    Ames Police Investigating Man's 3-Story Fall

    WHO TV - Des Moines: Ames Police Investigating Man's 3-Story Fall

    September 7, 2008--Ames police are investigating how a man fell out of a three-story window in the middle of the night. Police were called to 311 Ash Avenue just after 4:00, Sunday morning.
    Police identified the man as 18-year-old Kaleb Stebens. He was air lifted to Mercy Medical center, but there is no word on his condition or why he fell.


    I believe this is Farmhouse Fraternity... Anyone know/hear anything?

    This kid has had a tough couple years.

    Victim of hit-and-run graduating high school / QCTimes.com

    Graduation and the new face are important, his mother says, “but he was really on Cloud 9 Friday because he got his acceptance letter from Iowa State University.
    I wish him the best.

    "Tough"? I may be jumping to conclusions, but I have a strange feeling that 4:00am on a Sunday was avoidable...

    I am not 100% sure it is the same kid but with the age and spelling of the name I would be surprised if it isn't the same kid.

    Re: Ames Police Investigating Man's 3-Story Fall

    No word on why he fell??? Let me take a stab in the dark at this. Drugs/Alcohol, one or the other or possibly both. Investigation closed.

    Last year I lived just down the street from farmhouse as well. That is some crazy stuff.

    Re: Ames Police Investigating Man's 3-Story Fall

    Sounds like possibly alcohol had a factor: Ames police: Alcohol may be a factor in fall | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    I'll refrain from giving my opinions about if he was drunk when he fell out because I don't want to start another frat vs non-frat war...

    Not at all. Farmhouse is apparently a dry house so assuming he was drinking somewhere else and came back drunk? Even then I'm surprised that someone wasn't keeping an eye on him if he was bad enough shape to fall out of a window. Back in my college days if your roommate or neighbor came back in really bad shape you kept an eye on them, even made them crash on your couch or something just so they didn't wind up outside and pass out there or hurt themselves stumbling around or even suffer alcohol poisioning.

    I was being sarcastic, of course alcohol was involved. Farmhouse is a dry house but my house was too a year ago. He easily could have gone out drinking somewhere else and came back drunk. I know that I have. But like you said I don't want to get into another frat vs. non frat argument.

    Drinking in college is exclusive to the greek system. No one off campus or in the dorms would ever take a drink.
