Wet and wild

University of Arizona Police Department officers referred a UA student to the Dean of Students Office for diversion for minor in possession of alcohol in a UA parking lot on campus at 1:45 a.m. on Sunday.

UAPD officers were outside of a residence hall when they saw a student exit a cab and stumble backwards for about 15 feet until he fell into a large puddle of water.

Officers went to check if the student was injured and saw that he was extremely drunk. He had red, bloodshot eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol. He couldn’t stand up straight and swayed back and forth.

The student said he had been at an off-campus house party and had “drank hard.”

University of Arizona Medical Services and the Tucson Fire Department arrived to see if the student was OK.

After an evaluation, they released the student to his friend to be cared for. The student was walked to his dorm room by his friend.

That’s what friends are for

A UA student was arrested for minor in bodily possession of alcohol by UAPD officers on Sept. 29 at 2:45 a.m.

A UAPD officer saw a man sitting on a bench and throwing up. When the officer checked on him, it became obvious that he was drunk.

The student said that he was underage and had been drinking a lot of beer that night. He also said that he was only throwing up “just a little bit,” but would not say where he had been drinking.

TFD was called to evaluate the condition of the student, who had bloodshot, watery eyes and smelled strongly of vomit and alcohol.

Shortly before TFD arrived, the student’s friends came to pick him up. They said they were sober and came there to help their friend.

TFD released the student and allowed the student’s friends to take him home.

The UA student was cited and released. He was also referred to the Dean of Students Office for a code of conduct violation.
