    Police stopped a GMC Sonoma on East Broadway Boulevard and North Cherry Avenue on Aug. 10 because it had a cracked windshield.

    The driver told the officer that he had never owned a driver’s license, which the Motor Vehicle Department confirmed. The driver was issued a civil citation, and the vehicle was impounded for a mandatory 30 days.

    The driver was ticketed for not having a driver’s license and proof of insurance, and for having a cracked windshield.

    A man called the University of Arizona Police Department after he noticed an open driver-side door with a broken lock on his white Chevrolet 12PU on Aug. 9 at 1521 E. Drachman St.

    The man inspected the vehicle, but nothing was missing or left behind by the vandal. The lock of the door appeared to be forcefully punched out with a tool that left small pry marks on the door handle.

    When UAPD arrived, the car was contaminated with other fingerprints, and no other prints were taken. Police have no suspects or witnesses.

    A woman walked into the UAPD office to report that while jogging southbound on North Mountain Avenue, a man jumped out from behind a cactus and began masturbating while aiming his penis in her direction.

    UAPD turned the case over to TPD. The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 25 years old, 230 pounds and bald with minimal hair growth. No suspect has been found.

    A man was arrested for criminal trespassing and possession of drug paraphernalia at the UA Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd., on Aug. 8.

    Police responded to a report that the man was sleeping on the roof of the Old Chemistry building, 1306 E. University Blvd. When police arrived, the man was gone but he had left all of his personal possessions on the roof – including a backpack, sleeping bag, hat and stuffed rottweiler.

    The officer knew who the man was based on these possessions, and he fit the description of the man on the roof. Police were contacted again later that night about a man on the roof of the Old Chemistry building who was seen walking toward Bear Down Gym, 1428. E. University Blvd.

    Police confronted the man in front of the library and informed him that he was under arrest.

    “”I wasn’t sleeping on the roof,”” the man said, according to reports. “”I was only napping.””

    The man was booked into Pima County Jail.

    Police were dispatched to Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., to restore peace Aug. 8.

    An officer met with a man outside the dorm, at a job site. The man told the officer that a temporary employee got in his face after being told that he was not needed anymore and could leave. The employee said, “”I’ll kick your ass, you owe me money,”” according to reports.

    The man told the employee to leave again or he would call the police. The employee left on foot once he saw the man calling UAPD.
