(CBS)From CBS News' Ryan Corsaro:
(ATHENS, OHIO) - Remember when Joe Biden was arrested? We didn’t, but he told the story as he warmed up to a crowd in Ohio today.
“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. 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 said winkingly to laughs from the crowd.
“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 to young, 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. But that’s what I most remember about Athens. So folks look, it’s good to be back here.”
