Police Beat: April 10

Cleanliness is next to godliness

A non-UA affiliated man was issued a six-month exclusionary order for all UA libraries due to poor personal hygiene on April 7.

The Library Operations Supervisor contacted the University of Arizona Police Department when he noticed a man at a library computer with bad personal hygiene in violation of UA library policy.

The supervisor told the officers the man had been in the library in the past and had always been asked to leave because of his bad hygiene. The man had always left when asked to do so, but the supervisor wanted further action taken.

The UAPD officers approached the man and could notice his foul smell from 20-25 feet away. The officers advised the man about the library’s personal hygiene policy, and the man said he was not able to shower often. He also told the officers he had an expired exclusionary order.

The officers then gave the man an exclusionary order and advised him that any contact with a UA library could result in arrest for trespassing.

Flipping the bird

A UA student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for being a minor in possession of alcohol on April 6.

Two UAPD officers found the student passed out on the floor in a sitting area in Villa del Puente Residence Hall. The Tucson Fire Department woke the student using a sternum rub. He displayed several signs of extreme intoxication, including red watery eyes and slurred speech. The student had also soiled himself.

The student had many mood swings while speaking to the UAPD officers. He told them where he lived but flipped off the officers and shook his head at other questions, including when he was asked where he had been drinking and how much he had drunk.

The officers and TFD escorted the student back to his room, but he was very confrontational. TFD medically cleared the student and left, and the UAPD officers advised him that he would be contacted by the Dean of Students Office.

While they were speaking, the student got up and cursed at the officers, yelling, “Get … out of my room!” He continued cursing at the officers until they left.

As they were walking away, the student came into the hallway from his room and made derogatory remarks at the officers while flipping them off.

The officers waited until the student went back inside his room and closed the door.
