The University of Kentucky – Lexington (UKL) Police Department says it is reviewing the conduct of two of its officers after they appeared in a viral YouTube video threatening a student with expulsion while forcing their way into his dorm room on Saturday.
The officers, who alleged alcohol had been dumped from the dorm room’s window, demanded to search the premises for more alcohol but did not appear to possess a warrant.
Instead, one officer invoked “administrative rights” to enter the room and threatened the student with expulsion for declining to permit entry.
“Listen man, do you want to be kicked out of this university?” he asked. “I can pave that road.”
“We’re going to get you kicked out,” he added.
