    Police Beat

    A student suffered bruising and swelling to his face after he was hit by about three of his friends Feb. 18, reports stated.

    The student said he had gone on a trip to Nogales with about 12 friends and got into a fight with three or four men when they were dropped off at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St. He said he and a friend were “”talking trash”” during the ride, but he wouldn’t tell police any more information.

    One of his friends told police the student told one of the friends that he was a “”fag,”” and the friend replied, “”Wait until we get out of the car.””

    The two exchanged comments in their taxi for the entire ride, he said.

    He said the fight didn’t last long. He said all of the men involved were friends, but “”things got out of hand.””

    The student’s left eye was bruised and swollen shut, but he said he did not want to be seen by a doctor.

    A man was arrested for warrants from the University of Arizona Police Department and the Tucson Police Department Feb. 18, reports stated.

    A police aide saw the man “”hovering”” near the bicycle racks outside the Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd., and he thought the man was trying to steal one of the bicycles.

    When a police officer arrived the man was lying on the ground in a sleeping bag near a bicycle at the bicycle racks.

    The man said he was planning to sleep there for the night and the bicycle was his. He showed the police officer the key he had for the bicycle’s lock.

    The man had two warrants from the TPD and one criminal warrant from UAPD. He was arrested at 10:46 p.m. and booked into Pima County Jail.

    A student was cited for underage drinking at 12:01 a.m., Feb. 18, reports stated.

    A police officer saw a woman who was unsteady on her feet near a date dash drop-off stop. When the police officer went to speak to her, she walked away toward a closed business.

    She told the officer she was older than 21 and she gave the officer a Delaware identification card. The officer was unable to find any records matching the information on the ID card.

    After being questioned about the ID, the student gave police a Michigan driver’s license with a different name.

    She was cited and released for underage drinking, possession of a fake ID and giving false information to police.

    As police were arranging transportation home for her, she began vomiting and she passed out. She was transported to the University Medical Center.

    A student was cited for underage drinking, criminal damage and tampering with property at 11:50 p.m. Feb. 17, reports stated.

    The man knocked over a bench near the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd., and then ran away from a police aide toward East Fourth Street.

    He appeared to be drunk and told police he had just gotten back from a date dash and was on his way to Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall from Kappa Sigma fraternity house.

    He said he ran away from the police aide because he runs everywhere when he’s on campus and he is sometimes chased and yelled at by people.

    The police aide said he saw the man knock over a concrete bench and ashtray. Police discovered a path of broken and moved items that stretched from the northeast corner of the Administration building to the northwest corner of the Nugent building.

    The damaged and moved items included trash cans, benches, newspaper and magazine racks and tables.
