The editor of UND’s Dakota Student newspaper resigned abruptly after her arrest early Saturday on a misdemeanor charge of hindering police.

Sandstrom, 19, was booked in the Grand Forks County jail on Saturday after campus police arrested her on suspicion of obstructing a police officer, refusing to halt for police and being a minor consuming alcohol.

Carrie Sandstrom told the Herald that she and a friend were walking on campus at the time.

Sandstrom made a $2,000 cash or surety bond and was released later Saturday.

According to the UND police report:

Sandstrom appeared intoxicated and under 21 and refused to cooperate with officers questioning her, when stopped as she was walking with a friend in the 2900 block of University Avenue on campus about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.

Sandstrom yelled at the police officers she was “just on her way home,” and “she was fine,” but Sandstrom refused to give her name or age and swore at police.
