On May 15, on officer on patrol noticed two males walking north on Fowler Street toward Ferst Drive. The officer noticed that the two male subjects were carrying something in their arms. The officer believed the object to be a sign from an unknown place. Upon noticing the officer, the two male subjects began to run. One of the two ran toward Fourth Street, while the other made his way west on Ferst Drive toward Techwood Drive. The latter individual threw the sign to the side of the Delta Chi Fraternity house while trying to run away from the officers.
The officer then saw a third individual approaching him. He questioned the individual, who stated that he knew the two previous subjects, and that they had informed him that they had climbed over Gate 2 at Bobby Dodd Stadium and stolen the “T” off the signage in the south endzone that read “Georgia Tech.” The two individuals were identified as students and were issued Student Code of Conduct Violations.
