Three men were arrested early Saturday on the (SHU) campus; one for trespassing, the other two for interfering, police said.

According to the report, Benjamin Proulx, 20, of New Hampshire trespassed on the campus after being warned not to return. Proulx, a former SHU student, allegedly harassed the residence hall director who reported his trespass. He was told not to return by the hall director and then returned again a short while later, prompting police intervention, department spokesperson Sgt. Sue Lussier said.

Two other men -- current SHU students -- began to interfere with police and the hall director when Proulx was arrested, Lussier said. It was not clear whether Jake Everett, 19, of New Jersey and John Riley, 20, of Vernon, Conn. were intervening on Proulx behalf or “just to interfere,” Lussier said.

Both students allegedly followed the hall director back to his office, yelling profanities and banging on his door, police said. The hall director reported fearing for his safety at this point, according to the report.

Proulx was charged with first-degree criminal trespass; Riley and Everett were both charged with breach of peace, Lussier said. All three were released on $1,000 bonds and are due in court on March 28.
