  4. Medical attention to any person, including yourself, was required as a result of the alcohol- or drug-related behavior.
  5. You operated a motor vehicle while intoxicated or under the influence of a drug.
  6. The student exhibited reckless disregard for personal safety and/or the safety of others while intoxicated or under the influence of a drug.
  7. Evidence indicates that your alcohol- or drug-related behavior interfered with your or another person’s academic process.
