Police officer escorts student from classroom

by Editor-in-Chief Jasmine Fleming

UNA Police escorted a student out of a biology class in the Science and Technology Building Feb. 23, according to officials.

UNA Police received a “send police” alert from a computer in the classroom, and an officer responded, said Deputy Chief of Police Mark Parker.

“It was alleged to the officer that there was a disruptive student in the classroom,” Parker said. “The officer asked the student to step outside the classroom and talk to him, and the student complied.”

Because the case is currently with the Office of Student Conduct, Parker will not release any names, he said.

He said the student “was not upset over the circumstances.”

Parker said there was not an arrest and that no one was taken into custody.
