October 4, 1:24 a.m.--Police responded to a telephone call that several Cambridge teenagers were fighting with Harvard students behind Grays Hall. Arriving at Grays, officers were told by a resident that the teenagers had been fighting among themselves, and had thrown a stick against a window. The teenagers were taken into protective custody by the Cambridge Police.

October 5, 2:32 p.m.--Officers observed Darrell Wallace of Dorchester asking passersby for money near Massachusetts Hall. Wallace was dressed in a priest's collar and said he was collecting for the Church of Christ in Odessa, Calif. An identification check revealed he was actually an out-patient at Boston State Hospital, and officers issued him a trespassing warning.

October 6, 1:25 a.m.--An officer noticed two men near the delivery drive of Lamont Library transacting what he thought was a drug sale. When he approached them, William D. Kirchner fled and the officer chased him on foot through the Yard, catching him on Holyoke St. When the officer grabbed the 20-year-old Arlington, Mass, resident, Kirchner allegedly punched him in the eye. In the struggle, a small plastic bag dropped from Kirchner's pocket that was identified as a narcotic. He was subsequently arrested for disorderly behavior, assault and battery on a police officer and possession of a narcotic.
