Police detain duo after man drags female
Around 2:30 a.m. Saturday, an Oxford police officer was driving on High Street and passed Heavy Hands Bar. He observed a white female being dragged by a white male. The female appeared to be incoherent. The officer stopped the cruiser to check on the welfare of the female. Before he could, however, the male had pushed her into a waiting car and told the driver to, “Go, go, go!” The driver did not leave as the officer had yelled at him not to and the officer approached the male and female. He asked both people for their IDs. The woman could not provide him one and the male eventually gave the officer a Missouri driver’s license. The male was identified as Miami University sophomore Kurt Wiedeman, 20. Both people were taken to the Oxford Police Department and it was revealed that the woman was first-year Lauren D’Errico. At OPD, D’Errico was giggling incessantly and apparently talking to people who were not present in the building. She was cited for underage drinking. Wiedeman was cited for obstructing official business.
Male vomits and urinates in parking lot
Around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, an Oxford police officer responded to a call from an employee at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital regarding two people urinating and vomiting in the middle of the parking lot. The officer inspected a vehicle and found an opened bottle of Hypnotiq on the floorboard. Throughout the night, the officer checked on the vehicle and around 2:25 a.m., he saw three males returning to the car. He approached the vehicle and one person fled but the officer made contact with Taylor Luckett, 19. He asked Luckett if he urinated in the lot but he said it couldn’t have been because he “had been at Brick Street [Bar and Grill] for hours.” Luckett was charged with underage drinking and Luckett was charged with an open container in a moving vehicle. Neither was charged with urinating since the officer had not seen them do it.
