    Police Beat: Sept. 1

    Some jokes are hardly cute

    A woman was spotted sleeping on an electric box on Thursday. When University of Arizona Police Department officers arrived the woman was showing signs of intoxication.

    At approximately 4:25 a.m. the woman was swaying in every direction, her eyes were bloodshot and the officer could detect a strong odor of alcohol on the woman.

    Upon being asked where she lived, the woman told the officer La Paz Residence Hall. Later, however, she went back on that statement and said that she lived at one of the sorority houses on campus. The woman was cited for minor in possession of alcohol.

    The officer then transported the woman to her home. Once they arrived at the sorority house, the officer explained the citation to her. The woman said she understood and signed it in front of the officer.

    After signing the citation, the woman said she “”had wished [the officer] had sexually assaulted”” her. The officer had a supervisor from UAPD come in to the sorority house prior to providing a copy of the citation. The woman stated she was joking about wanting the officer to sexually assault her in front of the UAPD supervisor. She said he had not done anything like that. The woman was provided a copy of the citation and released without further incident.


    Hold on to your CatCards, people

    A student reported that he was pick-pocketed at the Student Union Memorial Center while waiting in line at IQ Fresh on Aug. 25, at approximately 2 p.m.

    A UAPD officer responded to the case and approached the scene of the theft. When the officer contacted the student, he said his CatCard was in a pocket on the back of his backpack. There are no suspects or witnesses. The student has put a hold on his CatCard and was given a victim’s rights form.


    Putting a stop to the pool hop

    A man and woman were arrested by UAPD on charges of trespassing at the pool at Hillenbrand Aquatic Center on Thursday. When the officers arrived at the scene, they noticed two people swimming in the pool and began walking towards them.

    The man and woman quickly got out of the pool. The officers spoke to them through a fence, and the man and woman were identified as UA students. Both of them stated that this was the first time they had ever trespassed at the pool, and that they had climbed over the fence in order to get in. The UAPD officers arrested them on charges of 2nd degree criminal trespassing.


    Speeding + expired license = bad idea

    A dark-colored BMW was seen making an improper right turn into the second lane of a street near UA campus. A UAPD officer noticed this and followed the car as it began to go faster.

    The police officer paced the vehicle at 50 miles per hour, and pulled the driver over.

    Once he approached the car and made contact with the driver, the officer learned that the driver had a suspended license that had expired in June.

    He cited the driver on charges of driving with a suspended license and speeding. The driver was released and the vehicle was towed.
