Description

Forty University of Richmond students were caught streaking in front of North and South Court dormitories. A Richmond College student was arrested by University police for participating in the “obscene” activity that was evidently against the UR policy statement. Another Richmond College student was arrested for “tampering with an auto.” A mob of approximately 400 Richmond students surrounded the police car and began to vandalize the vehicle; increasingly becoming rowdy. Campus police made the decision to call Richmond city police as back-up due to the increasing crowd of upset students. Vice President of Student Affairs, Dr. William H. Leftwich, arrived at the scene and was also a victim to the mob as his car was similarly abused. The University Student Government Association, alongside many other student groups on campus, has warned the University to appropriately handle the situation of the students’ arrests. The University has reminded students that streaking is deemed inappropriate by university policies and by the law of the State of Virginia.
