Police in Arizona are looking for a man to question after several students reported that they were served spiked drinks at a JROTC ball.
According to a Flagstaff Police Facebook post, the man was spotted on surveillance cameras lurking around a Double Tree Inn on Saturday while the Coconino High School JROTC was holding a ball.
The man was acting “suspiciously,” according to police, and was seen walking around “checking conference room doors” and “going up and down in the elevator near the lobby.”

A chaperone confronted the man, who identified himself as “Sgt. Major Travis Palmer,” before saying he needed to take a phone call and leave the premises.
Six female students and one male student became ill and began vomiting while experiencing nausea and dizziness about 20 to 30 minutes after he left. This incident led to the assumption the teenagers were served spiked drinks.
The Facebook post said the students “thought their drinks had been spiked.”
The Flagstaff Police Department released a photo of the man wearing a hat, a dark-colored jacket, and a mustache.
According to police, the man is in his 40s or 50s, stands about 6 feet tall, and has a large build.
He was wearing two backpacks and a black jacket with a large red stripe. The investigation as to the identity of the culprit is still on-going. Schools must be more vigilant and have any suspicious activities reported immediately to the authorities.
