OPD cites junior for passing out in car

At around 3 a.m. Saturday, a bystander reportedly flagged down an Oxford Police Department (OPD) officer at McDonald’s in reference to a vehicle that had run off the drive thru.

The officer reportedly found a red Buick with two tires off the drive several feet from the building. The car was reportedly still in drive with a female driver passed out behind the wheel.

The officer reportedly entered the vehicle, turned off the car and put it in park. While the officer was looking for her identification, the driver reportedly woke up and was identified as Miami University junior Olivia Mann.

Mann was reportedly asked to step out of the car, where she told the officer she had “a few drinks.”

Mann reportedly had the odor of alcohol on her breath and performed poorly on field sobriety tests.

Mann was arrested and taken to OPD, where she was administered a breath test and found to have a blood alcohol content of .145.

Mann was cited for operating a vehicle while intoxicated and reckless driving.

First-year runs around house, breaks window

At around 11 p.m. Saturday, officers were dispatched to 100 W. Church St. in response to a male trying to enter the residence.

A male described as wearing a white shirt and white hat was reportedly banging on the front door then running around the house and banging on the back door.

The male also reportedly broke a window in the front of the residence.

When officers arrived, they reportedly found a male matching the description in the rear of the house. When he saw officers, the suspect reportedly ran around to the front of the house.

Officers reportedly told the male to stop running, but he continued to run around the house. The male was reportedly cornered in the front of the house, where he was identified as Miami University first-year Conor Mathews.

Mathews reportedly had blood on his clothes and hand. A resident of the house came outside and reportedly identified Mathews as her roommate’s brother.

Mathews reportedly had the odor of alcohol on his breath and slurred speech.

He was arrested and taken to the Oxford Police Department, where he reportedly told officers he knew his sister was not home, but he wanted to get into the residence anyway.

Mathews also reportedly told officers he did not know why he ran, but he guessed he “was just scared.”

Mathews reportedly refused medical treatment and was transported to Butler County Jail. He was cited for underage intoxication, criminal mischief and obstructing official business.

Detectives reportedly found a small amount of marijuana in the residence along with pipes, scales and other drug paraphernalia.
