A security guard at Patten Towers told police a woman had kicked the front door, trying to get in because her friend was attempting to reach her mother, who stayed at the Towers. Security told both of the women they either needed an FOB to get in or someone had to escort them to the mother's apartment. The two of them did not like the response and the fact they were not allowed inside, so one of the women kicked the front door, and the door popped open. When police arrived, the door was back in place and no damage could be seen. Both women were outside, still trying to reach the one woman's mother. Besides a verbal dispute, no other incident occurred. Security denied to press charges as of now.
