Part of my job involves reading the daily summaries from University of the Pacific’s Public Safety Media Log. It’s often dry and/or unsubstantial; the stuff you’d expect to see on a college campus. Many of the incidents revolve around parties, vehicle break-ins and vagrants going Dumpster diving.
At times there are more serious offenses. Thankfully, the report sent Friday (which details items from Thurs., Aug. 2) was not one of those days.
Instead, it offered a lighthearted gem I get to share with you. I wouldn’t call whomever did this a “comedic genius” but I would say their mind is delightfully twisted.
Below, word for word, is the excerpt from that report which caught my attention.
Location : Grace Covell Hall
Time: 10:42 p.m.
“RP (Caller) stated that she spotted a male subject inside the kiosk who appeared to be urinating …officers responded and checked the area…It turned out to be a prank involving a pair of pants and a set of shoes over a puddle of water.”
I have to imagine the responding officer even laughed a bit and shook his/her head after arriving on scene. I’ve always applauded pranks offering an element of creativity and originality, and this one definitely fits into that category.
If only there was a photo.
