Two IDs

A UA student was cited for underage drinking in Coronado Residence Hall on Feb. 7 at 1:07 a.m.

A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a call reporting an intoxicated man trying to gain access to rooms in Coronado. The student was standing at the front desk, and the officers saw that he had red, watery eyes.

The student was looking for his ID but could not find it. The resident assistant handed the student’s wallet to the officer, who found two IDs inside — one from New York and one from California.

The ID from New York was a fake and the one from California was the student’s actual ID. When asked, the student said that he had paid $150 for the fake ID but did not say where he purchased it.

The student also said he had been drinking at an off campus house party.

The student was then cited by the officer.

One way to get a ride home

A UA student was diverted for underage drinking on Feb. 7 at 2:41 a.m.

A UAPD officer was driving down Sixth Street, approaching Park Avenue, when he noticed a woman standing in the street leaning against a construction fence. The officer stopped and turned on his rear lights to alert her that he was approaching.

As the officer approached the woman, he saw her step away from the fence and almost stumble into the construction area. The officer noticed her swaying and a strong smell of alcohol.

The woman identified herself and said she was a student. When asked if she had been drinking, she told the officer no. When asked a second time, she admitted to drinking a “small” amount of vodka
at an on campus party.

The woman consented to a breath test and the officer confirmed that she had alcohol in her system.

After the officer verified that she did not have any weapons, he drove her to her home.

The student was then diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

Hall call

A UA student was taken to the University Arizona Medical Center and cited for underage drinking Saturday.

At 3:01 a.m. a UAPD officer responded to a call from Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall about an extremely intoxicated man. Upon arrival the officer found the student was sitting on his floor, with watery, glassy eyes and wet pants.

When asked if he had consumed too much alcohol the student replied that he had. The resident assistant said he had called for a medical evaluation after finding the student stumbling in the hallway.

The student was transported to UAMC and cited for minor in bodily possession of alcohol later that day.
