3 ULM students arrested

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) – University police arrested three students for terrorizing. The incident happened a little after 2:30 Tuesday morning.

This is Nikki Miller's first year at ULM. She is glad to see the three 19 year old's Michael Andrade, Jerrick Avary Jones and Elijah Walker arrested for their behavior. A police report states the three men were driving around campus and told at least two potential victims they were going to quote, "Get them, get them now."

"I don't think it's funny at all. Like that's not something you joke about," said Nikki Miller.

All of the students we spoke with agree. Even if the men were just joking and trying to scare people it's out of line.

"Well it's not really something to joke about because things like that actually happen," said Katie Calhaun.

"That is really childish because you have to think about things and it could become a serious matter and you have to think about the consequences of once you do something," said Jordan Hollins.

According to the report Jones told ULM police he was driving the mustang and Walker and Andrade were passengers. The two alleged victims who say they were yelled at also felt chased because the mustang with the three men inside kept returning. Now safety is on Nikki Miller's mind.

"It just makes me a little nervous. Whenever I have to stay late, doing my homework and stuff," said Miller.

But other students feel safe.

"This is my second year here at ULM and I feel that the campus is totally safe because you see the police every ten seconds," said Jordan Hollins.

"I've always felt safe here. The police know what they are doing. there are always little buttons around the campus, if you see something go wrong, and they just know what to do," said Calhaun.

We reached out to ULM. In a short written statement school officials say they are determining the punishment for the three students arrested.
