On Nov. 8 at 12:41 a.m., EPD responded to a call regarding five to six individuals sitting on top of Peavine II parking deck. The complainant, an Emory student, said that the group was sitting on the deck in an inaccessible area and screaming obscenities. Officers arrived on the scene and made contact with five Emory students climbing down a ladder that leads to the top of the elevator shaft of the parking deck. The individuals said they were hanging out, getting fresh air and listening to music. Officers told them they could continue to hang out but could not climb into restricted areas due to safety concerns. Officers did not see any signs of alcohol or drug use. Campus Life was notified.  

On Nov. 11 at 12:42 a.m., EPD responded to a call regarding a suspicious vehicle and duty striking of a fixed object in the University Residential Center parking deck. The complainant, an Emory student, reported three possibly intoxicated individuals in a white truck that hit a pole. The truck driver then reportedly drove to the third level of the deck. Officers arrived on the scene and searched for the vehicle and any damage. EPD found a vehicle with extensive front damage that matched the vehicle description provided by the complainant. Officers spoke with the Emory student with whom the vehicle’s parking tag was registered. Another EPD officer reviewed video footage and observing the truck enter the deck at 12:38 a.m. undamaged. The student told the officer that he had been in bed all night and had not driven much that day. When asked if he had been in an accident, the student said no. When officers told him they had video footage of the incident, he admitted he and two friends had been in the vehicle that evening, but said that he was in the passenger seat asleep and had woken up when they had hit the pole. Upon further questioning, the student admitted he was awake in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
