Sophomore passes out in running car

At around 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Oxford Police Department officers responded to a call regarding a running SUV parked in the driveway of 5205 College Corner Pike.

Officers reportedly found a Lexus SUV idling in the driveway with the headlights on and observed a male passed out in the driver’s seat.

Officers reportedly banged on the window, but the male did not respond.

According to police reports, the officers opened the driver’s side door and smelled a strong odor of alcohol.

The officers were reportedly unable to wake the male, who was later identified as Miami University sophomore Brock Lucchese, 20.

When the officers finally woke Lucchese, he reportedly answered multiple questions with unintelligible replies.

According to police reports, when officers asked Lucchese where he lived, he replied, “Jackson and Costa Rica.”

Officers reportedly noticed a six-pack of Elephant beer in the back seat of the vehicle and took Lucchese into custody.

Lucchese was reportedly given a breath test, which showed he had a blood alcohol content of 0.15.

Lucchese was cited for underage possession of alcohol and physical control before being released.

OPD issues citation to junior carrying chair

At around 2 a.m. Monday, an Oxford Police Department officer on patrol at the corner of Bishop and Vine streets witnessed a male crossing the street with a lawn chair in one hand and a 30 pack of Natural Light beer in the other.

The officer reportedly stopped the male, later identified as Miami University junior Gregory Miller, and asked him where he had gotten the chair. Miller reportedly told the officer he had found it on the side of the road.

When asked for identification, Miller reportedly told the officer he did not have his ID on him, but “had his brother’s.”

According to police reports, Miller was arrested when the officer discovered he was 20 years old.

The officer then reportedly found Miller’s Maryland driver’s license in his wallet along with a Florida driver’s license Miller said he thought he had lost.

Miller was cited for underage possession of alcohol and possession of a fake ID before he was released.

Male asks for arrest, litters in front of officer

At around 2 a.m. Sunday, Oxford Police Department officers in The Wood’s Bar reportedly had someone in custody when a male approached them.

The male, later identified as William Steiden III, was reportedly asked to stay back multiple times but continued to tell officers to arrest him instead of the person they had in custody.

Officers reportedly asked Steiden to leave, but he continued to talk before ripping a wristband off his wrist and dropping it on the ground.

Officers reportedly told Steiden he had littered and asked him for identification.

Steiden reportedly produced a Kentucky driver’s license that said he was 20 years old.

Steiden reportedly had the odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath and bloodshot eyes.

Steiden also reportedly told officers he “could have run away but stuck around for a friend.”

Steiden was cited for underage intoxication and littering before he was released.
