Police Beat: October 18


A UA student was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center on Oct. 11 at approximately 12:44 a.m. for extreme intoxication.

A resident assistant first contacted the University of Arizona Police Department for medical assistance after learning of the student’s condition at a residence hall.

UAPD officers and Tucson Fire Department personnel arrived but University of Arizona Emergency Medical Services was already evaluating the student.

The student was laying on the floor of her room with a trash can over her head.

The student told medical personnel she had drank too much alcohol and just wanted to go to bed.

Her friend told officials they had been with her that night and that she had drank at an off-campus fraternity house.

TFD personnel assessed the student’s condition and decided to take her to UAMC for extreme intoxication.

The student was not arrested, but was issued a referral to the Dean of Students Office.

Breath of fresh air

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia on Sunday at 10:30 p.m.

Two UAPD officers responded to a call regarding the smell of marijuana coming from a room in a residence hall.

The resident assistant told officers he smelled marijuana coming from one of the rooms, followed by the sound of an aerosol can being sprayed and the scent of air freshener.

Officers knocked on the door and informed the student that they were there due to a report of marijuana. They then asked the student if there was marijuana in the room.

The student retrieved an iPad box from his closet. In the box was a small bag of marijuana, several empty bags, a metal grinder, a glass pipe, a lighter and a homemade filter.

The student told them he had attended a party at an apartment complex, and had received the marijuana there. The student said he didn’t know who gave him the drugs or who owned the apartment he’d been in.

The student then admitted to having smoked marijuana in his room about an hour before officers arrived. When asked if his roommate was also in possession of drugs, the student responded he didn’t think so.

The student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. He was also issued a warning against drug use on campus.
