Drive hammered, get nailed

On July 10 at approximately 2:30 a.m., a University of Arizona Police Department officer was driving along Speedway Boulevard between Campbell Avenue and Cherry Avenue. The UAPD officer noticed a car driving in front of the officer’s vehicle at an estimated speed of 55 mph.

Once the vehicle turned on to Mountain Avenue, the officer noticed that the vehicle did not have its head lights on. The officer then pulled over the driver—a 20 year old male UA student.

The officer noticed the student had breath smelling of intoxicants, slightly slurred speech and red and watery eyes, according to the police report.

When the officer asked if the student had consumed any alcohol, the student hesitated but then admitted he had consumed two or three shots of vodka.

The officer conducted a field sobriety test and a breath test concluding that the UA student was intoxicated. He then placed the student under arrest.

It’s getting hot in here…

Two UAPD officers responded to check the welfare of a naked man spotted around the traffic roundabout near Sixth Street Garage on July 10 at approximately 5:30 a.m.

When officers arrived, they found the man sitting on a raised concrete box with his tennis shoes, shorts and shirt laying in front of him in the parking lot. The man seemed disorientated and was unable to answer any questions, according to UAPD.

The officers called Tucson Fire Department paramedics to check the man’s physical condition. The officers then found the man had two outstanding misdemeanor warrants with Tucson Police Department.

The man was able to put on his shorts and tennis shoes before being handcuffed and taken to the Pima County Jail.
