UNC-Chapel Hill seal on sidewalk

— Campus police at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill said they arrested a male student who broke into two apartments early Sunday, apparently looking for a place to sleep.

In a message on the “Alert Carolina” notification system, police said they went to a second-floor apartment at Granville Towers West about 2 a.m. and spoke with a female student who said she awoke to find the man asleep in her bed. She asked him to leave, and he did without incident.

Police said the unidentified man then went into the room of another female resident and tried to lie down in her bed. He was again told to leave.

The suspect tried to enter several more rooms on the same hall before campus police officers arrested him on two counts of breaking and entering. He was held at the Orange County jail on a secured bond.

    I had a friend in College to do this. His apt was the next one over. The police tapped him on his head with a flashlight and drove him home. I had another friend whose parents met like this. His dad was drunk and stumbled into the wrong room. lol.

    Well at last he has a place to sleep. They don't say here, but this was after a long Saturday night. Maybe he "forgot" where he lives? Here's your hint college kids: don't do that.
