Emory Police Department (EPD) officers arrested “Coco Dorella,” whose legal name is William Frazier, on Sept. 18 at the Dobbs University Center (DUC) for carrying a loaded weapon onto school property.
Frazier was reported by an Emory staff member, who said that a black male wearing a multicolored mini skirt and a wig had entered the women’s restroom, said Lt. Cheryl Elliott of EPD, adding that the DUC staff had asked him on many occasions not to use the restroom.
EPD officers arrived at the DUC and approached Frazier, a 24-year-old visitor to the University.
EPD officers initially charged Frazier with creating hazardous or offensive conditions, which is a violation of DeKalb County ordinance.
“It was much more of trying to identify what reason he had to be on campus that led us to [the arrest],” Elliott said. “If he had had business on campus or he had not had all the other incidents, we would have just talked to him, asked if he needed to use a unisex bathroom.”
Upon issuing Frazier the citation, officers discovered a Taurus 22-caliber weapon in his purse, along with other various personal items.
