“I’m fine!”

A UA student was lying in a bathroom with abdominal pain at Cochise Residence Hall on March 7 at 7:15 p.m.

University Emergency Medical Services arrived on the scene, where a woman was lying on the floor wearing a bikini top and a pair of swim shorts. According to a University of Arizona Police Department officer, she appeared to be in pain and was speaking incoherently. She also began crying once the Tucson Fire Department arrived. As she was being evaluated, her suitemate and resident assistant helped to confirm her identity.

Everyone helped the woman back to her room as she swayed and stumbled. She stopped on the stairway outside her room and yelled, “I’m fine!” While she continued to walk, her mood changed to cooperative and polite. The student made it to her room and her suitemate agreed to stay with her for the rest of the night.

The officer made contact with the woman, and he could see her eyes were red and watery, and she had a strong smell of intoxicants coming from her breath. She said she drank some alcohol off campus near 435 E. Adams St.

Later on, the officer drove to the address provided by the student and saw a small group of women also wearing bikini tops and swim shorts entering and exiting the yard of a residence. He could hear yelling and loud talking as though a social event was occurring.

A UA student diversion form was completed for the sick woman and forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.

How many bottles of beer on the wall?

A UAPD officer saw two male UA students walking southbound on Park Avenue trying to hide a Keystone Light box they were carrying on March 7 at 2:15 p.m.

The officer was on a break when he saw the two men set the box on the east side of a short brick wall to his left and sat on the wall facing east. They both looked over at the patrol car and after about three minutes, the officer moved closer to the men. The men walked over to a concrete table under a 7-Eleven canopy about 6 feet away from the brick wall.

A 30-pack of Keystone Light was seen on the wall as the officer walked toward the men. He pointed at the beer and told them he saw them placing it on the wall and walk away from it. One student said he wasn’t sure if it was legal to carry the beer in public. The men identified themselves to be 18 and 19 years of age. 

One man said he bought the beer using a fake license. He was cited and released for minor in possession of alcohol, misrepresentation of age to purchase and possession of a fictitious out-of-state license. The other student was cited and released for minor in possession of alcohol.
