Officers arrived and found both people had warrants for vehicle prowling and the female student was previously arrested for public urination. Both people were transported to Spokane County jail.

Just before midnight police were called to LA Hall because a CA noticed the smell of marijuana on the second floor. Officers arrived and asked to search the room, which the students allowed, but found no traces of marijuana.
