University investigating concerning tweets

University investigating concerning tweets”

Oregon State University announced on Tuesday that police arrested a man for making violent threats against the university on social media.

This arrest comes almost a year after Strahan was convicted for a second-degree disorderly conduct charge that court documents say was based on the same act - or two acts connected together - as a menacing charge for "threatening to shoot and kill (a) person, or one or more other persons, located on Oregon State University property". He was booked and lodged at the Benton County Correctional Facility for disorderly conduct in the first degree.

OSU student Kammy Delp said he saw Strahan's arrest happen.

Troopers and detectives identified Strahan as the owner of the Twitter username "Hard Belly Dorm", according to the press release.

"At this time, there is no known threat to public safety", the press release stated. Further communications will be made by the university as more information becomes available.

Strahan is a former OSU student. Strahan's major was food science technology with a minor in chemistry, Clark said. He left the university as a junior in 2017, according to Steve Clark with OSU.

OSU's Department of Public Safety, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Corvallis Police Department and the Benton County Health Department helped in apprehending Strahan.

Screenshots shared by students on Facebook and Twitter showed tweets threatening a shooting on OSU's campus. Clark said they issued a social media post and updated students and faculty through email as they learned more about local law enforcement's actions.

Oregon State University tweeted this morning saying it was investigating "concerning tweets".

Oregon State Police received an anonymous tip via SafeOregon, the statewide school safety tip line. Trained staff are available 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year to review, analyze and route tips for the most appropriate follow-up and urgency.
