1. A vehicle being driven in an erratic fashion in Park Lot by two undergraduate students was spotted by a Security Supervisor on Sunday, Sept. 18, at 10:05 p.m.

According to UR Security Investigator Daniel Lafferty, it was surmised that the driver only had a learner’s permit and was not attending driving lessons. The car’s passenger also did not have a license either. The driver claimed that she was showing the passenger that she could drive.

Officers had the driver park the vehicle and contacted the owner of the car, another undergraduate student. The owner explained that he had lent the car to the driver but was unaware that she did not have a license. He was subsequently told where his car was and that the driver could not bring it back to him.
