Things Your Most Likely To Be Arrested For In College

Throughout your student life, you're bound to get into a certain amount of trouble and cause a bit of mischief. The important thing is to know where to draw the line. Of course, when you're fueled on alcohol (which we students frequently are) the line between legal and illegal, funny and idiotic, becomes dangerously blurred. Here are the things you are most likely to be arrested for in college.

7. Public Indecency.

I've been known to lose my pants ever now and again when I'm a couple of whiskeys deep, and my peers don't make a big deal about it. Streaking is the next step forward and that's where things get sticky. Streaking in public gives you an odd sense of freedom and a temporary adrenaline rush, but that quickly vanishes when you're rubgy tackled to the ground by a couple of police officers. And finally, sex in public. Okay, it's something we've all taken a whack at, whether you had nowhere else to go, your house is fully booked or you simply couldn't contain yourself any linger. Sometimes we let our sex drive seize control of us and end up getting down and dirty (literally) in a park or a pile of bushes. Oh well. As long as we learn from our mistakes, right?

6. Drunk and Disorderly.

Probably the most common felony that college students are likely to be arrested for. Students, on average, drink a lot more than other sectors of society, but boy do we do it well. Drinking games, binge drinking and rollover sessions (none of which promotes) are common events in college life and it often leads to some very unfortunate incidents after a few too many.


5. Piracy.

We've all seen them piracy videos, and I'm pretty sure none us have taken heed. They're ridiculously blown out of proportion and over the top, but everyone knows that one guy with a library full of downloaded songs, films and tv shows!

4. Stealing A Big Mac At McDonald's.

Technically speaking, this could fall under the category of "drunk and disorderly", but this is an even that occurs so often that I think it deserves its own bracket. Stroll into a McDonald's at any point during the night of a Friday or Saturday and you will see mayhem, lawlessness, and histrionics at its highest. Between people sneaking behind the counter, barging in and out of the queue and screaming in near-drunken insanity, most fast food spots are breeding grounds for this type of crazy activity. I do not envy the employees who get stuck working the night shift!


3. Possession With Intent To Sell.

With desperation, a student will do almost anything to pay for their rent, food and rising student fees. Now, we're not talking about selling highball drugs here, but the occasional 25 or 50 euro worth of dingy weed to your friends. Or maybe you're just smoking that bud for yourself. You're bound to get caught or pulled over with those red eyes and melted brain sooner or later, so just hope that the policeman in question, isn't having a bay day.

2. Perjury.

What is it about guys that we won't snitch on somebody, even if they've done something horribly wrong and are even pinning it on you? It's such a dirty word - rat, snitch or the less mature, tattle-tale. If you've shared a beer with a guy, you're unofficially locked into an unspoken bond. If your best friend asks you to lie to his girlfriend about where he was last night, you'd instantly cover for him and wouldn't have any qualms about lying for his benefit. What if that made you an accessory to his crime? Yikes!

1. Murder.

Whether you consider yourself a lover and not a fighter, it doesn't really matter. There are a lot of idiots, weirdos and lunatics out there, and you're bound to bump into your fair share of them. I don't think you can rule out that you might murder one of these dummies somewhere down the road, when something in your brains snaps and you can't take it anymore! And let's face it, you're probably totally equipped for this type of scenario from all the Criminal Minds, True Detective and Lie To Me episodes that you've watched over the years!
