    Police Beat: April 17

    Loudness to lock up

    A female student studying in the Main Library called UAPD because she heard a couple arguing loudly outside the library at 2:12 p.m. on Thursday. She told officers that the two were yelling at each other and she did not think they were students. When officers arrived at the scene, neither the couple nor the caller could be found.

    Officers searched the surrounding areas and found the couple down the street. They asked them if they were near the library earlier and if they had been raising their voices. The couple said they had but had since had resolved the issue. Officers asked to see their licenses so they could run background checks on the couple. The background check showed that the man had a warrant out for his arrest. Officers searched and arrested the man before taking him to Pima County Jail.

    Tags gone bad

    University of Arizona Police Department officers pulled over a vehicle for having expired tags at 5 a.m. on Thursday. The officers approached the car, which had December 2011 tags, and began speaking to the female driver. The woman said she was from California and that she was not affiliated with the UA. When officers told her that her tags were expired, she said she knew and would replace them soon.

    The officers then spoke with the California Motor Vehicle Division, who told them that her registration and insurance had been expired for more than six months. Officers asked if she knew about this and she said she has not had time to take care of her car since moving to Arizona months ago. Officers cited her for driving with an expired license and without insurance. They decided to let her keep her vehicle instead of impounding it.
