    An underage student was cited and released for possession of alcohol in Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., at 1:07 a.m. Nov. 19, reports stated.

    An officer responded to a call that there may have been underage students with alcohol in one of the rooms in the residence hall.

    While the officer talked with that room’s residents, resident assistants stopped a student in the hallway who was carrying a 30-pack of Coors Light beer.

    The student showed the officer his driver’s license, which confirmed he was underage, and he told police that he had already drank three of the beers.

    The student said that a friend had purchased the beer for him, but the student would not reveal his friend’s identity.

    The students with whom the officer had originally been talking denied drinking, and the officer could not see any evidence of illegal substances in their room through their doorway.

    An unknown person assaulted a student outside Yavapai Residence Hall, 1222 E. South Campus Drive, at 3 a.m. Nov. 19, reports stated.

    The student said that after he exited his friend’s car in front of the residence hall, he was struck from behind.

    He did not see his attacker, and because he was intoxicated at the time, the student did not realize he needed medical attention.

    He went to his room and slept until 2 p.m.

    When he woke up, he felt he needed medical help and went to the University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

    The student told police he thought that the attack might have been a retaliation after his friend cut off a vehicle at an intersection.

    The student suffered cuts on his face and body.

    Due to the time that had elapsed since the assault, the UMC staff could not easily treat the student’s cuts.
