SUPPRESS YOUR “INNER SPIDERMAN”: 11:52 a.m., Weatherford Hall, Oregon State University campus. A 22-year-old OSU student scaled the exterior of Weatherford Hall and entered a fourth-floor window, but OSP troopers informed him that by “channeling his inner Spiderman,” he could face a charge of disorderly conduct. Troopers learned that the student is an avid rock climber and thought that climbing the building would provide a unique challenge despite the Velcro cast he had on his right wrist. When questioned about entering someone else’s residence hall room, he indicated that the occupants had consented by cheering him on and telling him to climb inside. He was given a warning.
