    Police Beat: Sept. 17

    Pay your tickets

    A University of Arizona Police Department officer stopped a car speeding down Campbell Avenue, near campus on Tuesday.

    After running a driver’s license check on the registered owner of the car, results came back that the owner’s license was suspended.

    The man stated that he was aware that he hadn’t yet paid for a previous traffic ticket. He said that he was on the way to the department of corrections where he works in the kitchen as a contracted worker.

    The vehicle was impounded for 30 days.

    Cycle swiped during summer

    A mountain bike was stolen from one of the sorority houses on campus, without any witnesses or suspect information that might lead to getting it back.

    A woman reported that she had left her bike at the bike racks at her sorority for the summer and that she had secured it with a cable lock. She stated that it might have been stolen sometime between last May and Aug. 15, which is the day she returned to campus and found her bicycle missing.

    The woman was unable to provide a serial number for the bike. It was not registered with Parking and Transportation Services. UAPD officers told her a victim’s rights form would be mailed to her.

    Don’t have a car? Call the cops

    A UAPD officer was dispatched to Highland Market in reference to a man who had burned his leg and needed to be transported to University Medical Center on Monday.

    When the officer arrived at the scene, he met with the man who had been burnt. The man stated that he needed a ride to UMC because he didn’t have a way to get there and his leg was hurting him badly.

    The officer drove him to the hospital.

    Following the crowd isn’t an excuse

    While working for a UA-sanctioned party on Sunday, a UAPD officer observed a woman struggling to remain upright and having difficulty maintaining her balance as she swayed in all directions.

    The officer first saw the woman earlier in the evening when she entered the party in a good and stable condition. After leaving for a short time, the woman attempted to reenter the party, but the officer stopped her due to her instability.

    She identified herself to the officer, who noticed she had red, watery eyes and an odor of alcohol coming from her breath.

    The woman said, “”OK, so I had something to drink at this party. Do you know how many other drunk, underage people are inside there?””

    She also said, “”I am 20 years old and you cannot do this to me, I have worked too hard to get where I am.””

    The officer informed her that due to her age, statement and signs and symptoms she exhibited, she was under arrest for minor in possession. The officer issued her a citation for that charge.
