Party near campus ends with assault, citations

At least one SMU student was involved in an altercation early Thursday morning on SMU Boulevard that ended with an officer assault and six citations for minors in possession of alcohol.

“This case is under investigation by the Dallas Police Department. SMU will pursue its own investigation to determine if any violations of the SMU Student Code of Conduct, which applies to student behavior both on and off the campus, have occurred. Such violations could result in academic sanctions imposed by the University,” Executive Director of News and Media Relations Kent Best told The Daily Campus.

The Dallas Morning News reported that Larry Darnell Moore, 21, was charged with assault on a public servant after he punched an officer responding to a 12:30 a.m. call at an apartment complex in the 5600 block of SMU Boulevard.
All the minors that received citations were taken home by the police and SMU police were notified of the incident. It is unknown whether all six were SMU students.
