    She’s got a little in her

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer went to Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday in response to a report of an intoxicated woman. When the officer arrived, Tucson Fire Department medics were on scene treating a woman for a swelling cut above her left eye. The woman was crying and kept repeating, “I don’t want a minor, I don’t want my dad to find out.” The woman said she had an unknown number of mixed drinks and thought some of them contained Captain Morgan rum and vodka. She would not say where she was or who provided the alcohol. Friends of hers had helped her back to her dorm, but she got the cut when she tripped on the stairs and fell face-first, she said. The woman argued with the medics because she did not want to go to the hospital. The officer cited her for minor in possession and she was referred to the Dean of Students office. TFD medics transported the woman to University Medical Center-University Campus.

    Breakin’ doorknobs

    A UAPD officer went to Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity in response to an attempted burglary at 9 a.m. on Wednesday. The officer met with the house manager who said it appeared that someone had tried to break into the house through the double doors on the south side of the property sometime overnight. The door handle had been ripped off of the door. The manager found the handle outside and brought it into the house. He said he had not heard anything suspicious through the night, but had not spoken to any of the house members before contacting police. The manager said he did not yet know if anything was stolen or missing from the house. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

    I shot you down … with music

    A Parking and Transportation Services employee notified UAPD after he discovered a broken window on a truck in the Park Avenue Parking Garage on Wednesday. The officer spoke to the employee, who said he noticed the window while doing routine checks in the garage. PTS dispatch called the owner of the truck and left a message. There was a black plastic case on the railing of the bed of the truck with the latches open, but the case closed. It appeared to be a gun case. The officers photographed the damage to the truck. A few minutes later, the owner of the truck arrived. The man said he last saw his truck around noon on Sept. 26. He informed police that the black case contained a clarinet, which was still inside it. The owner filled out victim’s rights forms. There is no further information.
