Several University students had serious alcohol troubles this week, according to police reports.

One male student was so intoxicated he passed out and was taken by an ambulance to Fairview-University Medical Center.

Another female student in Territorial Hall was also found unconscious, vomiting and unable to take care of herself. She was taken to Hennepin County Chemical Health Services, where she stayed until she recovered.

One other male student was found in a puddle of his vomit, smelling of alcohol. He was also taken to Fairview to recover.

Police gave all three students tickets for underage drinking.

Another group of students had an alcohol-related run-in with police this week.

Four first-year students were throwing a bicycle around in the middle of the street outside Centennial Hall when police approached them and gave them underage drinking tickets.

In total, 25 underage drinking cases have been reported sinceFriday.

Although drinking troubles remained about the same as last week, thefts declined.

Nine bikes were reported stolen this week – half of what was reported last week. There were also six reports of other thefts, ranging from credit cards to backpacks.

In other police news, a trespasser was reported in Moos Tower last week. Officers found an individual who was not a student, staff member or employee of the University sleeping in the back of an auditorium on the second floor. He admitted to being homeless and was issued a warning.
