Nathaniel Harger, Ohio State University Student Allegedly Vandalizes School Museum

Never drink and then go to a geology museum. A lesson for the ages.

A student at Ohio State University broke into the school's Orton Geological Museum on early on Sunday morning and caused some major damage.

According to Fox Toledo, "Reproductions of fossil skulls were vandalized, clear plastic exhibit covers were broken and a claw was removed from the actual skeleton of a giant ground sloth."

Nathaniel Harger allegedly told officers he had about 10 mixed drinks in one hour before he found himself in the Geology museum.

Harger is charged with several felonies and caused $5,000 worth of damage.

I got a call from OSU police, saying, 'You better come down here,' and came down and almost cried," Collections Curator Dale Gnidovec told NBC4i.com.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Hager was apprehended in the museum holding several artifacts. At first, he complied with the officer's request to get down on the ground, but soon re-negged and started running away.
