A driver traveling the wrong way down Fourth Street Southeast jumped over a 1-foot retaining wall into a University of Minnesota parking lot early Sunday morning, according to a University police report. Jordan Hart, 23, a University student, was behind the wheel. University police officers observed him turn abruptly halfway down the block, run over the sidewalk, jump the retaining wall and come to a stop in the lot, the report said. After talking with Hart, the officers gave him a breathalyzer test, according to University police Deputy Chief Chuck Miner. The test showed that HartâÄôs blood-alcohol content was .19 percent, Miner said. The legal limit for blood-alcohol content is .08 for Minnesota drivers. Hart was arrested for third-degree DWI and taken to Hennepin County Jail. He was described as cooperative in the report. âÄòIâÄôm going to shoot the city!âÄô A man was arrested for disorderly conduct early Friday morning after he shouted, âÄúIâÄôm going to shoot the city!âÄù near a crowd of people in front of Blarney Pub and Grill, according to a University police report. Officers arrived on scene responding to a call regarding an intoxicated person, the report said. Paul Noess, 23, a University student, was told to leave by the officers after they spoke with him briefly, according to the report. The report said Noess walked about half a block and leaned against a building for around five minutes. The officers watched as Noess returned to the scene, according to the report. The officers approached Noess again. Noess saw the officers walking toward him and he started to walk away, the report said. Noess then turned around and yelled, âÄúIâÄôm going to shoot the city!âÄù Noess was arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to Hennepin County Detox, Miner said. Resident hall vandalism A University student and resident at Bailey Hall called the police Friday night after noticing the word âÄúbitchâÄù in bold black letters written across her door, according to a University police report. When officers arrived, the student showed them the writing and that someone had smeared Vaseline lotion and ice cream all over the door, according to the report. Miner said University police see several cases of this kind of damage to property every year. He said it generally occurs in residence halls. The writing was about 8 inches across and about 3 inches high and written in black permanent marker, the report said. Miner said that no matter what you write on someone elseâÄôs property, it is considered vandalism. Someone has to clean it off or paint over it, which means it costs someone else time or money, he said.
