CMU Police arrest student in Kessler Hall believed to be on LSD
A Central Michigan University student is lodged in Isabella County Jail following an altercation with police officers Wednesday night in Kessler Hall.
CMU Police Chief Bill Yeagley said his department received a phone call at about 10:30 p.m. regarding a disorderly student in the lobby of Kessler Hall who was suspected to be on LSD.
When an officer arrived to the scene, he made contact with the individual, and as he was patting him down the suspect headbutted the officer, Yeagley said. When a second officer arrived, they wrestled the suspect to the ground in order to gain control.
Yeagley declined to provide any more details on the suspect Thursday.
Steve Smith, director of public relations at CMU, said at one point during the altercation the suspect collapsed and stopped breathing.
“The suspect just went limb all of a sudden and became unresponsive,” Yeagley said. “The officers checked his vitals and saw he wasn’t breathing and administered first aid.”
CMU officers immediately administered CPR and revived the suspect, who was then handcuffed and transported to McLaren Central Michigan Health Care for treatment, Smith said.
“The doctors said the young man is very lucky the police were there because they saved his life,” Yeagley said. “It speaks volumes about how professional the officers are here.”
Once medical personnel monitored the individual and approved his leave, he was then taken to the Isabella County Jail.
Yeagley said the prosecutor’s office charged the individual with three felonies: one count of attempt to disarm a police officer, a 10-year felony, and two counts of resisting or obstructing police, each of which are up to two year felonies.
In addition, the individual was also charged with two misdemeanor acts: one for the use of a controlled substance, a six-month misdemeanor, and one count of simple assault, a 93-day misdemeanor charge.
Yeagley said calls regarding individuals on drugs such as LSD are fairly rare at CMU. He said it’s even more rare for a suspect to act in the manner this individual did, by assaulting an officer.
“LSD is a crazy drug, it’s not predictable,” Yeagley said. “You can become violent like this individual did. It creates a lot of negative effects.”
