A white Yale graduate student reported one of her black classmates to campus police for napping in a dorm common room — and the student was interrogated for 15 minutes because her name was misspelled in the school database.
Yale grad student Lolade Siyonbola was studying for finals in her dorm’s common room when she fell asleep, and this white woman called the cops.
The videos show Siyonbola telling police the woman who called them suffered from mental illness and had called police several months ago on a friend who had gotten lost in a stairwell of the building.
Siyonbola, who showed police she had a key to her room and later provided them with her ID, accused the officers of harassing her.
