University police arrested a student on suspicion of assault without injury Saturday after another student saw him urinate on a security guard during a fraternity party, police reports stated.

Officers went to the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house, 1509 E. Second St., after a security guard working at the party called police to report the "assault."

He told police he felt a "warm stream of fluid on his back" while working at a door on the south side of the house at 3 p.m., reports stated.

The security guard said he looked up and saw the stream of "fluid" coming from a window. He told police he could "tell it was urine from the smell and warmth of it," reports stated.

A member of the fraternity told police he saw Cory J. Lovell, 21, also a Sigma Alpha Epsilon member, urinate out a window.

Lovell, of the 1200 block of North Park Avenue, told officers he poured beer out the window, but did not urinate, reports stated.

Police cited Lovell and released him.

A female student called police Thursday night after a man in his "early 20s" reportedly masturbated in front of her.

She told officers she was walking through a UA parking lot at East Fifth Street and North Tyndall Avenue at 8:48 p.m., when a red pick-up truck pulled into the lot. The student told police she believed the driver was going to ask her for directions.

When she approached the truck, the driver was apparently masturbating, police reports stated.

The student told officers the man never spoke to her. She then walked to the west corner of the lot and called police.

The driver left the parking lot and was last seen driving east on East Fourth Street.

The student told police she could assist UAPD detectives in creating a composite sketch of the suspect.

Police arrested a student on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol early Friday morning after he was seen speeding, police reports stated.

Officers heard Maximillian B. Chappell, 24, squeal the tires on his black Audi as he drove away from the intersection of East Speedway Boulevard and North Warren Avenue.

Chappell was reportedly trying to keep up with a white truck in the lane next to him. Both vehicles were speeding, reports stated.

Police detained Chappell at the UA-area Taco Bell on Speedway and North Campbell Avenue.

He asked officers "why are you stopping me? I wasn't speeding," reports stated.

Police noticed the student's speech was slurred and he reportedly smelled of alcohol.

Chappell told officers he had not been drinking and was on his way home. He later said, "I might have a couple of beers in me," reports stated.

The officer asked Chappell why he was going east on Speedway when he lives in the 900 block of North Euclid Avenue, reports stated.

Police discovered Chappell's driver's license was suspended and that he had two warrants for allegedly writing bad checks, reports stated.

During the sobriety test, Chappell told police he could not complete the tests because he was "not coordinated."

He told the officer he was "sorry" for speeding and that "the other guy revved his engine," reports stated.

Police took Chappell to UAPD where he reportedly failed to complete a breathalyzer test. Chappell spit into the machine and told police "I can't blow anymore."

A reading of .190 was taken from the machine, but because the test was not completed, officers were unable to use the results toward charging Chappell.

Chappell offered to "pee in a cup," but then quickly changed his mind.

Police took him to Pima County Jail. He allegedly cried and asked the officer why he was being arrested. He told police he "couldn't let that other truck make me look like an ass," reports stated.

Chappell was cited on suspicion of DUI, speeding, driving with a suspended license. The two warrants were served and he was booked into jail.

An employee called police Thursday morning after discovering graffiti on a wall of a UA parking garage.

The Parking and Transportation Services employee told officers he found the vandalism on a north wall of the Park Garage, 1140 N. Park Ave., at 9:59 a.m.

The graffiti was written in chalk and said "Fear not thyne sheep for he will show us the way," and "I can still hear you talking to me," police reports stated.

The employee told police he would clean the vandalism from the wall.
