This Thursday, an LSU student was arrested, accused of breaking into the Tiger Stadium on not one but two separate occasions and in turn, damaging the field.
Wondering how a nineteen-year-old goes about damaging a football field's worth of space? Well, ofcourse, he has to be riding an ATV.
An esteemed member of Delta Chi, Clayton Fleetwood, who hails originally from New Jersey, was brought into the station and held on counts of simple burglary, criminal trespassing, and two counts of unauthorized use of a movable.
The incidents occurred on Jan. 21, and again on Feb. 8, according to the LSU Police Department. Both took place in the late evening hours, perhaps an attempt not to be seen. Unfortunately for Fleetwood, as mentioned in the arrest report, the college student can be seen on full view, according to video surveillance.
To make matters worse for Fleetwood, the video surveillance also caught him riding a Kawasaki Mule ATV on the field which was being fixed up at the time. Fleetwood's joyride has forced construction to start from scratch, their progress shot by the ruts and damage caused by the ATV. Contractors explain the repeating of the process will cost up to $8000.
Police note Fleetwood was captured on surveillance during one of the disturbances, seen with another unidentified person. The two were seen "talking, kissing, and drinking what appear to be alcoholic beverages." Fleetwood was later namedwhen a series of anonymous calls were made and police were able to recognize Fleetwood on the surveillance tapes by his Tiger ID card.
Though he was arrested Feb. 27 and charged in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, Fleetwood has since been let out on a $10,000 bond.
