University police responded Wednesday morning to a report of a possible assault after a man was taken to the hospital with injuries, police reports stated.

The man was at University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., when police arrived to check the situation, reports stated.

The doctor caring for the man said he had what looked like "paddle marks" across his buttocks, reports stated.

Police noticed that the man's breath smelled like alcohol, and he admitted to drinking underage, reports stated.

Police asked the man if the marks on his buttocks were related to a fraternity hazing incident, but the man refused to say what happened to him or press charges, reports stated.

Police recommended that the man be placed in the Dean of Students Diversion Program for drinking underage instead of issuing a minor in possession citation, reports stated.

Police responded Wednesday to a report of possible assault at a residence hall, reports stated.

A UA student called police at about 12:30 a.m. after a conflict with a fellow resident at La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., reports stated.

Police arrived to the man's room and found that he was bleeding and breathing heavily, reports stated.

The man said another resident was visiting his room and wanted to use his roommate's computer, reports stated.

The visitor was using the computer when the man said he wanted to go to bed, reports stated.

The man told the visitor to leave, and when the visitor stayed, the man became angry, reports stated.

During the conversation with the man, an officer noticed that he was slurring his speech and had the smell of alcohol on his breath, reports stated.

The officer asked if he had been drinking, and the man told him that he had two beers at a house party earlier, reports stated.

He continued to say that the visiting resident hit him twice during the conflict, reports stated.

The officers then questioned the other resident and asked him what happened, reports stated.

According to reports, the visitor said he was in the room, and was about ready to leave when the man became aggressive and called him names, reports stated.

He admitted to hitting him with a closed fist once, reports stated.

A witness to the incident said first man, not the visitor, was the aggressor, reports stated.

Police deemed that there was no assault and requested that the incident be turned over to the hall director to seek the man's entry into the Dean of Students Diversion Program for drinking underage, reports stated.

Police are seeking a woman who falsely identified herself as her sister when she was pulled over for speeding about four months ago, reports stated.

According to reports, a UAPD officer pulled a woman over for driving 37 mph in a 15 mph zone on June 6, and let her go after she gave what seemed to be the correct identification, reports stated.

She gave police a date of birth, Social Security number and name that matched her description after she couldn't produce her driver license, but the information was actually the identification of her sister, reports stated.

When the woman's sister showed up in court Sept. 30 to prove that she hadn't committed the violation, she told police that her sister had previously used her identification and her younger sister's identification when pulled over during traffic violations, reports stated.

The sister chose to press all applicable charges in the matter, including driving without insurance, driving without registration, driving with a suspended license and giving false identification to a police officer, reports stated.

The woman did not have to pay the fines for her sister's violations, reports stated.

A UA student contacted police Wednesday after someone stole her wallet from a bench on campus, reports stated.

The woman was sitting on a bench in front of the Biological Sciences East building, 1330 S. Campus Drive at about 9:40 a.m. when the wallet was stolen, reports stated.

According to reports, the student said she was reading a textbook, and when she gathered her books to go to class, the wallet was gone.

She said she did not see anyone take the wallet while she was reading, reports stated.

The wallet contained her CatCard, three credit cards and $20 in cash, reports stated.
