    Police Beat: September 12

    Knock, knock, no answer

    Two University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to a call from the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall regarding an intoxicated 18-year-old resident at 2 a.m. on Sept. 3.

    When the officers arrived, they were escorted to a room on the fifth floor where the residence assistant on duty said she saw three men enter, carrying an unconscious man. She said they had left the unconscious man on the bed and left quickly.

    The officers continuously knocked on the door, but there was no answer. Due to the seriousness of the situation, the RA was asked to unlock the door. When the officers walked in, they noticed the resident lying on the bed with vomit and saliva coming from his mouth. One officer tried to wake the resident but there was no response, so he performed a sternum rub. The man did not react.

    The Tucson Fire Department arrived soon after and transported the man to the University of Arizona Medical Center.

    The resident was a minor but was not arrested at the time, as he was unaware of the situation and unable to stay conscious for more than a few seconds. According to the report, the resident would be arrested for a minor in possession during the officer’s next shift.

    Gluten allergy results in mess

    A UAPD officer went to Yavapai Residence Hall at 1:51 a.m. on Sept. 3 after a report of an intoxicated student. TFD was already in the women’s restroom with a woman who had been in a restroom stall vomiting when they first arrived at the scene.

    The 18-year-old admitted that she had been drinking earlier. Her eyes were red and watery and her breath smelled like alcohol.

    TFD decided she wasn’t in need of further medical treatment and the UAPD officer walked her to her room. She was read her Miranda rights. She agreed to comply.

    The student said she had consumed an unknown amount of shots and beers at a Sigma Chi fraternity party. She claimed to be allergic to gluten and that the beer possibly made her sick. The officer cited and released her for minor with alcohol in body.

    Dude, where’s my license?

    A UAPD officer found a vehicle with a suspended license plate in the Taco Bell parking lot on Campbell Avenue and Speedway Boulevard at 3:25 a.m. on Sept. 4.

    The officer approached the 21-year-old driver of the black Honda. The non-UA affiliated man identified himself with an Arizona driver’s license. Records showed that his license was suspended and that his vehicle had a mandatory insurance suspended plate.

    UAPD dispatch was called to confirm the driver’s suspended license. The driver was cited and released for displaying a suspended plate. The Honda was towed and impounded for 30 days.
