University police arrested a woman on suspicion of driving under the influence early Friday morning after she was spotted driving slower than usual, police reports stated.

Kathleen Green, 37, was detained at the intersection of North Picture Rocks and West Wade roads after an officer saw her driving 15 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Reports indicated that Green was lost and possibly disoriented.

An open can of beer was in a cup holder of the Lexus she was driving, and an unopened beer was found under the driver's seat, reports stated.

Green told officers that she drank a 12-pack of beer two hours earlier and that she shared a gram of cocaine with her friend about a half hour before she was stopped, reports stated.

She also admitted to using marijuana on a regular basis, reports stated.

"I knew it was wrong to drive and use coke, marijuana and drink," Green told police.

Green was booked into Pima County Jail.

A student called police Monday night after chasing a suspect he caught stealing his car stereo, police reports stated.

The student told officers he found the driver's side door of his 1994 Toyota truck open when he returned to the vehicle at about 9:20 p.m., reports stated. He had parked the truck at the southeast corner of North Highland Avenue and East Seventh Street.

As he approached the vehicle, the student saw a man leaving with his truck stereo. The suspect got onto a silver BMX bicycle and rode south on Highland, reports stated.

The student told police he chased the suspect on foot, and the man reportedly yelled he would shoot the student if he did not stop chasing him. When the student began to catch up, the suspect threw the stereo at him, reports stated.

The student told police he lost sight of the suspect when he stopped to pick up the stereo.

He said he got a good look at the suspect and would be willing to assist UAPD detectives in creating a composite sketch.
