A student set off a fire sprinkler in her dorm room Wednesday night after putting a hanger on a sprinkler head, police reports stated.

University police went to La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., at about 6 p.m. after fire sprinklers were activated on the second floor, reports stated.

According to reports, police went to the room where the sprinkler was activated and noticed a clothes hanger was dangling from the sprinkler head. The L200 wing of the residence hall was flooded.

The Tucson Fire Department arrived and shut off the water and allowed students to return to their rooms to secure their valuables, reports stated.

According to reports, the student said she only wanted to hang the hanger up there and she did not think the sprinkler would go off.

Water leakage was later found on the first floor directly underneath the L200 wing, reports stated.

A student reported Wednesday night that she suspected her roommate had marijuana in their dorm room, reports stated.

Police went to Coconino Residence Hall, 1003 N. Olive Drive, at about 10:30 p.m. where they met with the reporting student.

According to police, the student said her roommate admitted to smoking marijuana the past weekend and the student said she has seen her roommate give some suspected marijuana to another resident.

Police talked to the roommate and asked to search her room, reports stated.

According to reports, an officer found a small bag of an unusable quantity of suspected marijuana powder along with 11 mini bottles of alcohol, a half bottle of tequila and an unopened bottle of hard cider in the room.

The roommate said the alcohol and the suspected marijuana was hers, reports stated.

According to reports, the roommate told police she gave away all the suspected marijuana to a woman and she did not smoke any of it.

Police enrolled the student in the UA Dean of Students Diversion Program for an alcohol violation. Police told the roommate she would not be cited for possession of suspected marijuana because the quantity was an unusable amount, reports stated.

Police went to a residence hall early Wednesday morning after someone reportedly pulled a fire alarm.

An officer went to Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., at about 2 a.m. after a fire alarm was activated on the third floor, reports stated.

A resident assistant told police he noticed a man running from the residence hall west on Fifth Street, reports stated.

According to reports, the resident assistant chased the man but did not catch him. He said the man turned north on North First or Second Avenue.

A video camera in the dorm recorded a man pulling the fire alarm matching the description given by the resident assistant, reports stated.

According to reports, several Coronado staff members viewed the video tape but no one recognized the man.

A woman went to police Wednesday afternoon to ask an officer to serve an injunction against a student, reports stated.

The woman said she was serving her neighbor, who is a UA student, an injunction against harassment because he has threatened to physically harm her and her boyfriend, reports stated.

According to reports, the injunction states the student cannot call, write or talk to the woman.

An officer located the student in the Chemistry and Biological Sciences building, 1340 E. University Blvd., and issued the injunction to him, reports stated.

The student requested a hearing on the injunction issued by the court because he said "he is in fear of the woman's lies," reports stated.

An employee reported graffiti Wednesday morning on a UA building.

The employee said when she arrived at the Visitor's Center, 1600 E. University Blvd., she noticed graffiti had been etched on the outer window on the northeast side of the building, reports stated.
