An ASU student is recovering after he fell two stories from a residence hall in an attempt escape from a student pretending to be a police officer, authorities said.

Department of Public Safety officials at Arizona State University said the student and two others were smoking marijuana at 11:07 p.m. Sept. 24 inside a dorm room at Sonora Hall. A resident of the room knocked hard on the bedroom door saying he was the police, authorities said.

One of the students tried to escape through the window, but fell two stories to a covered entryway, struck that portion of the roof and continued to fall to the ground, authorities said.

ASU DPS said they believe the student went through the window intentionally to get away and did not slip.
