    Police Beat: April 20

    Squatter spotting

    Two female UA students were charged with minor in possession on April 15.

    Around midnight, a UAPD officer was patrolling First Street and Vine Avenue when he saw two women who appeared intoxicated.

    One woman, clutching a cement pillar, seemed to be vomiting or urinating. After approaching the students, he found that she had squatted to urinate.

    The woman said that she had only two beers at a house off-campus while the other student said that she drank “”jungle juice.””

    Both students exhibited symptoms of intoxication and submitted to portable Breathalyzer tests.

    The results showed that both women had alcohol in their system so they were arrested for minor in possession.

    They were cited, released on scene and taken home by a taxicab.

    Sparky tags Arizona Stadium

    Arizona State fans attempted to rebrand Arizona Stadium on April 16.

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer on patrol spotted graffiti underneath the east side of the stadium at 5 p.m.

    “”SPARKY”” was spray-painted, about three feet in height, in black paint on a column under the stadium.

    A victim’s rights form was sent to the UA.

    Drunk and deceitful

    On April 15 a UAPD officer, patrolling Euclid Avenue, noticed two women in a parking lot north of the Aggie House.

    One of the women was squatting next to a brick pillar and appeared to be urinating.

    As the officer approached her and shined his vehicle’s spotlight on the woman, she immediately stood up and fixed her clothing.

    When the officer asked for her identification, she gave her name and said that she didn’t have a license.

    She also said she didn’t have an address because her parents had moved from California to Phoenix.

    A records check on the name and information given to the officer showed no result.

    The woman then admitted that she had given false information. When she told the officer her real information, the results indicated that she was underage.

    The officer then arrested her for minor in possession, criminal littering and false reporting.

    She was cited and released on scene.
