No doubt caught up in the uncontrollable excitement that was the Midnight Madness pep rally Saturday night at Georgetown, a freshman student reached into a U.S. Park Police officer's purse and took her service weapon.
Like any responsible youth with a firearm, he then retired to a restroom where he used the gun to damage a toilet, the Hoya reported.
Authorities held the attendees in McDonough Gymnasium for several minutes after the conclusion of Midnight Madness -- at about 11 p.m. -- while they investigated what had occurred. The annual event marks the start of official practices for the basketball team.
The damage to the toilet was estimated at $250. Should you want to see to what extent a gunshot can damage a toilet, there are pictures of the damaged stall available here.
