On Friday, two 19-year-old female students were caught urinating on a pillar under the bridge on South College Avenue around 11:30 p.m., Newark police spokesman MCpl. Gerald Bryda said. When officers who were patrolling the area approached the suspects, they attempted to flee, he said. Their escape plan was unsuccessful, and the ladies were charged with disorderly conduct, hazardous conditions and underage drinking, Bryda said.
At 11:47 p.m. that night, police saw an 18-year-old male student urinating five feet away from the sidewalk on South Chapel Street, Bryda said. Officers on patrol took the suspect into custody and charged him with disorderly conduct, hazardous conditions, underage drinking and possession of an open container of alcohol, he said.
