The officer noticed a man matching the description swaying and staggering on James E. Rogers Way, across from the residence hall. The officer remembered the man had been previously warned for trespassing on campus. The officer asked the man if he was OK, but the man did not respond. The officer told the man he had an active exclusionary order from the UA and he was not supposed to be on campus. The man had an odor of intoxicants coming from his mouth.
