A student and another man were arrested early Thursday morning after university police noticed them drinking near a campus-area convenience store, police reports stated.

Michael Zundelevich, 18, of the 600 block of North Highland Avenue and Aaron Andrikopoulos, 18, of California were spotted by police sitting on the north side of StarMart, 501 N. Park Ave., reports stated.

When an officer approached the men, Zundelevich hid a bottle behind his legs, reports stated.

According to reports, the officer noticed an unopened 40-ounce bottle of malt liquor behind Zundelevich and two more bottles to the right of Zundelevich.

One of the bottles had been opened, reports stated.

An officer asked for the men's identification and Zundelevich gave him a California driver license indicating Zundelevich was 18 years old, reports stated.

When the officer looked in Zundelevich's wallet he discovered a fictitious California driver license, reports stated.

Zundelevich said he had a "transient-type" man purchase the alcohol, reports stated.

Andrikopoulos said he stayed outside the store while Zundelevich bought the alcohol and did not know if Zundelevich used the fake identification, reports stated.

According to reports, Andrikopoulos said that one of the bottles was for him.

Both men were cited on suspicion of minor in possession.

Zundelevich was also cited on suspicion of possession of a fictitious license.

Andrikopoulos was booked into Pima County Jail on a $162 bond because he was not an Arizona resident, and Zundelevich was released at the scene, reports stated.
