On Wednesday, April 1, 2009, at 1247 hrs., the Fox dispatcher received a telephone call from the Sutton Place security desk. Information received was that a parent of a MICA student was at Sutton Place looking for her daughter who was involved in a vehicle accident. Campus Safety responded to Sutton Place and met with the mother of a MICA student. She said that at about 1000 hrs., she received a telephone call from her daughter's boyfriend stating that the daughter had been involved in a vehicle accident and was at Maryland General Hospital. The mother stated she called Maryland General, but no patient was registered under her daughter's name. The mother, Sutton security and Campus Safety responded to the student's room to conduct a room check. The apartment was not occupied. As they were waiting for the elevator, the student arrived to her apartment. The student notified the officer that the telephone calls were an April fool joke on her mother. The officer explained the seriousness of the matter and advised the student that Student Affairs would be notified. Mr. Mike Patterson (Dean) was made aware.
