    Police Beat: Aug. 27

    One shot, two shots, three shots, floor

    A UA student was transferred from her residence, Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., to St. Mary’s Hospital due to extreme intoxication on Tuesday. 

    At 12:30 a.m., a Coronado resident assistant called the University of Arizona Police Department and reported a female resident who was “”very drunk.”” When police arrived, the RA said the woman was on the floor in the bathroom. The resident had “”vomited and defecated on herself”” while in the bathroom. Among the many odors in the restroom, was the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage the woman had consumed. 

    The officers asked the woman if she had been drinking. Though her speech was thick and slurred, she responded that she had consumed “”three shots.”” 

    Tucson Fire Department arrived on the scene, checked her vitals and requested that she be transported to the hospital. The student was referred to the Dean of Students Office and charged for minor in possession. 

    Mysterious borken window

    A UAPD officer responded to a residence, 800 E. University Blvd., about a suspicious broken window on Tuesday.

    The officer saw that a pane of glass from the window, facing Euclid Avenue on the west side of the room, had been broken out with an unknown object at an unknown time. Shards of glass were on the window sill and there did not appear to be anything broken or stolen from inside the room.

    A UA Facilities Management employee was sent to fix the window. There are no suspects or witnesses.

    Tuesday night: MIP and UMC

    A UA student was transported from the second floor of Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, 610 N. Highland Ave., to the University Medical Center for extreme intoxication. 

    At approximately 10 p.m., the officer responded to Graham-Greenlee where an RA had reported a female resident who had locked herself in a restroom stall. The RA said the woman was extremely intoxicated and vomiting into a plastic bag. The officer entered the restroom to contact the woman, asking her several questions and receiving incoherent answers. After she answered with thick, slurred speech and detecting a strong odor of alcohol on her breath, the officer proceeded to call the TFD where they then transported the woman to UMC. She was referred to the Dean of Students Office. 

    Two blasted students, one bust

    The UAPD responded to Second and Warren Streets in response to suspicious activity at approximately 12:15 a.m. on Tuesday.

    Officers approched a woman with a strong odor of alcohol on her breath. The woman, with blood-shot eyes and slurred speech, had to use the wall to help her stand. She was cited for minor in possession. The woman was released to her boyfriend’s residence because she stated that she did not know her local Tucson address.

    Meanwhile, the officer also made contact with a man who had blood-shot, watery eyes. The man admitted to drinking “”alcoholic beverages”” and also admitted he was arrested for an MIP at the age of 16. The man was cited and released. The man is a member of a fraternity on campus so a message was left for Greek Life; however they did not answer.
