Police Beat: October 6

I want to hold your hand

Two women were seen assisting a third woman across the intersection at Sixth Street and Campbell Avenue. After crossing, both attempted to keep the third from falling into the roadway, and one flagged down a University of Arizona Police Department officer.

The intoxicated woman fell onto the officer, who asked her to sit on the curb. The woman fell onto the curb next to the traffic pole and told the officer she was of legal drinking age.

When the officer asked her for her birthday, she said it was Oct. 26, 1995. When paramedics arrived, she attempted to hold hands with them while they medically evaluated her.

Once is enough

  A UAPD police officer was dispatched to the Pueblo de la Cienaga Residence Hall to respond to a medical assistance call for extreme intoxication.

The officer made contact with a male student who was sitting in the shower and asked if he had any alcohol.

The male responded, “I have had enough,” and when asked what enough was, he replied, “Just one shot.”

After being transported to the University of Arizona Medical Center, the officer spoke to his roommate, who stated he thought the student had about 10 to 15 shots of vodka. Due to the male student being a minor at 17 years of age, his mother was contacted and put in contact with the UAMC staff.

19 going on 60

A UAPD police officer, while on Residence Life patrol, noticed two men at a dumpster taking beer bottles out of a box and placing them into a backpack.

The officer asked one student for identification, and he handed him an Oregon driver’s license. The student had no record in Oregon, and the license number belonged to a 60-year-old man.

The officer asked the student for his real identification, and he provided the officer with a California driver’s license with the same name but a date of birth that made him out to be 19 years old.

A 12-pack of Negra Modelo was taken from the student and disposed of. He said he purchased the alcohol from the Metro Wildcat, though the clerk had no record of selling the alcohol to him in his alcohol sales identification log. The officer walked to U of A Liquors, and discovered that the clerk had sold the student the beer. The clerk verified the license and thought it was legitimate.

The officer advised him that the driver’s license was fictitious and he would be getting contacted by the Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control.
