    A man was arrested for a minor in possession of alcohol and possession of a fictitious driver’s license at 11:20 p.m. Friday.

    A police aide reported to the University of Arizona Police Department that a man was stumbling westbound on East Second Street, possibly intoxicated. An officer and the UAPD Chief made contact with the man west of the intersection of East Second Street and North Mountain Avenue.

    The man removed his California driver’s license from his wallet to verify his information, but the officer observed an additional Texas driver’s license underneath it with a birth date of March 13, 1986. An identification check from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles reported that the license was a fake.

    The man said he was walking from his friend’s house. His appearance was disheveled, he was perspiring, his eyes were red, watery and bloodshot, his speech was slurred, and the officer detected a strong odor of alcohol on his breath. The man denied drinking or being intoxicated.

    The man was cited and released. Police confiscated the fake Texas driver’s license.

    A female student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for underage drinking after police found her on the street with her private parts exposed Friday.

    An officer was traveling westbound on East First Street and observed a female standing on the northeast corner of the intersection of East First Street and North Martin Avenue with her genital area exposed and her teal skirt pulled up to just below her waist.

    The officer tried to conduct a field interview, but she began walking away. She was barefoot, carrying high heels and a bag, and was unsteady on her feet. The officer apprehended her and placed her into handcuffs so she would not walk away again.

    The student had a strong odor of intoxicants coming from her mouth. She was rambling and incoherent, and admitted to consuming mixed drinks at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house, 1801 E. First St.

    She said she could not remember who served her drinks but decided to leave the party because she had never consumed alcohol before. She added that she was trying to walk home to Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St.

    The officer asked the female how her skirt got pulled up and she said she was unsure. The officer then asked if she was a victim of sexual assault and she said no.

    She was cited for being a minor with spirituous liquor in the body.

    A female student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for minor in possession of alcohol after stumbling around the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University Blvd., on Friday.

    Police responded to a 911 call from an unknown passer-by who reported that he had seen an extremely intoxicated female walking through the SUMC breezeway. Police made contact with her near the Marley building, 1145 E. Fourth St.

    She had a strong odor of intoxicants coming from her mouth and was swaying from side to side and front to back during a field interview. Her eyes were red and watery, and she was slurring her speech as she spoke. She said she had been drinking alcohol at either the Phi Gamma Delta house or the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house, 1509 E. Second St.

    Someone stole a banner from the west side of the Park Student Union, 615 N. Park Ave., on Friday.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.
