The first week of August had campus police officers busy.

At 10 p.m. Aug. 6, Officer Patrick Martino arrested Lynn Michelle Bahena for driving without a license after Martino pulled her over for failing to stop at a stop sign located at the intersection of Faculty Circle and the secondary May Avenue entrance.

Martino reported Bahena had a state ID but no driver’s license and the car she was driving was registered to Ben’s Auto.

Bahena told the officer she had owned the car for two years but had failed to have the title switched to her name.

According to the report, Martino transported Bahena to the Oklahoma County Detention Center.

On Aug. 7, a report of someone looking at pornography on a library computer turned into an arrest. After officers Tim Harris and Arnold Nelson did a check of Logan Scott Carter, the man was arrested for outstanding warrants in Oklahoma City and Cleveland County.

Carter was released to the Oklahoma City Marshall’s Office.

A fender bender accident at the intersection of Faculty Circle and Keels Boulevard left one student calling for a tow on Aug. 9.

Officer David Madden arrived on the scene at 3:39 p.m. to find a car with its hazard lights on, blocking the outside, inbound lane of Keels Boulevard and the southbound lane of Faculty Circle.

Charles Peterson told the officer he was traveling north on Faculty Circle.

He said he stopped at the stop sign, observed the yield sign in the median and proceeded through the intersection, when the BMW driven by student Amanda Jenson hit his GMC vehicle. Peterson said he didn’t see the BMW traveling westbound in the inside lane of Keels Boulevard.

The BMW’s front driver side struck the GMC in front of the rear tire on the passenger side.
