Some people just can’t take a hint.
After repeated talks by officers with the University Police Department, 20-year-old Brandon Ramsey was banned from the Texas A&M University-Commerce campus after his ex-girlfriend filed charges against him.
“He just kept texting and texting her,” Jason Bone, crime information officer for the UPD said. “He just didn’t get the hint I guess.”
Ramsey had been asked as recently as last week to stop communicating with her, and had been asked in previous months as well.
Many students who take summer courses at A&M-Commerce are teachers and professionals simply looking to further their careers.
Others, not so much.
On July 7, an officer with the University Police Department was dispatched to meet the housing director of Prairie Crossing apartments, in reference to suspected marijuana.
On inspection, the officer said he believed it to be a three gram plastic baggie of marijuana.
According to the housing director, it is unknown who owns it or left it lying in a breezeway.
The marijuana was taken back to the UPD and destroyed after being weighed and photographed by officers.
In other odd news, an A&M-Commerce student called the UPD after he thought he was bitten by a poisonous snake he found on top of his backpack at the parking lot of the Performing Arts Center on campus.
“AMR was called in and found he wasn’t really bit,” Bone said. “They took the snake and dumped it into the woods.”
The snake turned out to be a simple rat snake.
Some people just can’t take a hint.
