KSUPD police arrest student for DUI on Marietta campus

Kennesaw State Police arrested a student for DUI on the Marietta campus on Friday, Sept. 6, shortly after 5 a.m.

KSU student Sasha McCullough was arrested Sunday morning after KSUPD found her inside a vehicle and parked in the grass between Howell Hall and the Atrium building, according to the police report. Officer Barrett Cappetto approached the stopped vehicle to find McCullough incapacitated in the driver’s seat.

“I knocked on the glass briefly until she awoke and rolled her window down to speak with me,” Cappetto said. “She rambled at first, speaking about trying to locate an Apple store and venom.”

According to the report, McCullough complied with the officer’s instructions but failed to pass a field sobriety test, stating that she had consumed two alcoholic drinks. McCullough also mentioned that she had driven from Atlanta and was on her way to Smyrna, dropping off a passenger on the way there. Cappetto reported that McCullough could not recall when or where she dropped off her passenger. He also reported that McCullough did not know where she was at the time of the arrest.

“She was unaware that she was parked in the grass, nor did she know she was on the Kennesaw State University Marietta Campus,” Cappetto said.

According to the report, Cappetto could not determine how McCullough entered the area with her vehicle, even after reviewing camera footage from the surrounding area.

KSUPD placed McCullough under arrest for Reckless Driving and DUI. McCullough consented to providing biological samples and was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital. McCullough stated that this was not her first DUI arrest, according to the report.
