My girl, homie

University of Arizona Police Department officers were dispatched to a reported assault at 601 N. Highland Ave. on June 29 at 4:45 p.m.

A male student was alone on the first floor when an unidentified man approached him. The man told the student, “I heard you’re trying to get with my girl, homie!” He then proceeded to walk up to the victim and feed him several knuckle sandwiches to the head and neck.

A woman with the suspect tried to intervene and hold him back, when he told her, “I’ll hit you, too!”

One witness reported the incident to UAPD and corroborated the details of the report. Students were asked to call UAPD if they saw the suspect again. The individuals have yet to be identified.

F*cking pig, mother f*cker

A UAPD officer observed a man trying to conceal himself behind bushes in front of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity on June 26 at 11:40 p.m.

The man said he was just trying to find somewhere to “take a leak,” and added that he was not familiar with the area, as he had arrived in Tucson 12 days prior from Nevada. The officer soon identified him as a homeless individual from an earlier interaction.

Fraternity members living at the residence were informed of the incident. They complained about a lot of homeless activity such as trespassing and theft.

The male was arrested for trespassing at the resident’s request and was transported to the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

On the ride over, he shared his thoughts with the driving officer, calling him a “f*cking pig, mother f*cker.”

“Prepare yourself when you let me out of this piece of sh*t, I’m not going to be nice,” he said. “I’m going to beat the f*ck out of all of you!”

To be completely honest…

A UAPD officer stopped an SUV on June 26 at 8:48 p.m. after failing to stop at a stop sign on Park Avenue and James E. Rogers Way.

The officer noticed the vehicle smelled strongly of marijuana and asked the driver to step out. When asked if there was anything else he might find, the driver said yes and wanted to be completely honest.

A search of the vehicle revealed three plastic bags containing 1.5 grams of cocaine, a large amount of white straws, and one gram of marijuana located in a glass jar.

The driver said he paid $60 for the cocaine and he had it for three months.

He was taken to the Pima County Jail and charged for possession of a narcotic, marijuana and paraphernalia.
