Homecoming this year brought in a number of students, alumni and citizens of the community to celebrate another year of existence for UVa-Wise.
With a number of celebrations in honor of the college’s 60th anniversary and the many returning alumni, campus police were prepared to act if any trouble arose.
During the Homecoming Dance that began at 10 p.m. Saturday night police acted when they saw a situation that needed attention.
A student, who isn’t a student of UVa-Wise, was arrested, said Campus Chief of Police and Director of Public Safety Ronnie Shortt.
20-year-old Christopher James Goodman was observed slumped over during the dance, police said.
When he stood he was very unsteady on his feet and then went outside and began to vomit, Shortt said.
Goodman was arrested by campus police officers and charged with under-age possession of alcohol by consumption.
He was arrested without resistance or complications, Shortt said.
There have been student reports of other students being given breathalyzer tests, but so far no official reports have been made.
Reports from the ABC officer Tuesday morning showed two additional arrests, one for underage possession, the other for public intoxication.
