I just met you, and this is crazy. But love me maybe?

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to a call from a fraternity house on April 23, about an intoxicated man who refused to leave the house steps.

The man had tried to follow three women into the fraternity house, but was stopped.

He claimed that one of the women was his girlfriend, but the three women said they didn’t know the man and that he had been following them for a few minutes. A fraternity member asked the man to leave, but he refused.

The man had red, glassy eyes and smelled of intoxicants. He said he was only trying to follow his girlfriend into the house. The man said his identification was at his apartment and identified himself verbally, but UAPD could not find a record matching his name. When the officers told him this, he then spelled out another name and gave his birth date. Officers found no record of that name either. Eventually, the man gave his real name.

He was placed under arrest for minor in possession in the body and false reporting to law enforcement and taken to Pima County Jail.

I’ll just lay here, thanks

At 1:20 am on March 30, University of Arizona Police Department officers noticed two people, one was laying in the center of the road by Pima Residence Hall.

The officers were told the person on the ground, a female UA student, was intoxicated and had made her way to the ground without hitting her head. The female student was not responding to questions, but was breathing and had her eyes open.

Her friend helped the officers walk her off the road because she could not walk straight.

UA Emergency Medical Services and the Tucson Fire Department then arrived to check on the female student.

The female student’s friend had been trying to get her to eat to sober up, but she had just laid on the ground.

The female student was medically released, and her friend allowed her to stay in her room for the remainder of the night.

On the walk to their residence hall, the female student acted belligerent. After the officers left the hall, the friend asked that the female student not remain in her room with her because she was creating a disturbance.

When police went to look for her, they could not find her. Later, officers went to the Sol apartment complex and, after speaking with security there, found that the female student had returned home safely.

The student was issued a UA Student Diversion for underage drinking.
