Public Intoxication - While investigating, a UT police officer observed a UT student, who was under the age of 21, fall to the ground near the officer's feet as the student entered the dormitory. When asked for identification, the student produced a ticket stub. The student stated he was drunk but could still do calculus. The officer asked the student what 1 divided by "X" as "X" approaches infinity equaled and the student correctly answered "0," making his former calculus teachers very proud. Apparently, the student was too intoxicated to handle lesser math as he originally stated he had consumed a shot and two drinks of "mystery punch" but then counted the drink tally as five shots and four drinks of the punch. The student tried to bargain with the officer and offered a home-cooked meal for his release. When the officers declined, the student demanded more calculus problems before expelling some of the alcohol from his system on a table. The obviously tired student laid his head down in the splash zone before an ambulance arrived to transport him to a local hospital for alcohol poisoning. Occurred at 2:39 pm, on Feb. 22.
