A University of Arizona student called police Wednesday afternoon after she found a harassing note on her car, police reports stated.

The student told police she parked her white Jeep Grand Cherokee just south of the Science-Engineering Library, 744 N. Highland Ave., at 1 p.m.

When she returned at 3:30 p.m., she found the message on her Jeep stating: "You stole my man you whore. I know who you are and know where you live. I'm going to come and get you later, bitch," reports stated.

The student told police she "had no idea who left the note."

Police arrested an employee on suspicion of driving on a suspended license Wednesday evening after an officer stopped her for driving 45 mph in a 30 mph zone.

Gloria Clarisa Reyes, 33, was driving a gold Pontiac Grand Am east on East Sixth Street at 3:12 a.m. An officer noticed she was going fast and pulled up behind her to monitor her speed, police reports stated.

Reyes, of the 5800 block of South Loghill Place, turned north on North Warren Avenue and then east on East Enke Drive. She parked the car in a service vehicle spot on the southwest side of McKale Center, 1721 E. Enke Drive.

The officer discovered her driver's license was suspended and subsequently cited her. He verbally warned her about speeding.

Reyes was cited and released.

Police arrested two Tucson men on suspicion of underage drinking Feb. 27 after an officer spotted them "arguing" on the side of the road, police reports stated.

The officer was going to the Mt. Graham International Observatory Project office at 11:10 p.m. when he saw a blue Ford truck parked in the east-side lane, blocking the road, reports stated.

The officer noticed the truck was still running, the doors were open and a can of Budweiser beer was sitting on the edge of the truck's bed.

The two men were observed arguing and the officer could hear Casey G. Jensen, 20, accusing Arthur K. Derrick, 20, of sleeping with his girlfriend. Both men were waving their arms in the air during the confrontation, reports stated.

Derrick and Jensen both admitted to drinking. Derrick told police he had a prior arrest for underage drinking and was still on probation, reports stated.

Jensen told police he paid for the beer at a convenience store but asked another customer to buy it for him. Jensen did not provide the officer with the name of the alcohol buyer, reports stated.

The officer discovered Jensen's driver's license was revoked.

They were both cited and released.

A student flagged down an officer Wednesday night after she found "minor scratches" on the left rear bumper of her blue two-door Toyota, police reports stated.

The officer spoke with the student at her car, parked just south of the Visitor's Center on East University Boulevard and North Cherry Avenue.

The student told police she parked her car at 5 p.m. and discovered the scratches when she returned at 8:26 p.m., reports stated.

Police had the car which was parked next to the student's - a yellow two-door Chevrolet - booted by Parking and Transportation Services. The officer noticed the Chevrolet was parked "inches away" from the student's bumper and appeared to have damage to the right side.

Police left a note for the Chevrolet's owner, who then called UAPD later that night. He told police he parked his car in the lot at 6:50 p.m.

The man told police he was "certainly close" to the student's car but denied hitting her. He said he did not feel or hear any type of impact, reports stated.

Police decided, due to a lack of evidence, not to cite the man and the boot was removed.

Police verbally warned three people about skateboarding on campus Wednesday night after catching them skating on the steps of the Modern Languages building.

The officer saw two men on skateboards at 9:42 p.m., doing tricks on the east side stairs of the building, 1423 E. University Blvd.

He spoke with the two men and then a woman sitting on the east side of the building. Police warned and released them, reports stated.
