In addition, the skateboard, roller skates, or in‐line skates may be temporarily confiscated for possible use in a University hearing.
Violations of this regulation by visitors may result in the person being asked to leave campus. Future violations or failure to leave the campus may result in an arrest for trespassing. The skateboard, roller skates, or in‐line skates may be seized for use as evidence in a criminal proceeding.
