    Police Beat: March 26

    Alcohol abuse

    Two UA students were cited and released for minor in possession after police received a report about a bleeding man yelling through a window at Coconino Residence Hall at 2:10 a.m. on March 21.

    University of Arizona Police Department officers were dispatched to the dorm, where a man was yelling, “Someone is going to die.”

    The man was described as a thin, white man with blond hair, wearing a white shirt. When police spoke to him, the student was “very upset,” due to a small laceration above his left eye.

    The man, who showed signs of intoxication, said a door that was opening struck him, causing him to bleed.

    UAPD officers then spoke with the reporting party, a woman who said she accidentally hit the man with the door. Due to the man’s intoxication, he believed it was done on purpose, she added.

    Before the police officers arrived, the man yelled, “I will fuck you up, I will mess you up,” according to the woman.

    The man and the woman both agreed to breath tests. The test revealed the man and woman had alcohol in their bodies.

    “But I’m 21, bro,” the student told the officer, before showing him a fake California driver’s license. The card, which had a photo of the student, who’s from Oregon, had a false birthday on it, police noted.

    The two students were then cited for minor in possession — liquor in body, while the man was also cited for possession of a false license, before both being released.

    Nose knows

    A marijuana odor coming from a third-floor room in the Posada San Pedro Residence Hall resulted in a referral to the Dean of Students Office for a code of conduct violation issued to a student at 12:10 a.m. on March 21.

    UAPD officers met with a resident assistant who escorted officers to the hallway where the smell was coming from. Police then knocked on the door, and a student granted officers permission to enter.

    Upon walking inside the room, officers noted a smell of marijuana, but as their conversation with the student continued, the odor became “less and less strong,” according to the report.

    The student told police he had smoked outside of the dorm with a group of friends, but that the substance was not present in the room. Police then searched his room but did not find any marijuana. However, they found two packs of rolling papers and a lighter, which were seized and submitted for evidence.
