    A male student was found unconscious at Yavapai Residence Hall, 1222 E. South Campus Drive, at 1:02 a.m. Sunday, reports stated.

    While making security rounds, a resident assistant found the student lying on the floor, and he could not wake the student.

    A police officer arrived on the scene to find the student unconscious with a strong odor of intoxication emanating from his breath.

    The officer found an Arizona identification card sticking out of the male’s back pants pocket.

    The picture on the card was similar to the male’s appearance, but it did not match exactly. The officer asked residents if the student was the person on the card, and they told him his name was different from the one on the card.

    Tucson Fire Department paramedics arrived on the scene and contacted an ambulance to transport the student to University Medical Center.

    The student was admitted to UMC with a blood alcohol content of .330.

    Later, the officer spoke with the student who told him the identification card the officer found belonged to a friend of his who no longer needed it.

    He said that he had used the card to buy alcohol.

    He told the officer that he purchased gin and rum from an Albertsons and drank it on campus with some friends.

    The student was cited and released for underage drinking.


    An unknown person stole a laptop from Room 445 in the Education building, 1630 E. Second St., sometime between 4:30 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. Monday, reports stated.

    A man left his Sony laptop on the desk at the front of the room on Friday, but when he returned after the weekend, the computer was gone.

    The man said that the room was locked all weekend, and that only janitors had access to the room during that time span.

    He provided police with the computer’s serial number and contacted the Center for Computing and Information Technology to find if it could be located with wireless triangulation.

    Police have no suspects and no witnesses.


    An unknown person knocked over a scooter parked at Alpha Chi Omega sorority house, 1775 E. First St., sometime between 10:10 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. Tuesday, reports stated.

    A police officer spotted a scooter lying on its right side in a parallel parking spot south of the sorority house.

    The scooter’s front right lamp was broken, and two cups of gasoline had spilled onto the road. The officer saw no evidence that another vehicle had hit the scooter.

    A records check revealed that the scooter had been uninsured as of May 2006.

    The officer was able to contact the scooter’s owner, a member of Alpha Chi Omega, who said she recently returned from studying abroad.

    The student told police her mother reinstated the scooter’s insurance when she returned from overseas.

    However, the student did not have a motorcycle endorsement, which is required by law in order to drive scooters.

    She said she recently found out that she needed one to drive the vehicle.

    Police advised her not to drive the scooter until she acquires the endorsement, and there are no suspects or witness in connection to the damage caused to the scooter.
