University police arrested a Tucson man Saturday night on suspicion of drug possession after officers stopped the vehicle he was riding in for speeding, police reports stated.

Officers stopped a 1996 gold Nissan Maxima at the intersection of East Speedway Boulevard and North Park Avenue at 11:43 p.m. Inside they found a passenger, Quinn A. Washington-Moss, 21, of the 5000 block of North Campbell Avenue, reports stated.

Police noticed Washington-Moss had very red eyes and avoided any eye contact, reports stated.

Officers searched the vehicle and discovered a backpack under the passenger's seat that contained a multi-colored ceramic smoking device with residue inside, and a baggie filled with a green leafy substance, reports stated.

Washington-Moss admitted the backpack and the baggie were his, but said the smoking device was not. He was cited on suspicion of drug possession and released on the scene.

A student called police Monday morning after he saw a man expose himself.

Officers found the student near the Science-Engineering Library, 744 N. Highland Ave., at about 11:45 a.m. The student pointed out the man to the officers.

When officers confronted the man, he told officers he was on his cell phone when his pants "inadvertently dropped," reports stated.

The man demonstrated his claim for the officers by simulating talking on the cellular phone and exposing himself to them, reports stated.

The man told police his pants probably dropped because he was not wearing a belt. The officers recommended that the man wear a belt so his pants would stay up in the future, reports stated.
