A man was arrested Wednesday evening at the John C. Hitt Library after library patrons said the man was spitting in the air and pacing, according to an arrest report.
Officers from the UCF Police Department arrested Brian Wright, 31, at 6:30 p.m. after a library employee called in a complaint.
The employee, Allison Matos, said patrons at the library complained to her that a black man wearing a black shirt, jeans and a red backpack was pacing on the first floor, talking to himself, spitting in the air and taking an "aggressive stance" with people in the area, according to the report.
Officers said when they arrived and approached Wright, he told him he was not a student and that he was only there to use a computer. When asked, Wright told the officers that he had previously been issued a trespass warning for UCF. According to the report, Wright's warning was issued on Feb. 25 for sleeping in public on campus.
Wright was booked into the Orange County Jail on a charge of trespassing on a property after a warning, a misdemeanor.
Wright pleaded no contest and was sentenced to five days in the Orange County Jail, with a credit of two days served.
