Update: Both men, according to Hooper, had charges of criminal trespass filed against them.
Two people were taken into custody in Caples Residence Hall by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office early this morning, Director of Campus Safety and Security Bob Hooper has confirmed to The Thrill. The men were not students.
A group of students in the lobby reported seeing two men led out of the elevator in handcuffs by sheriff’s deputies around 1:25 a.m. Campus Safety vehicles, including an SUV and a golf cart, were mixed in with the Sheriff’s vehicles parked in the fire lane behind Caples around the time of the arrest. By 1:35 a.m., the officers had all left the area.
The Thrill will update this story as more information becomes available.
