‘Suck my dick’

A UA student was cited for minor in possession of alcohol at about midnight on Oct. 13.

An officer from the University of Arizona Police Department was walking past Coronado Residence Hall when he noticed a UA student yelling and swaying as he walked down the street.

At one point the student yelled, “Suck my dick.” The officer then approached the student to conduct a welfare check, catching up with him in front of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall.

The officer noticed the smell of alcohol on the student’s breath, as well as his bloodshot, watery eyes and slurred speech, and asked the student to provide identification.

The student initially replied, “I don’t think I need to do that,” but when the officer asked a second time, the student provided his identification.

The officer conducted a sobriety test and found the student to be intoxicated.

He admitted to having four beers while at an off-campus party, but would not say who provided the alcohol.

The student was cited and released and a code of conduct referral was forwarded to the Dean of Students Office.

Smoked out

Two UA students were issued code of conduct referrals for marijuana use and one of them was cited and released for possession of drug paraphernalia at 10:55 a.m. on Wednesday.

A UAPD officer responded to a report of the smell of marijuana coming from a room in Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. The resident assistant on duty took the officer to the room in question.
A student answered the door and told the officer he didn’t live in the building, but was just visiting a friend. Another student then came to the door and said he was the resident.

The officer asked the two students to step out of the room. Both had watery, glassy red eyes. The officer told the students that the room smelled like marijuana.

The resident told the officer he had a vaporizer, but had smoked all of his marijuana. He said he had bought the marijuana somewhere off-campus for $10, but could not recall where. The UAPD officer reentered the room with the student, confiscated the vaporizer and cited the student for possession of drug paraphernalia.

The visiting student admitted to smoking marijuana, but said the drugs and vaporizer didn’t belong to him.

The officer completed and forwarded code of conduct referrals for both students to the Dean of Students Office.

Scream and shout

A UA student was taken to the University of Arizona Medical Center Tuesday at 1:02 a.m., after his roommate reported him behaving strangely.

UAPD officers received a request from the Tucson Police Department to meet at the Kappa Alpha fraternity house.

A UA student had called TPD and reported that his roommate was severely agitated and screaming in their apartment. The roommate then ran out of the apartment and into the street, still yelling.

When TPD officers arrived on the scene, the student ran into the Kappa Alpha house. Officers knocked on the door and said they were there for a welfare check on the screaming student. The students who answered the door told the officers they would bring him out.

Officers continued to knock on the door for 20 minutes. Eventually, the president of the fraternity answered the door, and brought the student to the officers.

The student was alternating between being agitated and withdrawn, and UAPD officers suspected that he might have taken some sort of illegal drug.

The Tucson Fire Department was called, and emergency personnel assessed the student and sent him to UAMC for evaluation.

The Dean of Students Office was notified of the situation.
