    A security officer allegedly punched a male student in the face after the football game between the UA and California at Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., at 5:24 p.m. Nov. 11, reports stated.

    The student was rushing the field after UA’s 24-20 win. He said he immediately called 911 after the unprovoked guard punched him in the chin. Police noted that the man’s chin was red and swollen.

    The man was given a ticket stub with the names and numbers of two people who witnessed the man being punched.

    During the interview, another witness approached police. This witness said other members of the crowd were kicking the guard and the man who said he had been punched jumped up into the guard’s face. The guard was raising his hands to protect himself when the man was inadvertently struck. The man then started throwing punches at the guard until another security guard pulled him out of the crowd.

    The man said he was not a violent person and did not throw punches at the security officer. He told police he did not want to press charges but said he would report the incident with the security firm.

    Police warned the man that if he stormed the field again he would be arrested for criminal trespassing.

She told police she started drinking alcohol at 10 a.m. and stopped at 4 p.m. During that time she said she consumed 4 to 6 ounces of rum mixed with soda.

    The attending physician said that the woman sustained injuries to her elbow. The X-rays were not back at the time of the report.
