Editor-in-chief resigns Monday

The Dakota Student editor-in-chief, Carrie Sandstrom, resigned Monday after being arrested on suspicion of obstructing a police officer, refusing to halt for police and underage drinking, according to a police affidavit.

Sandstrom said she and a friend were walking home on campus when officers stopped them for appearing visibly intoxicated.

“I apologize profusely for the damage caused by my actions, and hope that if anything I can serve as a cautionary tale,” Sandstrom said in an email announcing her resignation to staff of The Dakota Student. “I leave the publication knowing it is in good hands and with eager hearts.”
