In some disturbing news out of west Hartford, it has been reported that a 19 year old college student has been charged for smearing bodily fluids over her roommate’s belongings in what police are calling, a bias crime.

18 year old Brianna Brochu is in a world of trouble and faces misdemeanor criminal mischief and breach of peace charges and could also be facing a felony bigotry charge as well.

According to reports, Brochu was not happy with how her roommate, was behaving, which is why she did what she did.

Taking to Instagram, Brochu wrote: “Finally did it yo girl got rid of her roommate!! After 1½ month of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions… putting her toothbrush places where the sun doesn’t shine, and so much more I can finally say goodbye Jamaican Barbie.”

Brochu has left the university, and in a statement, president Greg Woodward made it clear that her behavior in no way reflects the values of the institution.

“The accused student’s behavior was reprehensible and does not reflect the values of our institution,” Woodward said in a statement to the campus community Tuesday. “The incident has brought about accusations of racism, and I want you to know that I hear and share your anger and frustration. Acts of racism, bias, bullying, or other abusive behaviors will not be tolerated on this campus.”

Chennel posted a video on Facebook, in which she stated that her relationship with her roommate had always been tense.

“I moved out because I felt like I was unwanted in my own room,” she said in the video.

She also stated that she is very frustrated at how long it took school officials to act on her behalf, and states that even when they became aware of the situation, they told her to be quiet about it or she would be asked to leave.

“The university strictly and swiftly followed all procedural and legal processes related to this alleged event; claims to the contrary are based on misinformation,” Woodward addedd
