Weekend detention to Kellogg student Brady Busch, who was arrested Feb. 21 for pushing, grabbing, and insulting a female officer of the Evanston Police Department. Charged with battery, Busch reportedly shoved the officer, who was checking IDs, from behind so he could get past her. "Get out of the way, b-tch," he said. When arrested, the Kellogg student said, "F-ck you." Dude. You go to the Kellogg School of Management. What kind of business person do you want to be? What kind will you be? The kind that bruises the arms of police officers just so you can get into a bar? I am not impressed. Shame on you.
