Just be blunt about it

A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to Arizona Sonora Hall in reference to a student claiming his roommate was smoking marijuana on Sept. 7. 

When the UAPD officer arrived at the door, there was no odor of marijuana coming from inside the room. The officer asked the roommate if he had any marijuana in his room to which he nodded his head up and down. 

The officer asked the roommate to retrieve it, and the UA student got a blue Maxwell House coffee can with a hidden compartment at the bottom and pulled out a plastic baggie containing what the officer recognized as marijuana. 

The officer read Miranda Rights to the student, who then provided a large pill bottle with a small amount of marijuana with three flavored cigar wrappers that he stated were used to roll “blunts,” according to police. 

The student was diverted for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. There were a total of 17 grams of marijuana in the baggie and one gram in the pill bottle. 

Vomiting the Fifth

UAPD responded to a call from Coronado Residence Hall of a report of an intoxicated female at approximately 1:20 a.m on Sept. 7.

Tucson Fire Department and University Emergency Medical Services were on the scene rendering aid to the student who was sitting in a chair in her room vomiting into a trash can. The Residence Assistant, who lives in the room next door to the girl, said the student’s roommate knocked on his door requesting help. 

The vomiting student answered questions from TFD saying she had only drank alcohol. She was medically cleared by TFD and released to the care of her roommate. 

The officer spoke with the student as she was still leaning over a trash can. Her eyes were red and watery, and the officer could smell the odor of intoxicants emitting from her breath and vomit. Her speech was slurred and she spoke slowly. 

The officer advised the student of her Miranda Rights, at which she nodded, and asked if she would answer questions. The student shook her head, indicating no. 

The student was diverted to the Dean of Students for a minor in possession of spirituous liquor in body.
