University police arrested two students on suspicion of possession of fake identification Saturday morning.

Lauren Gans, 20, and Romy Segall, 18, were walking by an officer at the Delta Chi fraternity, 1701 E. First St., at 12:05 a.m. when they were stopped and asked for their identification, police reports stated. The officer smelled alcohol on their breath, according to police reports.

Both Gans and Segall turned over Florida drivers licenses with the identical birth dates, reports stated. The officer noticed a different shade of blue behind the two students' photographs, reports stated. Both licenses also restricted the students from driving at night, an endorsement both attributed to their contact lenses, reports stated.

A computer check indicated no record of either license, according to reports.

Segall told the officer both licenses were false and the two had bought them from "a friend of a friend," reports stated. Segall said she paid $30 for the license, while Gans said she paid $50

Segall gave police the person's name, according to reports.

Both students were cited and released at the scene.

University police arrested a student on suspicion of using someone else's identification Friday night at a campus fraternity party.

An officer party patrol at the Delta Chi fraternity, 1701 E. First St., cited Casey S. Pugh, 18, determining the photograph on a drivers license "looked nothing like her," police reports stated.

The officer saw Pugh approach a table and present the identification to someone at the party. The officer then examined the license.

Pugh told the officer the license belonged to a friend who was also at the party, reports stated.

No one responded to a public address announcement requesting the friend's help in sorting out the confusion and Pugh was cited for using the drivers license, according to reports.

"There are a million fake IDs in there. Why don't you pick on them? I didn't even drink that much. There are people in there who are wasted," Pugh told the officer, reports stated.

An employee called police Friday morning after she was threatened by a UA student's father, police reports stated.

The woman told officers she was talking to the student's father on a telephone in the Administration building, 1401 E. University Blvd., at 9:30 a.m. when he began making menacing comments.

The employee told police she was advising the student's father about late tuition penalties when he said, "I will personally come down there and rip your face off," reports stated.

The woman told police she did not want to press charges but wanted the incident documented because the student's father knew her name.

A student called police Saturday evening complaining about a harassing phone call.

The woman told police she was at home at 7:47 p.m. when a man called and started moaning into the phone, police reports stated.

"Suck my dick," the caller told the woman.

The man did not call back.

University police took a student to University Medical Center early Saturday morning after she told police she ingested a large amount of painkillers.

Officers responding to the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, 1473 E. First St., about 5:20 a.m. found the student lying incoherent on the floor of a member's room, police reports stated.

The fraternity member told officers he had been sleeping when the student came into his room and took several pills, then called police, reports stated.

When officers arrived, they found empty bottles of aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as a half-empty bottle of acetaminophen in the fraternity member's room.

The fraternity member told police he did not know how many pills were in the bottles before the student took them. He also said he did not know the student, reports stated.

Officers took her to UMC, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., where the student regained coherency.
