.Police stopped a Minneapolis woman for driving the wrong way on a one-way street Sunday.

The officer who stopped her smelled alcohol on the woman’s breath and gave her a breathalyzer, according to the report. Her blood alcohol level was at .12 percent.

The woman also had six bags of marijuana and several ecstasy pills in her car.

She was taken to Hennepin County Jail.

There were eight other alcohol-related violations over the weekend. Three people were cited for illegal possession of fireworks.

Trespassing on campus

University police found a 35-year-old man sleeping in

the Mechanical Engineering Building on Wednesday morning.

The man, described in the report as a “vagrant”, was drunk and had a bottle of brandy in his pocket, according to the report. The police found the man in a locked room, according to the report.

University Deputy Chief of Police Steve Johnson said people will sometimes steal keys or prop doors open to get into locked rooms.

Police issued the man a trespass warning to prohibit him from entering any East Bank building for 30 days.

Johnson said the police keep track of people who have trespass warnings. He said if those people trespass again while the warning is in effect, they can be arrested.

Property damage

A University student and a Canadian citizen were cited for damaging University property at approximately 2 a.m. Thursday.

Police on bike patrol saw the two throwing a metal chair around the Williamson Hall plaza, according to a police report.

Johnson called the damage “senseless.”

“It’s a cost for everybody,” he said. The estimated value of the chair is $50.
