OCCC Safety and Security handled an incident of public drinking this past week.
At 4:40 p.m. April 10, Officer Jeffrey Porter said, while on patrol, he noticed what looked like a can of alcohol on the hood of a car parked near the soccer field.
According to a report, Porter stopped and confirmed the can was Budweiser beer. He then asked the men around the vehicle who it belonged to.
One of the men confirmed it was his. Because of a language barrier, Porter was assisted by a member of the soccer team in communicating with the men.
Porter reported he explained alcohol is not allowed on campus, and the individuals apologized and left. No information was collected.
“The situation was calm and under control,” Porter said in his report. “I didn’t want to escalate the situation since I was by myself, with no back-up.”
