A student lab worker was rushed to University Medical Center Tuesday after a mixture of carbon-14 radiation got in her eyes at Life Sciences North, 1333 N. Martin Ave.

The woman told university police she was handling about 100 to 150 milliliters of the carbon-14 at 10:30 a.m. when she dropped the container and the mixture splashed into both eyes.

According to reports, another lab worker was able to help the woman get into an emergency shower and remove her contacts before being taken to UMC.

At UMC, the woman's clothes were disposed of and she was given several treatments including a decontamination shower.

UA Radiation Control conducted radiation checks in and around the lab and determined emission levels to be within a safe amount. The lab was sealed off by Tucson Fire Department until clean up crews arrived.

University police arrested a Tucson man Wednesday after he reportedly was threatening and yelling obscenities to people on the UA Mall.

Stuart A. Green, age unknown, of the 600 Block of East Ninth Street, was booked into Pima County Jail on a charge of disturbing the peace. He was being held in lieu of a $192 bond.

University police arrived about 10:30 a.m. to find that Green was the same man they had warned earlier that morning for disruptive behavior.

A student told police Green was yelling obscenities and he tried to start a fight with some people who were laughing at him, reports stated.
