    Police Beat: September 18

    Perpetrator pens penises on poster

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a reference of criminal damage at Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall at 9:04 a.m. on Sept. 10. The residence hall’s community director told the officer that a resident’s property was damaged between 9 p.m. on Sept. 8 and 4 a.m. the following morning.

    The resident had made a flier using a photo of his head, with the headline “Dread Maintainer needed,” his name and two money symbols. The flier was an advertisement requesting help to keep up his dread-lock hairstyle. He hung the flier right outside his dorm room.

    An unknown subject drew two penises, one on his forehead and one on his lips. A swastika had also been drawn on his forehead. It was determined that the subject used a fine black felt pen to sketch the drawings on the flier.

    When the community director approached the resident, he claimed that the drawings were a joke. He said that one of his friends drew the drawings, but he wouldn’t identify the friend. He did mention that the friend wasn’t a resident of the residence hall and had been a guest of the resident during the time of the incident.

    When asked, the resident said that he didn’t feel threatened and didn’t want UAPD to be involved further. The flier was placed into evidence.

    2 shots … No, 4 shots — OK, 12 shots

    A UAPD officer responded to a report of an unresponsive, highly intoxicated 18-year-old resident at Likins Residence Hall at 12:50 a.m. on Sept. 8. When the officer arrived at the scene, a resident assistant escorted him to a room on the fourth floor. The officer entered the room and saw the resident lying on his side on the bed. He shouted loudly at the resident, but there was no response.

    The officer performed a sternum rub on the resident, waking him up. When asked how much he had to drink, the resident admitted to taking two shots of Captain Morgan. The officer noticed that when the resident sat upright, he had vomit on his pants. He said he didn’t have any form of identification, but the RA then pointed to the resident’s wallet on his desk.

    When asked again how much he had to drink, the resident admitted to having four shots of Captain Morgan spiced rum. The RAs present at the time said that they were told the resident had 12 shots. Emergency personnel from Tucson Fire Department arrived later and decided the resident didn’t need to be transported to the hospital.

    The resident apologized for everything that had happened and claimed that he couldn’t remember where he had been drinking or who gave him the alcohol. The officer cited and released him for minor in possession of alcohol in body.

    Graffiti burns Speech building

    A UAPD officer arrived at the Speech building at about 10:19 a.m. on Sept. 8, after receiving a report of graffiti. When the officer arrived at the scene, he noticed a large section of the north brick wall covered with black spray paint, showing a burning building.

    The drawing was 90 inches wide and 43 inches tall. A blotch of red or orange paint was seen at the edge of the drawing. The officer took several photographs of the graffiti for evidence. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.
