From the Technician:
According to Alex Stewart, a freshman in sports management, the nekked man ran into the women's restroom on the ninth floor when police arrived. Barnwell said the suspect was not aggressive toward Campus Police.
“I was passing the bookshelves and I heard all this noise. I turned and I see this white dude, butt-nekked, he's just tearing up bookshelves,” Stewart said. “It was crazy. I thought ‘Wow, is this guy crazy? Is he on drugs?'”
Stewart said a crowd of about 15 people stood by and watched the incident.
“He started coming up to us threatening to fight us,” Stewart said. “He asked [students] if they wanted to die, and then he continued wrecking bookshelves.”
Cameron Winter, a senior in English and a library employee, said while he didn't see the incident, he couldn't miss the aftermath.
“It was about 1,400 [books] just from estimates,” Winter said. “He wasn't doing it half-assed. It was all or nothing for this guy.”
N.B., How happy is the Duke Administration that this one happened down the road in Raleigh and not in Durham?
