    At 8:38 a.m. an officer responded to the union in reference to a report of a disoriented man talking to himself. The man said he was “”OK”” and was just hanging around the UA Mall to “”get free stuff”” from the vendors, according to reports.

    At 11:16 a.m., an officer responded to McKale Center, 1721 E. Enke Drive, to discuss a report of harassment. He met with a receptionist who said the office had received numerous phone calls from a man since the weekend before Valentine’s Day.

    She said staff members were receiving the phone calls up to eight times a day. The number was private and untraceable.

    She provided several dates and times when the phone calls were received and said the department did not want to pursue harassment charges, only that they wanted the calls, and subsequent hang-ups, to stop.

    University Information Technology Services was contacted and provided dates and times when the team offices received the calls. A UITS representative provided the officer with the number making the calls.

    He said he hung up prior to talking to a staff member because he was nervous.

    During the conversation, the officer could tell the man suffered from a mental disability. The man was told to stop calling and hanging up or he could be arrested and charged with harassment.

    The receptionist said she was familiar with the man and that he called and left hard-to-understand voicemails inquiring about coaching opportunities with the football team.
