2 arrested in Hamblin Hall Sunday

GPD thumbnail 1Two people, including one Knox student, were arrested in Hamblin Hall early Sunday afternoon after Campus Safety and five Galesburg police officers responded to a report of a disturbance, according to the police report.

Senior Kayla Jones was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting an officer. Jaleca Wilkins, 23, Chicago, was arrested for disorderly conduct.

Police were called to assist Campus Safety around noon Sunday, after Campus Safety responded to a call from other Hamblin residents. According to the report, arguing and shouting could be heard from outside the building.

When police arrived, both Jones and Wilkins allegedly continued yelling and ignored the officers, and neither spoke to police about the cause of the disturbance.

When Jones was asked to show her student ID, she allegedly refused and later resisted arrest.

    I am requesting that this story be removed. It is a violation of my right to privacy and is not a true account of what happened.

      What TKS is going to tell you is that what they did is “legal” and that what they got from the police report is “public record”. What needs to asked to TKS is how moral is it to exploit student’s privacy and personal matters?

      If the information here is false and harmful to your reputation, it might be grounds for defamation. I suggest you lawyer-up.

      The Illinois State Bar Association has a phone service where you can get a consultation relatively cheaply. see isba[dot]org/contact and look at the “Public” section.

      Suck it dear. Arrests are public record.

  • kentontilford

    This is not a case of defamation. The article drew from public record and made sure to qualify all statements regarding the events with “allegedly”. Also, every local newspaper I’ve ever seen reports on local crime; it’s an entrenched cultural norm. Keep up the solid reporting, TKS.
