A Washington State University student was arrested Saturday afternoon for allegedly issuing threats which led to the evacuation of the student recreation center.
The WSU Police Department reports the incident began around noon when Dmitry Dementyve walked into the SRC. Witnesses told officers he was acting odd and playing loud music on his phone when he told some students that 'we are all going to die today and that WSU is going to die today.'
Dementyve then allegedly went to the basketball courts and starting tossing items around when SRC staff called 911 and evacuated the building. Dementyve then ran out of the building and was arrested by WSU police after a short foot pursuit. Dementyve was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and will likely to undergo a mental evaluation. The SRC is back open.
