, incidentally, was another OVI. Her license was still suspended from the initial incident, according to OPD.
Kaur was cited for OVI and driving under suspension, according to OPD.
Bruno’s employee calls police on drunk male
At 2:12 a.m. Sunday, an officer was dispatched to Bruno’s Pizza, 31 E. High St., in response to an unwanted person on premises. As the officer arrived, he witnessed Bruno’s employees hauling sophomore John Schneeberger out of the establishment and onto to sidewalk, according to OPD.
Having dumped Schneeberger outside, the employees returned to work and the officer attempted to help the unsteady man get on his feet. His speech was slurred and he smelled of alcohol, according to OPD.
When the officer asked to see identification, Schneeberger showed a driver license still in his wallet. When asked to remove it, Schneeberger gracelessly squirmed to the side in an attempt to conceal the wallet, according to OPD. He proceeded to hand the officer a different license than the one he had previously seen, according to OPD. The initial license was retrieved and found to be fictitious.
Bruno’s chose not to press charges but would not like Schneeberger to return. He was cuffed and taken to OPD where he was cited for sales to and use by underage persons and certain acts prohibited. He was released, according to OPD.
