    A UA student’s skateboard was impounded at 4:37 p.m. Sept. 9 after police stopped him for “”hot-dogging”” on campus, reports stated.

    Two community service officers stopped the man near the Meinel Optical Sciences building, 1630 E. University Blvd., after they saw him performing tricks.

    The officers asked the man several times to sit down so they could explain why they stopped him. After they explained the situation to the man, he stood up and told the officers, “”I don’t have time for this. I have a date.””

    The student started to leave on his skateboard but was stopped by two police bicycle units who were responding to the call.

    The student had a prior warning for hot-dogging on the UA campus.

    A car worth an estimated $10,000 was stolen from the Alpha Phi sorority house, 1339 E. First St., sometime between 5 p.m. Sept. 8 and 2 p.m. Sept. 9, reports stated.

    There was no broken glass around the area where the car had been parked and no other signs of forced entry.

    The driver of the vehicle said there was not an extra set of keys that someone had access to, and she did not lend the car to anyone.

    The car had an estimated $900 worth of possessions inside, including school books, an iPod and a 1-foot subwoofer and amplifier.

    A student found a threatening letter under his door in the Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., Sept. 8, reports stated.

    The student said another man had brought out a vaporizer from his bag that morning in his dorm room. The student said, “”Woah, we don’t do that here,”” and the man put it back in his backpack.

    Later that day, the man returned and started banging on the door and demanded that he be given the vaporizer back. The student said the man had left with the item and allowed the man to search his room.

    The man left, seemingly satisfied that the student did not have the vaporizer.

    A few hours after the second encounter, the student returned to his room to find a handwritten note slid under his door.

    The note read, “”I know U have my Vap. Be careful or return it.””

    The student told the police he felt threatened but did not want to press charges.

    Three students were diverted to the Dean of Students Office for underage drinking at 11:27 p.m. Sept. 9, reports stated.

    Police stopped after seeing two men in an argument being restrained by other men. When police approached the scene, everyone except one of the men and his girlfriend ran into the Delta Chi fraternity house, 1701 E. First St.

    Police placed the man in handcuffs and asked for an ID.

    The male student told police his ID was in his front-left pocket, where they found a New York driver’s license.

    As they called in the name to be checked, the student admitted that the New York ID was not his. He said the fake ID was a gift from a friend, and he had not used it.

    Police detected alcohol on the breath of both underaged students.

    The woman was crying when the police came on the scene. She said the only reason she had been drinking that night was because she was scared about the shooting that occurred on campus earlier that day.

    The man told the police that he was in an argument with his best friend because he had disrespected his girlfriend. After he was asked several times, the man identified his friend and all three were cited for minor in possession.

    A car was criminally damaged in the parking lot of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority house sometime between 2 a.m. Sept. 9 and 2 p.m. Sept. 10, reports stated.

    The roof of the vehicle was smashed in, and at some points the dents were 1 foot deep.

    Several muddy footprints were left all over the hood and trunk of the car from where people had climbed on top of the vehicle. At least two different types of shoes were identified.

    One fingerprint was recovered from the hood of the car and placed into evidence for processing.

    There were no suspects or witnesses at the time of the report.
