Blotter: Man found sleeping in running vehicle, arrested for DWI

This blotter covers Oct. 24-Nov. 1. 

A man was found sleeping in his vehicle in the Lowry Woods parking lot and arrested for driving while intoxicated Oct. 25, according to a police report. 

An TWU Public Safety officer watched the 26-year-old man, who is not affiliated with the university, pull into the parking lot and park, partially blocking the entrance to the lot, according to the report. The officer approached the vehicle and found the man asleep behind the wheel while the car was running. 

Though the man told police he had not been drinking alcohol and had not taken any drugs, he consented to a blood draw. The man was taken to the Denton County Jail. 

If the blood test shows the man was intoxicated above the legal limit, campus police will file charges with the District Attorney, Lt. David Law said. 

South Hall — A South Hall resident told police she believed her Apple Watch was stolen from her dorm room the afternoon of Oct. 24, according to a police report. 

The 19-year-old told campus police she’d left the watch, which has a black band, on the windowsill in her dorm room just after four in the afternoon Saturday and noticed it missing around 4:40 p.m. The watch is valued at $465, according to the report. 

She told police she did not want to press charges. 

Stark Hall — A Stark Hall resident reported a bookbag with approximately $50 worth of items missing Oct. 27, according to a police report. 

The 18-year-old resident called police at 8:59 p.m. Tuesday to report the bag missing. She told police she’d been gone since around 7 p.m. Sunday evening and returned at 8 p.m. Tuesday to find it missing from her dorm room. 

Police observed no signs of forced entry, and her roommate said she did not know what happened to the bag, according to the report. 

The missing brown bag contained bread, canned tuna, chips, dog treats, honey, hot cocoa, mayonnaise and tea, the resident told police. 

The caller does not want to press charges, so the case has been closed, Law said. 

Response activity – TWU’s Department of Public Safety responded to 358 dispatched and officer-initiated calls between Oct. 24 and Nov. 1.
