The man was left passed out in a chair by another non-affiliated man who was let in by residents holding the door open for them. Police found the non-responsive man had a blood alcohol level of .3, which is a level at which death is a risk. He was transported to the Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, then the Fairbanks Correctional Center for protective custody. He was trespassed from all UAF property. The other man who left him there had gone into the SRC to play basketball and ran out the emergency exit doors when campus officers were searching for him. He was not found by police. Police said this is why residents should not open doors to let strangers in.

Don’t drive quick when it’s slick
Nov. 10- Alaska State Troopers called for campus police assistance due an accident involving two vehicles. A 22-year-old female student lost control of her car due to the slick roads.

The car continued to slide and crashed into another vehicle with two men inside. The woman was cited for basic speed, which means she was driving too fast for road conditions.
