Rocky roads

University of Arizona Police Department officers referred two UA students to the Dean of Students Office for minors with spirituous liquor in the body in the parking lot of Coronado Residence Hall on Friday at 1:36 a.m.

Two officers were leaving the Coronado lobby when a student approached the officers and told them about his friend who had fallen outside and cut her face.

The officers immediately went to aid the woman, but found an ambulance from the Tucson Fire Department already taking care of her. She had an abrasion to the right side of her head near her temple and had thrown up in the parking lot after hitting her head.

The student told officers that the woman had been at a Delta Chi party with him and had been drinking wine. They were walking home after the party when she tripped and hit her head. After she stood up, she began to throw up.

As the student spoke to the officers, they noted that he had red, watery eyes, slurred his speech and smelled strongly of alcohol. TFD told the officers the woman would be released because her abrasion was minor and she was able to speak.

The officers got the ID of the student and had to ask for the woman’s identification three times because she kept misspelling her name.

The officers determined the students were both underage and the students received a minor in possession and were deferred to the Dean of Students Office.

Urination without hesitation

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for urinating in public on Friday at 11:46 p.m.

As a UAPD officer was patrolling a Greek Life Date Dash by the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, he saw a student leave the house and hide behind bushes against the south side of the University Information Technology Services building.

When the officer went up to the student, he found the student facing the building, peeing.
The officer made his presence known and after the student zipped up his pants, he spoke to the officer. The student said he could not use the bathroom inside because he was kicked out of the sorority.

The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office.
