    Police Beat: Feb. 18

    Elevators and alcohol don’t mix

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to the Coronado Residence Hall on Saturday at 12:26 a.m. in reference to a drunken woman.

    When the officer arrived at the dorm he noticed an unconscious woman lying on the floor in the hallway.

    A resident assistant told the officer the woman had thrown up on herself several times in the lobby and the elevator after she entered the building.

    After the officer was unable to wake the woman, Tucson Fire Department arrived and was able to wake her.

    The woman gave her name and birth date, and the officer reported that she had no affiliation with UA.

    She was transported to University Medical Center and was cited and released for minor in possession.

    Date dash upchuck

    A UAPD officer reported an intoxicated woman lying in a UA parking lot at 1325 N. Warren Ave. on Feb. 11 at 9:50 p.m.

    The officer said the woman was sitting in the middle of the parking lot in a puddle of her own vomit, surrounded by about 100 people.

    The students in the lot were waiting for a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity date dash bus.

    The woman had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled strongly of alcohol.

    After the woman admitted to drinking earlier in the night, she was cited and released for minor in possession.

    Another UAPD officer drove the woman back to her dorm at the Posada San Pedro Residence Hall.

    Traffic stop, fake ID

    A UAPD officer pulled over a man for speeding at Second Street and Martin Avenue on Feb. 11 at 5:55 p.m.

    When the officer pulled the man over, he stated he did not know what the speed limit was, and did not drive on university streets very often.

    As the man pulled out a Maryland driver’s license, the officer noticed an Arizona driver’s license under it in his wallet.

    The officer asked to see the Arizona driver’s license as well. He could see the license was fake, and a records check on the license plate number listed on the ID showed it belonged to a woman. The fake license showed the man to be older than 21.

    The man was arrested for possession of fictitious identification. He was cited and released on scene. The ID was placed into UAPD evidence as property and a Code of Conduct referral was sent to the Dean of Students.

    Inappropriate paper written by English student

    The dean of the College of Humanities reported a potentially threatening e-mail she received from a student to UAPD on Feb. 11 at 5:55 p.m.

    According to the dean, the student had been in an English class when he wrote an inappropriate paper for an assignment.

    In the paper, he rips the dress of an English teacher that had the same name as his former English teacher, exposing her breasts.

    After reading the paper, the teacher told the student he could not use the paper for a workshop in class because it was inappropriate.

    The man was then transferred to another English class, where he tried to turn in the same paper, but was again not allowed to do so.

    After attempting to appeal the refusal to accept the paper, a supervisor in the English department told the man he would not be able to take anymore English classes for the remainder of the spring semester.

    The student then sent an e-mail to the dean of the college expressing his anger about being removed from his class.

    The dean said she was uncomfortable with a statement in the e-mail that said, “”We come back to my situation, which I should justifiably find as a cause to retaliate in anger.””

    The officer placed the e-mail into UAPD property as evidence, and a notification was sent to the Dean of Students regarding the man’s behavior.
