Man arrested on GRCC campus, lodged at Kent County Correctional Facility

At 7:27 a.m. Feb. 8, a possible trespasser was reported to the Grand Rapids Community College police department after a GRCC custodian observed a man smelling of alcohol lingering outside the men’s restroom on the first floor of the GRCC Student Center.

GRCC police officers then ventured to the restroom to follow up with the report. They initially did not see anyone in the bathroom of the Student Center.

When they turned the lights on and looked around in the stalls, they found a fully clothed man sleeping in the handicap stall. The officers then woke up the man who they recognized as a non GRCC student who they have had multiple encounters with for trespassing on campus.

One of the officers told the man he could not be on GRCC property and told him to stand up because he was under arrest for repeated trespassing violations.

The officers escorted the man back to the GRCC police department, where they issued him a misdemeanor for a violation of city ordinance. They then brought him to the Kent County Correctional Facility for lodging.
