The officer tried to hold the man and then swiped his leg under Agnew and tripped him. Agnew landed on the ground and the officer hand cuffed him, reports stated.

Agnew told police he went to the Student Union to get breakfast but found all the doors locked, so he climbed up to the patio to check and see if McDonald's was open, reports stated.

The officer asked Agnew if it was unusual for him to enter restaurants in that fashion and Agnew replied, "I went up and down. Pretty stupid, huh?" reports stated.
