    Sleepy sleepwalker saunters into strange situation

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to Maricopa Residence Hall, an all-female dorm, at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday in reference to a suspicious man in the common sleeping area. A resident told the officer she had woke up that morning and found a man sleeping next to her in her bed, with his head at her feet. The woman said she had no idea who the man was or how he ended up in her bed. She said he did not touch her during the night and she was not worried. The man had also peed in the corner of the room. The officer woke up the man, who said his ex-girlfriend had let him into the building the night before. He was very confused about what happened and didn’t realize he had slept in the wrong bed until the officer told him. The man said he drank an unknown amount of beer before and after he went to work the day before. The man’s ex-girlfriend, a resident of Maricopa, said he had fallen asleep with her in her bed initially. She said he must have gotten up in the middle of the night and moved to another bed. The man was cited on charges of minor in possession of alcohol and released to his parents, who took him home from the dorm. The resident who found the man in her bed assured the officer she hadn’t been affected by the situation, she only thought it was very strange.

    Not a Keystone guy

    A UAPD officer was on patrol near Cherry Avenue and Speedway Boulevard around 7 a.m. on Sunday when he observed a white Chevy pickup truck fail to yield to a pedestrian in the crosswalk. The officer made a traffic stop and spoke to the driver, who said he had left his driver’s license in his dorm room when a friend asked him to drive him home. He also did not have a current insurance card. When the driver got out of the car, the officer noticed a Mason jar in the storage compartment of the driver’s side door. He asked the man if there were any other violations he should be aware of and the driver told him he didn’t have mud flaps. The officer asked the man about the jar and the man said it was for marijuana and gave it to the officer. He said he had last smoked a few days ago. Upon searching the truck, the officer found two unopened 12-ounce cans of Keystone Light beer on the passenger’s side. The man said they were not his because he drinks Coors and they probably belonged to the friend he had driven home earlier. The man was arrested on charges of minor in possession of alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia, no proof of insurance and failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.

    Captured CatCard

    A woman reported to UAPD that her CatCard had been stolen. The woman said she had left her card at a table in the food court area of the Student Union Memorial Center around 5 p.m. on Sunday. When she returned two to three minutes later, her card was gone. It had been attached to a black lanyard that had yellow and white triangle designs and a mini flashlight. A victim’s rights form was mailed to the student. There is no further information.
