Fly ball

A male student parked his 2007 white Toyota Tacoma in the Fitness Complex Parking Lot at approximately 1:30 p.m on April 30 and when he returned at 4:25 p.m. he reported that a baseball had struck and cracked his windshield, according to Chief of Campus Safety Jim Rudy.

There are signs posted in the parking lot warning vehicle owners of the danger of baseballs flying into the parking lot.

And stay out

Campus Safety officers responded to a call made by the maintenance staff on May 2 at 1:45 a.m. about a man inside the Student Success Center, according to Rudy. The man was later identified as homeless and had been warned about being on campus after hours before.

When Campus Safety asked him to leave, he refused, Rudy said. The Costa Mesa Police Department was contacted and they arrested the man for trespassing.

Don't call me

A female student reported that her ex-boyfriend contacted her on May 6 but she did not want to talk to him and he refused to leave, according to Rudy.

Campus Safety officers responded to the call and arrived at the soccer field where the ex-boyfriend had left the scene.

The Costa Mesa Police Department was called, Rudy said, but when officers arrived, they concluded that there was no crime to report.

Stray foot

A female student crawled under the driver side of her vehicle to try and get a kitten out from underneath her car in the Adams Avenue Parking Lot on May 5 at 2:35 p.m., according to Rudy.

While she was attempting to move the kitten, she stretched her left leg out. The parking spot next to her vehicle was vacant, prompting another student to think the spot was empty.

When the other student drove into the spot, they drove over the female students’ foot, Rudy said.

Once the student driver realized they had driven over something they immediately stopped. The female student was rushed to Hoag Hospital by her family.

The student driver said they did not see the female student lying on the ground, according to Jim Rudy.

Campus shiv

Campus Safety officers responded to a call about a student making a knife in the Welding Technology department on May 9 at 8:55 p.m., according to Rudy.

The call was made after other students and faculty members felt uncomfortable that he was forging the knife and refused to stop, Rudy said.

When Campus Safety officers and the Costa Mesa Police Department showed up, they asked the student to relinquish the home-made knife and he complied.

No threats were made by the student, Rudy said.
