Police Beat: April 15

UFO commander

Two sightings of suspicious women were reported on the fourth floor of the Modern Languages building on April 4 and April 8.

Two University of Arizona Police Department officers spoke with one woman who had reported seeing the suspicious person. The woman said the suspicious woman was “speaking jibberish about different things,” on April 4.

She reported that the woman was taking business cards and program pamphlets and made an appointment with an adviser for April 7, though she did not show up for it.

On April 8, a suspicious woman spoke with a professor. The professor described the woman as “troubled.” The woman had said she was a reincarnated Christ and that her life was in danger due to government snipers waiting for her in the trees. The woman also stated that she commands a UFO army and that she has the right to destroy all life.

The officers were unable to confirm if the two women sighted were the same person, but the woman who reported the suspicious woman on April 4 said that the two women sounded very similar.

Share the road

A man reported being brushed by a vehicle while riding his bike on Campbell Avenue on April 8.

The man told a UAPD officer that he had been riding in the bike lane on Campbell Avenue when he noticed several trucks backed up waiting to turn right. The man swerved into the middle lane of traffic to get around the trucks, at which point a man in a truck brushed the man on the bike with his vehicle.

The man told the officer that a verbal altercation then took place. The man in the truck said, “Get out of the road, jerk.” The man on the bike replied, “You can’t do that.”

The man on the bike said he was not injured, his bike was not damaged and the vehicle did not knock him off of his bike. He said he wanted the driver cited.

The officer then spoke with the man in the vehicle, who said that the man on the bike had swerved out of the bike lane into his lane of traffic, causing him to brake. He said the biker continued to ride in the middle lane before swerving back into the bike lane.

They then stopped at a traffic light, at which point the driver said the biker called him a “motherfucker” and said that he had pulled into the bike lane. The driver told the biker, “You pulled into traffic and did not indicate you were coming into traffic.” The driver denied hitting the bike rider.

No further action was taken.
