Video Emerges of Biden Admitting He Was Arrested for ‘Following’ Female College Students

Newly unearthed CNN video shows Biden admitting he was arrested for following female college students in Ohio

In yet another blow to Joe Biden’s scandal-ridden presidential campaign, a video has emerged from 2008 that shows Biden admitting he was arrested in Ohio after being caught following young female college students to an all-female dorm.

The newly resurfaced clip shows CNN reporting that Biden told a crowd in Ohio that he was “arrested” for following the group of young women to their dorms.

After lightheartedly telling the crowd he was caught “by a cop who arrested me,” he admits such behavior was not allowed “back in those days.”

The clip and the incident occurred on October 15, 2008, when Biden was Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama’s running mate.

“On our ‘Political Ticker,’ Barack Obama’s running mate playfully admitted he was arrested more than 40 years ago,” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer said in the video.

“Biden joked about it in Ohio,” Blitzer continues.

“He said he was attending a football game between his university and Ohio University, and he mistakenly followed what he called – and I’m quoting now – ‘a lovely group of women’ into an all-female dormitory.”

“Biden says an officer quickly stopped him, noting that men were not allowed inside,” Blitzer added.

“Biden joked it was only a temporary detention.”

Dailywire.com reports: On that same day, CBS News published an article on the alleged remarks that Biden made while speaking to supporters near Ohio University’s campus.

“It’s good to be back in Athens. Now you say ‘Back in Athens, Biden, when were you here?’ Well I went to the University of Delaware and we came out here to play Ohio University,” Biden said, according to CBS News. “Now that was 228 years ago and we did just fine, but the thing I loved about the university was that it was such a beautiful town and we all hung around out afterwards.”

“Now I made a little mistake here that day, I made a little mistake. I wandered in, I met this lovely group of Ohio University…students,” Biden continued. “And uh, without knowing it, I shouldn’t admit this on national television because it’ll reveal that I’m over 60, but I thought that we were gonna go get something to eat. What’s that street you have down there, all you guys? See, I…and so I just said … two young women I had met, said well why don’t you…we’ll be right back, I said well I’ll come with you, and they said okay, and I walked into their dormitory and was immediately accosted by a cop who arrested me because back in those days men were not allowed in women’s dormitories.”

“But I promise you I never breached the first floor and it was only a temporary detention,” Biden continued. “But that’s what I most remember about Athens. So folks look, it’s good to be back here.”

An article on a CNN Political Ticker blog documented Biden’s alleged remarks as being nearly identical to the remarks from the CBS News report.

Here’s how CNN described Biden’s remarks:

Speaking to supporters near Ohio University’s campus, Joe Biden said it was good to be back in Athens after visiting for a football game over 40 years ago. This time, however, chances are he’ll leave without getting arrested.

“I went to the University of Delaware and we came out here to play Ohio University,” said Biden. “The thing I loved about the university was that it was such a beautiful town and we all hung around out afterwards.”

“Now I made a little mistake here that day, I made a little mistake. I wandered in, I met this lovely group of Ohio University students,” he said to cheers from the crowd. “I thought that we were gonna go get something to eat.”

Biden recalled the two “young women I had met” told him they’d be right back. “I said well I’ll come with you, and they said okay, and I walked into their dormitory and was immediately accosted by a cop who arrested me because back in those days men were not allowed in women’s dormitories.”

“But I promise you I never breached the first floor and it was only a temporary detention. But that’s what I most remember about Athens. So folks look, it’s good to be back here.”
