The human traffic cone with sass

Two UA students were arrested for minors in possession after holding up traffic while walking through a crosswalk.

A University of Arizona Police Department officer saw a group of female students in a crosswalk. When the light turned green, two female students were still in the crosswalk, obstructing traffic.

One of the stopped drivers honked their horn and one of the students, who was dressed in black, flipped off the cars and shouted obscenities. The other student was dressed as an angel, wearing a white dress and a halo.

The officer, after seeing all of this occur, stopped the two students once they crossed the street, and they each gave the officer their name. The officer noted that they both smelled strongly of alcohol.

The officer first talked to the woman in the angel costume, who told the officer she lived in the Coronado Residence Hall and had been drinking at Theta Chi fraternity. She also told the officer that she thought there would be time to cross the street.

After speaking with her, the officer spoke with the other female student, who had flipped off the drivers. She, too, told the officer she drank at the same fraternity. She explained to the officer that she flipped off the drivers in response to them making the gesture first and that the drivers did not abide the left turn yield.

The officer told the student dressed in black that the drivers of the cars were not turning left and that even if they were, the drivers did not have to yield because the women had entered the crosswalk when the hand was flashing red. This upset her, and she told the officer he was being rude.

Both of the female students were also cited for impeding traffic while in the crosswalk.

Sleeping Beauty wakes for nobody

A UA student called 911 because her roommate was vomiting.

A UAPD officer arrived at Hopi Lodge after receiving a report of an intoxicated student who needed medical assistance. UA Emergency Medical Services also arrived at the scene to evaluate the intoxicated student.

After entering the dorm room, the officer noticed vomit on the floor near the bed. The drunken student who produced said vomit was in the bed.

Another officer arrived at the room, and the roommate of the intoxicated student told that officer she had called 911 after waking up to her roommate vomiting.

EMS finished the medical evaluation and cleared the student. The officer attempted talking to the student, but she could not stay awake. The officer shook her to wake her up.

When she finally woke up, the officer noticed her makeup was smudged on her face and that she had bloodshot eyes. He told the student that she was going to be diverted to the Dean of Students Office.

The female student simply went back to sleep after this.
