    GUN CONTROL

    A hall advisor in Deseret Towers R Hall confiscated a rifle from one of the residents Sat., March 11 at approximately 9 p.m.

    The resident was playing with an old World War II Army rifle when the hall advisor walked by the room. She told him having a gun in the dorm is against University policy and he needed to check it into a locker at the front office. The resident became very irate and refused to check the gun in. The gun was not loaded and the advisor was able to get the resident to retire the gun with a bit of persuasion.

    The resident had no criminal intentions. The rifle had been loaned to him by a friend to “check out.” No charges were issued.

    ASSAULTS

    An angry student called the Accounts Office around 2 p.m. on March 9 to inquire why he had a hold on his records. He was extremely rude to the secretary and threatened to hit her administrator.

    A student was allegedly assaulted by a faculty member in a road rage incident Monday morning March 13. The faculty member was driving through lot 55 near the Student Auxilary Services. He noticed a large BYU truck heading to-ward him and had to swerve to get out of the way. The truck was driven by a BYU student.

    The faculty member stopped his car and made the student get out of the truck. The student reported to University Police that the faculty member “scraped his upper lip with his hand.” The faculty recalled that he yelled, but did not touch the student. The incident is still under investigation.
