A student called university police Tuesday night after she discovered the remnants of an egg on her car, police reports stated.

The student told officers she attempted to park in a lot near Jersey Joe's restaurant, 1628 E. Sixth St., at 4:30 p.m. She reportedly got into an argument about a parking space with the eatery's owner.

The student said she decided to park in a UA lot on Sixth Street and North Cherry Avenue.

When she returned to her gray BMW at 6:30 p.m., she discovered a smashed egg on her vehicle, reports stated.

The student told police she wiped off the splattered egg and found no damage to the car.

Because of the argument with the restaurant's owner, the student said she believed that he tossed the egg, reports stated.

Police attempted to contact the owner, but could not because the eatery was closed.

Police warned a student not to follow his ex-girlfriend Monday night after he was seen lingering near the UA Main Library, police reports stated.

The female student told police she was in the library, 1510 E. University Blvd., at 8:34 p.m. using the information desk telephone when her ex-boyfriend walked into the building.

The female student then walked toward a crowd of people because the male student reportedly was following her through the library.

She located two off-duty Tucson Police officers and told them about the situation. They escorted her out of the library and told the male student to leave the woman alone, reports stated.

She told UAPD her ex-boyfriend had "threatened to kill her several times," reports stated.

As the officer was speaking with the student, he heard a man's voice say "here I am officer."

The female student told the officer the man was her ex-boyfriend. She then said she needed to "leave now," reports stated.

Officers spoke with the male student, who denied following his ex-girlfriend and said he had the right to visit the library, reports stated.

He said he wanted his ex-girlfriend to stay away from him and his friends because she "ruined their lives," reports stated.

The male student waited at a nearby bike rack while police spoke to his ex-girlfriend and her friend.

As officers spoke to the women, the male student approached the group and asked for directions to a bathroom, reports stated.

Police finished speaking to the women and they left the area. The officer then heard a female voice yell "officer, officer!"

Police went back and saw the ex-boyfriend involved in a verbal confrontation with his ex-girlfriend's friend, reports stated.

When confronted by the officers, the man said he went to use the bathroom and was not harassing his ex-girlfriend.

The man was warned for disorderly conduct. The officers also informed him of their intention to forward the case to the Dean of Students' Office.

He told police if his ex-girlfriend planned to press charges against him, he would file charges against her, reports stated.

A student called police Friday afternoon after another student reportedly threatened him, police reports stated.

The student, a resident of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., told police an acquaintance of his and a man he didn't know came to his room about a week ago.

The men reportedly were trying to collect some money the student owed.

The student told police he was indebted to the man, but asked them to leave.

On Friday, the student returned again with a different companion. The Arizona-Sonora resident told them to leave his room.

The student reportedly said to the resident "What are you going to do? There's more of us than you. We'll kick your ass," reports stated.

The resident warned that he would call police if they didn't leave. After they refused to go, the student called UAPD.

The men reportedly left five minutes later and police were unable to locate them.
