Kitchen Nightmare

University of Arizona Police Department officers responded to reports of criminal damage in the Pima Residence Hall. A man staying nearby for a UA summer program had entered the laundry room smelling of alcohol and urine and had begun yelling insults at those present. He continued cursing before Pima residents managed to get the man out of the building. However, the man re-entered the building and entered the kitchen, knocking over tables and chairs and throwing dishes and glasses on the floor before leaving.

Officers later located the man identified by witnesses. He told UAPD officers he had drank a few beers and a shot of Hennessey while at a bar. UAPD cited the man and released him to a UA faculty member who advised the man that the incident was a violation of a no-alcohol policy of the summer program. The man was removed from the program.

Hey Mickey, You’re So Fined

UAPD officers observed a woman driving erratically and crossing over the line that separates traffic lanes multiple times while traveling on Campbell Avenue. Officers initiated a traffic stop and noticed the driver showing signs of intoxication.

She told officers that she had one beer that evening, had left a party at a friend’s house and was on her way to another. She told officers she had consumed a 40 ounce bottle of Mickey’s Fine Malt Liquor. Officers asked her if she felt she was intoxicated, to which she replied, “I didn’t think so until now.” Officers then performed a field sobriety test and administered a Breathalyzer test, which showed a blood alcohol content of .154. Officers cited the woman for a DUI, placed her in handcuffs and waited for a sober friend to pick her up.
