University police arrested a man Friday after someone called and said he was acting suspicious near a UA building, police reports stated.

Police went to the Natural Resources building, 520 N. Park Ave., at about 3:20 p.m. to see what the man was doing.

When officers entered the courtyard of the building, they saw Charles Jensen, 57, of a general delivery address, sleeping on a bench in the west end of the courtyard.

Police recognized Jensen from previous contacts and approached him to wake him up, reports stated.

As an officer moved toward Jensen, he noticed a 40-ounce bottle of Mickey's Malt Liquor sitting on the ground next to him, reports stated.

Jensen's penis was also exposed through the zipper fly of his pants, reports stated.

When police woke him up, the heavy smell of alcohol came from his breath, reports stated.

According to reports, Jensen was slurring and referring to himself as the "son of God."

An officer asked him for identification and Jensen told police his last name is spelled Jenson and his date of birth is Dec. 28, 1941, reports stated.

A record check of the information Jensen provided revealed he lied about the spelling of his name and his actual date of birth is Dec. 28, 1942.

Due to previous warnings for criminal trespass, police cited him on suspicion of criminal trespass along with giving false information to an officer.

He was transported to Pima County Jail and booked.

Police arrested two UA students Friday after performing a traffic stop, reports stated.

An officer was patrolling East Sixth Street when he noticed a 1984 Honda Accord driving fast and weaving.

Police stopped the car near Hopi Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fourth St., at 11:23 p.m. and approached the driver.

When the driver rolled his window down, the officer noticed the smell of intoxicants coming from the vehicle, reports stated.

The driver told police he had a beer earlier that morning and the officer didn't notice any alcohol smell coming from the driver, reports stated.

He asked if an officer could search the car, and the driver agreed.

Another officer asked the two other passengers, Michael Martin and Zachary Stansfield, both 20 years old and of the 2600 block of East Alta Vista Street, to exit the vehicle.

The officer found a red cup with what appeared to be beer in it under the front passenger seat and asked Martin if it was his because he was sitting there, reports stated.

Martin said it was and the officer told him to wait by the car because he was under arrest, reports stated.

As the officer moved to place the cup back in the car, Martin began to flee north on North Vine Avenue.

The officer talking to the driver of the car caught Martin on Vine, handcuffed him and placed him in the other officer's custody.

Records checks of the driver revealed he had no warrants so he was released at the scene, but UAPD dispatch confirmed that Stansfield had an outstanding warrant.

Stansfield was cited on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol and for the warrant - failure to appear in court for a possession of marijuana charge.

Martin was cited on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol and resisting arrest for endangering the safety of the officers and men by running into the busy street.

Martin and Stansfield were taken to Pima County Jail where Stansfield was released by pre-trial services and Martin was booked.

Police diverted a UA student Friday to the Dean of Students Office Diversion Program after observing him walking with an open can of beer, reports stated.

The officer was on bike patrol at East Fourth Street and North Highland Avenue at about 11:11 p.m. when he saw Erik Aguirre, 18, of Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., drops a can of Bud Light beer he was carrying under his arm.

The officer asked if he was drinking and he said he was, reports stated.

Aguirre's eyes were bloodshot and he smelled of intoxicants, reports stated.

The officer told him he was going to divert him and he must complete the program or he would be cited on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol.

Aguirre agreed to be diverted.
