A student, later diagnosed with mental health problems, was talking to himself and started shouting in the Bookstore. He was asked to leave by security. The same student was also standing by the checkout counter at the library for about 15 minutes, talking to himself. Security contacted the Santa Barbara Police Department who took him to Cottage Hospital. The student was dropped from his classes because of his inability to function in a learning environment.

A woman saw a man sitting by a computer in the Cafeteria, looking at pictures of children wearing swimsuits and underwear on different websites. The woman approached the man and told him that what he was looking at was inappropriate.

The man took all of his belongings and left. When Security checked the history of the computer to try and identify the suspect, they found that it was logged onto a female student’s computer and was most likely left logged in when the man approached the computer to use it.
