Confusing “infamous” with “famous” in Ann Arbor

See this essay in today’s Ann Arbor News,“Student’s belongings hurled from 12-story window.” To quote from the article:

A University of Michigan student who told police he wanted to be famous broke out his bedroom window Monday morning in a high-rise apartment building and began hurling his belongings 12 stories to the street, Ann Arbor Police said.

As Officer Craig Devoogd approached the intersection of South University and South Forest avenues around 9:50 a.m., a large wooden dresser came crashing into the street, police said. A 5-foot-tall fan followed, both smashing into pieces.

Devoogd blocked the street as more belongings rained onto it and the sidewalk, Lt. Michael Logghe said. A desk, books, compact discs, pillows, computer equipment and personal items such as photographs and a genetics exam littered the street and sidewalk.

Not surprisingly, the young person was admitted to the University of Michigan Hospital for “observation.”

Yeah, finals are a stressful time, eh?
