University police arrested a UA student Saturday night after he hit a parked car while driving on campus, police reports stated.

A security officer saw a 1998 Volkswagen Jetta at about 9:40 p.m. speeding east on East Enke Drive.

The security officer then heard tires squealing and a crash, so he went to check what happened, reports stated.

When the officer arrived at the intersection of Enke and North Campbell Avenue, he saw the Jetta on the north side of the street and a BMW next to a light pole across the street.

According to reports, the driver of the Jetta, Jordan Feld, 20, of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., staggered out of the car as the officer arrived.

Feld had blood on his head and face, so the security officer called for a medic.

Feld was transported to University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., where he received stitches for lacerations on his ear.

Feld was cited on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, minor in possession of alcohol, minor operating a vehicle with liquor in his body, expired out-of-state car registration and failure to control speed to avoid an accident.

He was released to his friends at UMC.

A student called UAPD after someone stole bottled water from a concession stand, reports stated.

The student said he left the concession stand on the east side of the Chemical Biological Sciences Building, 1340 E. University Blvd., at about 11:15 a.m.

The concession stand was missing when he returned at 11:45 a.m.

The stand was found by the student and an officer at about noon on the sidewalk north of Hopi Residence Hall, 1440 E. Fourth St., reports stated.

The student checked the stand and found 60 bottles of Rimrock bottled water missing.

He told police he didn't witness the theft of the concession stand, reports stated.

Police arrested five UA students Saturday morning after making a traffic stop on campus.

An off-duty officer was driving on East Speedway Boulevard when he saw a 1994 Buick driving approximately 10 mph over the speed limit.

While he followed the Buick to a parking lot south of Apache-Santa Cruz Residence Hall, the off-duty officer saw white bags being thrown out the window, reports stated.

The officer called for back-up and stopped the Buick at East Enke Drive and North Warren Avenue.

According to reports, the driver, Matthew James, 19, of La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., smelled of alcohol.

James told police he was diabetic and had not been drinking, reports stated.

Another officer at the scene spoke with the other four occupants in the car.

Sherri Lekvold, 19, and Corinne Behringer, 19, both of Delta Delta Delta Sorority, 1541 E. Second St.; Louis Covelli, 20, of the 1300 block of East Fort Lowell Street; and Michael Bolton, 20, of the 1100 block of East Eighth Street, admitted to underage drinking, reports stated.

The first officer called a medic to check James' blood sugar, and a finger-prick blood test revealed normal blood sugar levels.

James then told police he had been drinking, and he drove because he was the least drunk, reports stated.

The officer read James his rights, and transported him to UAPD station for a breath test.

He was cited on suspicion of minor operating a vehicle with liquor in his body and released to walk home.

The other officer cited the four passengers on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol and released them at the scene of the traffic stop.

She left her items in a locker at about 5:15 p.m. in the women's locker room at the Student Recreation Center. She said she wasn't sure if she put her lock on the locker.

The student's backpack, gift certificates, $10 in cash, driver license, CatCard, Social Security card, video rental cards, a CostCo membership card, AAA card and keys were missing when she returned at about 6:15 p.m., reports stated.
