    A man was arrested for driving with a suspended driver’s license Nov. 10 at 10:52 p.m.

    A police officer pulled over the man because he appeared to be in a speed contest with another vehicle while traveling north on North Euclid Avenue and past East Helen Street. The man was traveling an estimated 50 mph in a 35-mph zone.

    When the officer asked the man for his driver’s license, the man said, “”I don’t have one,”” according to reports.

    When asked why he was racing with another vehicle, the man said, “”I was just going home and driving 50. The speed limit is 45 here.””

    The officer then told the man the speed limit is 35 mph.

    The man replied, “”Oh, I guess I didn’t know that,”” according to reports.

    A records check stated that the man’s driver’s license was suspended.

    The man was arrested and walked back to his residence. His vehicle was impounded.

    A Tucson Police Department officer was dispatched to Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., in reference to an extremely intoxicated underage man.

    The man was described as conscious and vomiting, but not very alert.

    The officer approached the man, who gave the officer his personal information. The man was unable to answer any other questions and Tucson Fire Department arrived on the scene at 12:29 a.m. to treat the man.

    A friend of the man told police they were at a party north of campus and she had seen him later that evening sitting on the curb, appearing intoxicated. The woman drove the man to Arizona-Sonora and hoped to walk him to his room at Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St.

    Once they arrived at Arizona-Sonora, the man sat on the curb and began to vomit continuously and the woman was unable to get the man to walk any farther. The residence hall staff and several students arrived shortly after to provide the man assistance, and the staff called police.

    The man was transported to University Medical Center by ambulance following TPD’s recommendation that he be treated for extreme intoxication.

    The man was cited at UMC at 3:47 a.m. for being an underage person with spirituous liquor in the body and was released at the scene.

    A copy of the report was forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.
