But, I really have to pee…

University of Arizona Police Department officers went to Highland Market on April 10, where a man not affiliated with the UA had urinated.

The man had asked the manager to use the restroom, but the manager said he couldn’t because the restrooms were locked. The manager started counting money when he saw the man standing behind a pillar.

He then walked to the pillar and saw the man standing there with a large puddle of liquid on the floor. Upon review of the video footage for the night, the man was seen walking around the inside the market, walking around bathroom then standing behind the pillar. His posture in the video indicated that he was urinating behind the pillar.

The man was arrested for criminal nuisance and taken to Pima County Jail.


On April 10, University of Arizona Police Department officers were dispatched to the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center when the motion detector alarm in the pool area activated.

An officer saw a man jump over the wall, land on the roof of a UA golf cart and then jump to the ground. A second man followed him, but slipped and landed on his face on the golf cart. He stood up and another man jumped over the wall onto the golf cart as well.

The three men, who are not affiliated with the UA and at least one of which was a Tucson High School student, were fully clothed and dry, but without shoes.

The three men said they had gone to the UA campus that night to attend Spring Fling then later went to get pizza. When they were getting pizza, they heard people inside the pool and climbed over the pool wall gate to see a different group of men jumping off the diving board into the pool.

They saw officers arriving and jumped over the wall where an officer saw them. The three men were cited for trespassing.
