Unwelcome House Guest

University of Arizona Police Department officers were dispatched to a room in the Yavapai Residence Hall on Feb. 13 in response to a female student sleeping in the wrong room and refusing to leave.

The residents of the room said they usually keep their door unlocked when they are sleeping and the unknown female entered without their knowledge. The female was found sleeping on the lower bunk bed when the officers arrived.

The room residents did not want her charged with trespassing but wanted her to leave.

The female was found to be a resident of Villa del Puente Residence Hall and said she came to Yavapai to visit a friend.

She did not have shoes or personal belongings and said she had gone out to a party with friends the night before, didn’t know how much alcohol she had and didn’t know how she got to Yavapai.

The police officers escorted her back to her room in Villa del Puente. She didn’t have a key to her room. The resident assistant on duty was able to identify her and let her in her room.

She was diverted through the Dean of Students Office for minor in possession body.

You Gotta Go

On Feb. 14, University of Arizona Police Department officers were flagged down by a male who was standing with a female behind a fraternity house. The female walked away, but the male said he was worried about the female.

The female said she lost her phone in the fraternity house and had a strong odor of intoxicants, trouble speaking clearly and watery, bloodshot eyes.

The officer called her phone, but was unable to locate it. The male said the female needed to leave the fraternity house.

The officers told this to the female and she asked if she was being detained. The officers said that she was being detained for trespassing.

The female first identified herself, but officers checked records and could not find a name matching hers in the state. They then informed her that she could be arrested for giving a false name. She provided her driver’s license and said she gave a false name because she didn’t want to have a criminal record.

The officers offered to give her a courtesy ride to her residence hall, but she at first declined because she said there were no cameras in the car and she didn’t trust cops.

The officers then showed her cameras in the car and on the cops, which would film the entire trip. She was then taken to her residence and diverted to the Dean of Students Office.
