University police arrested a student early Friday morning after she reportedly presented false identification at a campus-area liquor store, police reports stated.

Michelle Towle, 20, of the 800 block of East Wetmore Road was spotted getting into a car parked at U of A Liquors, 1002 E. Sixth St., at about 1 a.m., reports stated.

Towle told police she had just picked up her friend from a bar and the friend wanted to buy some beer, reports stated.

The friend was attempting to buy alcohol at the store's drive-thru window when the clerk asked for Towle's identification too, reports stated.

The clerk told police he thought Towle's California driver license was fake because he ran it through a device that scans the magnetic strips on licenses and the device read Towle as being 20 years old, reports stated.

According to reports, Towle said "a friend of a friend" sold her the license for $100. Towle said she had the license so she could get into bars because all of her friends were 21 years old or older, reports stated.

Towle was cited on suspicion of possessing a false driver license and released at the scene.

A student reported receiving obscene phone calls Thursday night at her dorm room, reports stated.

The student said she was in her room at Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., when she received a call from an unknown man at about 7 p.m., reports stated.

The student said the man addressed her by name and whispered "guess who this is." He then he made several references to masturbating, reports stated.

According to reports, the student said she received a similar message about a week before, but the man did not say her name.

Police told the student to come to the department and pick up pamphlets on how to handle annoying phone calls.

A student called police Thursday afternoon after he spotted a truck that hit him a couple of days ago, reports stated.

An officer met the student in a parking lot near the Science-Engineering Library, 744 E. Highland Ave.

The student pointed out a white pick-up truck parked in the lot and said it was the same vehicle that hit him on Aug. 31, while he was walking near East Fourth Street and North Highland Avenue, reports stated.

The student said he was not injured in the accident and police did not see any damage to the front of the vehicle, reports stated.

According to reports, the student said he knew this was the same vehicle that hit him because of a Hawaiian lei hanging from the rear-view mirror and a unique gold design on the side of the truck.

A background check on the vehicle showed it was registered to a man, but the student said a woman was driving the truck when it hit him, reports stated.

The officer put a business card on the windshield of the vehicle and requested a detective investigation, reports stated.

A student employee reported a man acting suspicious Thursday afternoon in a UA building, reports stated.

The student said he entered an elevator in the Veterinary Science and Microbiology building, 1117 E. Lowell St., where he noticed a man already on the elevator.

According to reports, the man was trying to go to the secured fifth floor but was unable to access it because he did not have a key.

The student said he used his key to access the fifth floor and then started talking with the man, reports stated.

The man said his name was John and the student said the man appeared nervous, reports stated.

The student asked the man for some identification and when the man said he did not have any, the student escorted the man back to the main floor, reports stated.

According to reports, when the elevator doors opened, the student grabbed the man's backpack to lead him to the main office, but the man slipped out of the backpack and sat down on some nearby steps.

When the student turned around, the man ran down the west staircase and out of the building, reports stated.

The backpack contained receipts from a La Quinta Inn, disposable razors, cigarettes, deodorant and a toothbrush. Police found a name inside the backpack but the name had no affiliation to the UA, reports stated.
