Bad lock

A bike was reported stolen April 9 around 4 p.m. at the bike racks on the south side of Watson Hall, John Farmer, chief of Campus Safety said.

The turquoise beach cruiser had a lock, but it was only loosely veiled over the bike in an attempt to ward off thieves.

The security camera footage was reviewed, but to no avail.

A report was filed online with the Costa Mesa Police Department.

Dance: part I

A verbal disturbance was reported April 10 outside dance room B of the Basil H. Peterson Gym.

A man was found by a Campus Safety officer arguing with the instructor and recording with his cellphone, Farmer said.

The male claimed to waiting for his girlfriend and threatened to sue the instructor for calling the police.

The dance instructor reported that the male walked into the classroom, sat down and was asked to leave. The man left, but repeatedly walked in front of the two entrances of the room and peered into the doors, distracting the students.

The man was reported to have left campus at 5:30 p.m. by his own will. The man was aggressive but compliant, Farmer said.

Dance: part II

A female student reported strange behavior from a male student in his 50s near the Learning Resources Center, computer center and dance rooms Sunday and Monday.

The student was reported to have stuck his head into a dance class and made nonsensical comments. A report was filed.

If future incidences occur, disciplinary action could be taken by the dean of students, Farmer said.


A diabetic male student was transported from the Math, Business and Computing Center to Hoag Hospital at 6:30 p.m. on April 11.

Check yo'self
