Police Beat: April 15

Everybody’s doing it

A UA student was booked into Pima County Jail on charges related to domestic violence after a dispute with her ex-boyfriend outside of Coronado Residence Hall early on the morning of April 5.

A man flagged down police outside of Coronado at 1:15 a.m. because a woman was yelling and cursing at another man. The woman was pulling on the man’s arm so he couldn’t walk away.

When the woman saw the police officers, she released the man’s arm and he walked toward a cab. The woman followed him but wouldn’t allow him to close the door of the vehicle.

Officers then asked to speak with the couple.

The woman, who showed signs of intoxication, said they had been dating for two and a half years, but that the man was trying to break up with her. The two had been at an off-campus party before they returned to campus in a taxi together.

She was then cited for a minor in possession, escorted to her dorm by police and told not to return to Coronado.

Police then received a call from the man’s resident assistant at 3 a.m., because the woman was in his room and was refusing to leave. She had followed someone else into the building, then caused enough noise to wake up the man’s hallmates, the RA said. The RA spoke with the woman for about 20 minutes, but she refused to leave.

When police officers arrived, they recognized the couple and arrested the woman.

Later, while being processed, four and a half Adderall pills were found in the woman’s purse. The woman then became upset with police over the questions about the drugs, which she said were prescribed for her sister.

“It’s just freaking Adderall, everyone freaking takes it,” she said. The woman also kept repeating, “This is bullshit. My boyfriend’s got drug charges and I’m the one at jail.”

Stealing double

Two laptops were reported stolen from rooms in Coronado Residence Hall at 2:45 p.m. on April 8.

UAPD officers spoke with a UA student who said he attended class earlier. When he returned, the door to his room, which he said was always closed, was open.

The suitemate of the student then reported his laptop missing as well.

Police officers then spoke with the suitemate’s roommate who said he had been in class too, but nothing appeared to be missing or out of order.

There are currently no suspects or witnesses, and the two students both said they plan to pursue criminal charges.
