UD police to crack down on underage drinking this weekend

Published: Friday, February 17, 2017 @ 1:36 PM

UD Police said they'll maintain a heightened presence in student neighborhoods on Saturday.

The University of Dayton on Friday sent an email to students warning them there will be an “increased staff and police presence” in student neighborhoods on Saturday to better ensure safety.

The heightened police presence is in response to recently increased instances of “high-risk drinking, lack of civility with university staff, police officers and each other, damage to property, disorderly conduct and personal injury,” according to the email obtained by this news organization.

Police will be dispersing large crowds, citing underage drinking and enforcing occupancy limits, according to the email, which was signed by vice president for student development William Fischer and UD police chief Rodney Chatman.

“We ask for your cooperation as we work to provide a safe environment for all community members,” officials said in the email.

The email to students comes just two weeks after 23 UD students were arrested for underage drinking in a sting by the Ohio Division of Liquor Control.

“Normally we would do this privately, but given that the gossip industry cannot resist an opportunity to speculate and invent, we wanted to convey the truth directly,” the statement released by Aniston’s publicist Stephen Huvane said. “Whatever else is printed about us that is not directly from us, is someone else’s fictional narrative. Above all, we are determined to maintain the deep respect and love that we have for one another.”

The announcement was made “in an effort to reduce any further speculation,” according to the statement.

People reported that Aniston and Theroux met in 2008 but started dating in 2011. Theroux proposed to Aniston on his 41st birthday in August 2012. 

The pair had a surprise wedding in 2015, weeks before Theroux turned 44. 

According to People, the couple had been spending time apart. Aniston celebrated her 49th birthday without Theroux, but was with Courteney Cox and other friends in Los Angeles. Theroux was seen in New York.

Huvane  told The AP the decision to separate “was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year.” The couple has no children.

This was the first marriage for Theroux. He dated hair stylist Heidi Bivens for 14 years before they spit in 2011. Aniston was married to Brad Pitt from 2000 to 2005.

As for the future, Aniston and Theroux said they are “two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple, but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship.”
