    Police Beat

    An officer responded to a broken window and an open door at 1326 E. Mabel St. at 7:57 p.m. March 31.

    The officer found an open door with a broken window on the southwest corner of the building.

    The door led to a storage room, and it did not look as if anything had been disturbed.

    The floor near the door was clean and looked as if the glass had been swept up.

    The rest of the building was secure.

    The officer left a business card on the door for the building monitor.


    A man was arrested for being underage with spirituous liquor in body at Yuma Residence Hall, 1107 E. James E. Rogers Way, at 2:32 a.m. March 29.

    An officer responded to the dormitory to assist other officers with a drunk man walking around the building.

    As the officer traveled there, a dispatcher reported the man running westbound on East James E. Rogers Way, and the reporting person said the man was acting obnoxious.

    The officer met with the reporting person, who pointed to a man standing in front of the building. As the officer approached the man, there were several Yuma dorm residents standing by him saying they were trying to help him and keep him in the area because of his condition.

    The officer attempted to make contact with the man when he turned away and started to walk eastbound. He was unstable on his feet, swaying and stumbling.

    The officer ordered him to stop several times, and he continued to walk away.

    The officer asked him his name, and he responded by saying “”Si, señor”” several times in slurred speech, according to reports.

    As the man walked toward the entrance to the building, the officer grabbed his left wrist, and he attempted to pull away using the handicap railing on the front walkway.

    The officer shouted several times for the man to let go, and he let go of the railing. The officer assisted him to the ground, where he was handcuffed.

    While being asked questions, the man continually answered, “”Si, señor,”” according to reports. He was identified by a New Mexico identification card found on him.

    When asked if he was a UA student, he said he was here visiting friends but would not give their names or where they lived.

    He said he did not want to get them in trouble and admitted to having a few drinks.

    The man kept saying “”Si, señor”” to all questions and became belligerent and would not follow orders.

    He was transported to Pima County Jail.


    Someone stole a Kanye West banner from the palm trees just east of Old Main, 1200 E. University Blvd, between the hours of 5 p.m. March 28 and 2:51 p.m. March 31.

    An officer contacted a woman who wished to report property belonging to the university stolen.

    She said someone had taken a 10-foot-by-5-foot banner promoting the rapper’s April 24 Glow in the Dark Tour show to take place on campus.

    She said she last saw the banner around 5 p.m. March 28. She said it had been hanging high off the ground between two palm trees.

    The woman placed the value of the banner at $450.

    Police have no suspects or witnesses.
