Exhibition captivates onlookers on Academic Quad

Officers arrived in front of the entrance of Rush Rhees library at 3:24 p.m. last Thursday to find a student handcuffed by one arm to a wooden stock, according to UR Security Investigator Dan Lafferty.

The student’s other hand was free but handcuffed, with the other end of the handcuff left dangling. The student was not wearing a shirt.

Security officers had responded to a report that the student was trying to hang himself. When they arrived, a staff member in the area informed the officers that the student was performing a theatrical skit.
