Student Cited Three Separate Times on State Patty’s Day

I don’t know whether to be impressed or disgusted, but this one takes some effort.

As first reported by The Daily Collegian (no link because the story ran as an offline news brief) and then called out by The School Philly, a Penn State student was cited by police three separate times for three different incidents on State Patty’s Day this year all in a matter of about five hours.

Mackenzie Woron, a 21-year-old Economics major, was cited for a noise ordinance violation at around 8:30 a.m. on February 23, for having music “audible beyond property line.” Woron was cited again at 11:30 a.m. for public drunkenness and public urination by a different officer on W. Nittany Ave. He has plead guilty to all three of these charges.

Only about two hours later, Woron was caught on a security camera “shaking feces” out of his pant leg in his apartment building’s laundry room. That charge was just filed yesterday and is awaiting a plea. Woron will also have to pay a bio-hazard cleanup fee for the excrement.

On the bright side, crime numbers were down this year from previous State Patty’s Day weekends.
