The Delta State University Police arrested a threatening subject around 3 p.m. Wednesday close to Walter-Caylor Hall and Fifth Avenue.

Leplensco Frazier, 24, a Cleveland resident, was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace, failure to comply, public profanity and resisting arrest.

According to DSU Assistant Police Chief Benn Walker, Frazier was belligerent and threatening when he made multiple attempts to register for classes on campus Wednesday.

"The subject was arrested for his safety and the safety of our staff," said Walker. "Talking with the Cleveland Police Department, the subject has a previous record and history of mental issues."

Frazier entered campus on multiple occasions trying to enroll, but the registrar's office informed him that he didn't have the proper credentials or paperwork to become a registered student.

After the subject refused to leave the police were contacted.

"He said he was going to come back and hurt someone, and at that point we handcuffed him so he wouldn't have the opportunity to make the situation worse," said Walker.

The DSU police then transferred Frazier to the Bolivar County Regional Correctional Facility.
