    Police Beat: Jan. 25

    Sick to her stomach

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer was patrolling campus on Monday at 1:40 a.m. when he noticed two female students behind Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall. He approached the women when he realized that one of them was vomiting. He asked both of them for their driver’s licenses and if they had been drinking. They said yes but that they did not know where. He asked the women where they were headed, and they said they were residents of Arizona-Sonora. The woman who was vomiting decided not to answer any questions — the officer believed that she was not coherent enough.

    Both students had a smell of alcohol on their breath and red eyes. The student who wasn’t throwing up was able to go home by herself, but the student throwing up could not. The student and the officer helped the sick student to her room. The other woman told the police officer that she would stay the night with the sick student, and would call 911 if she became sick again. The vomiting student was cited for minor in possession of alcohol in body.

    Too drunk to know what’s up

    A UA student was hospitalized for heavy intoxication on Monday at 2:21 a.m. A UAPD officer found four men at Manzanita-Mohave Residence Hall supporting one of their friends. The man could not walk, talk, open his eyes for longer than five seconds or perform any sobriety tests. The UAPD officer called for medical services to further assist the student to the University of Arizona Medical Center. One of the student’s friends rode with him to the hospital.

    The friend said they went to a party at the NorthPointe Student Apartments and rode home in a taxi. The friend said they noticed the student was drinking a lot of beer, but did not pay attention to how much. The officer tried to speak to the student after he was released from the hospital. The officer spoke to the student and asked him what he remembered, and the student replied, “I don’t remember anything, the last thing I remember is going to NorthPointe and drinking beer.”

    The officer cited him for minor in possession of alcohol in body, then gave him a ride back to his dorm.

    Arizona Stadium break-in gone wrong

    A UAPD officer was driving down Highland Avenue on Sunday at 3:15 p.m. when he saw three male students carrying a fire extinguisher, two construction hats and a reflective vest. The officer immediately stopped and approached students. When they saw the officer, they dropped everything and ran away.

    The officer caught up to the student carrying the fire extinguisher and immediately arrested him. The officer called for backup while he continued to search for the other students. The officer went to the cuffed student’s room, where his roommate gave the officer the names of the two other students and what room they were in. The officer then went to the room and the two students answered the door, both in boxers. Both had the smell of alcohol on their breath. The officer also smelled marijuana in the air.

    The officer asked to step in and saw a bong on the students’ table. The officer asked if the two students had marijuana located in the room and if they had anything to drink. They replied, “We do not have weed in the room but we have the bong there, and yes, we have had some to drink.” The students were arrested and taken back to the original site where the officer had cuffed the third student. The students said they drank, then got bored and decided to walk around. They then noticed a construction site next to Arizona Stadium and decided to break in. They said they took a fire extinguisher and two construction hats, but no one admitted to taking the vests. The students were taken to Pima County Jail, where they were cited for third-degree burglary and possession of drug paraphernalia. All three students were required to meet with the Dean of Students Office.
