Man arrested after he's found urinating in janitor's closet in U-M's West Quad
A man found urinating in a janitor’s closet at the University of Michigan’s West Quadrangle dormitory Friday night was arrested for illegal entry, according to police.
University of Michigan Department of Public Safety spokesperson Diane Brown said the man followed a resident into the building just before 11:30 p.m. Friday at the dorm, 541 Thompson St.
The man refused to tell police who he was and was arrested for illegally entering the building and failing to identify himself, Brown said. The man was eventually identified and has been released pending a warrant authorization, Brown said.
Access to university residence halls is controlled by electronic key cards given to residents and there are video cameras at each building’s entrance, according to a university website.
Brown said she wasn’t sure why the man decided to urinate in the closet. In order to use most dorm bathrooms, a keycard is required.
The man was not affiliated with the university, Brown said.
