    A UA professor was sent suspicious e-mails Jan. 31, reports stated.

    The professor was sent two e-mails that contained hateful speech.

    One of the e-mails stated, “”Hey idiot, why don’t you shut up? White people are not crybabies like you. I bet you push your leftist bs (sic) to the students.””

    The professor said the e-mails may have been sent in response to a lecture he gave to a class.

    The police told the professor that the Security Incident Response Team at the CCIT could not trace who the e-mails were from because of the unknown number of IP addresses the e-mail had passed through.

    The police also told the professor the e-mails would not be considered as hate crimes or threats because no threats were made in the emails.

    A man was arrested for criminal trespassing Feb. 8.

    The man was seen walking from the Student Union

    The student later sat up and said he was okay. His eyes were red and watery and his speech was slurred. Police smelled a strong odor of alcohol on his breath.

    The student asked police if he could have a ride home.

    Police searched the student and found a fake driver’s license.

    Police asked the student if the license had worked at bars.

    A student was ejected from McKale Center after police found a fake identification card in his wallet Jan. 27, reports stated.

    The students, who were members of Delta Gamma sorority, admitted to using keys to scratch the black Jetta of another female, who was a former member of the sorority.

    The two students, who were both crying and smelled of alcohol, said they were upset with the other female because she had won the social chair position of their sorority and they had lost.

    After she won social chair, the female moved out of the sorority house because her status as a UA student was unclear.

    One of the females who scratched the car said she was under 21 and knew she shouldn’t be drinking.

    The student was given a minor in possession.
