Campus police arrested a student for public intoxication after responding to a disturbance in Tech Village on April 8, according to a police report. 

Tucker Eckenrode, 19, has been charged with public intoxication and underage consumption of alcohol, according to the report.

Sgt. David Harris requested back-up after hearing a disturbance coming from Tech Village while he was re-fueling his squad car, according to the report.

Officer Tony Taylor responded and witnessed several men fighting in the street in front of an apartment building. After breaking up the scuffle, Taylor heard yelling coming from the apartment where he saw three men in the middle of a fight, according to the report.

In the report, Taylor said he separated the men and restrained Eckenrode.

Harris, who arrived on the scene with the resident assistant on duty, said he noticed alcoholic beverages, drug paraphernalia and a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana in the apartment, according to the report.

Eckenrode’s court date is set for 9 a.m. on May 11.
