IN BRIEF SWAT detains man who barricaded self No one was injured after a 42-year-old man barricaded himself inside his home Thursday, causing the College Station SWAT team to respond. Officer Rhonda Seaton, spokeswoman for the department, said police were called at 1:07 p.m.. to the 2500 block of Dartmouth Street in reference to a man who was in crisis and possibly armed. The man threatened to harm himself, but was detained by members of the SWAT team who entered his apartment before he did so. Seaton said the man was taken to a local hospital for a mental health evaluation and other treatment. — Staff report

CLASH: Defense lists other suspects Continued from A9 of court when Greening attempted to enter audio recordings of the Bryan Police Department’s interrogation of Peck into evidence, which was again met by resistance from Parsons. After a heated debate among the attorneys and their co-counsels, Bryan decided the jury would listen to the unedited three hours of recordings accompanied by unredacted transcripts, something neither side had quite wanted. Before the day culminated with the playings of the recordings, which will be finished Friday, both attorneys were able to continue pushing their opening day arguments. Parsons relied on the fact that Peck lied to police about Perez’s whereabouts, as evidenced by the recordings, along with the tire marks found at the crime scene, as proof of guilt. Mathews had confirmed that the tracks and tires on Peck’s Ford Explorer shared a similarity on Wednesday. Greening, meanwhile, listed several people whom he said had suspicious contact with Perez around the time of her death that police had failed to interview during their investigation. Dante Thomas, the man who according to police reports sold Perez $900 worth of crack the night she was murdered, was among those listed by Greening along with the owner of the crack house where she was last seen and a woman who had attempted to cash one of Perez’s social security checks after her death. Greening also cited records of activity on Perez’s cell phone as proof that she was still alive after Peck traveled to Houston from Bryan. Parsons argued that activity wasn’t enough to determine if anyone had actually talked on the phone, to which Mathews agreed.

July ClearanCe

Continued from A9 when the university already was facing major reductions. Those concerns were somewhat alleviated after administrators explained that the reallocation pool money would come mostly from the non-academic units. “The process was followed,” said Michael Benedik, speaker of the Faculty Senate. “When it became clearer about where the money was coming from and what it was for, those concerns faded.” The money is recurring state funds so the university is expected to have it each year.
