The incident occurred when a female residential assistant responded to Patel’s screaming and found him in a distressed state. Patel suddenly attacked her, but she managed to fight him off until the police arrived and apprehended him.

Patel admitted to consuming THC-laced gummy bears prior to the incident and claimed that he felt like he was in a dream while attempting to engage with the assistant. Indiana University has banned Patel from returning to the dorm and the entire Bloomington campus.
