An Elmhurst University student is facing felony charges, accused of causing an hours-long campus lockdown and police search. Police say last month, 25-year-old Darnel Baalbaki called in a false report of a man with a gun on campus. He now admits he had met earlier with a man that day to get meth, but he never actually saw anybody with a gun. He is charged with felony disorderly conduct.
