UA police requested two students be admitted to the Dean of Students Diversion Program Thursday after a disturbing the peace incident at a fraternity house, reports stated.

UAPD responded to Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity, 1525 E. Drachman Road, at about 2:55 a.m. after someone called to report glass shattering and shouting coming from the house, reports stated.

When police arrived, they heard shouting and glass breaking from inside the house, reports stated.

Two men were shouting at each other as approximately 10 men in suits and ties were sitting against the west wall on the outside of the house, reports stated.

An officer asked the men what they were doing, but no one answered, reports stated.

The two men who were yelling at each other were swaying as the officer questioned them, so the officer asked if they had been drinking, reports stated.

Brock Hay and Jasen Hafon, both 20, both of Pi Kappa Alpha, admitted to drinking eight to ten beers, reports stated.

The officer told them that he was requesting they be placed in the diversion program, reports stated.

He told Hay and Hafon that if they didn't successfully complete the program, minor in possession of alcohol charges would be pursued against them.

Police arrested two men Thursday after pulling them over for speeding.

A UAPD officer saw the men at about 1:43 a.m. in a 1992 Ford F150 pickup truck traveling eastbound on East Speedway Boulevard.

The officer noticed the truck traveling at a high speed so he followed the vehicle to match its speed, police reports stated.

According to reports, the truck was traveling at 51 mph.

The officer pulled James Hensley, 23, of the 7700 block of East Speedway Boulevard, over at North Forgeus Road.

When he approached the vehicle, he noticed the smell of marijuana coming from the cab of the truck, reports stated.

Hensley's eyes seemed bloodshot and his eyelids looked droopy, reports stated.

The officer asked Hensley and his passenger, Jeremy Cossairt, 22, of the 7700 block of East Speedway Boulevard, if they had been smoking marijuana, reports stated.

The two men denied smoking marijuana and consented to a search of the vehicle, reports stated.

The officer found a metal smoking device with possible marijuana residue in the ashtray, reports stated.

As he went around the front of the truck to search the passenger side, he noticed another metal smoking device on the ground behind the front passenger tire, reports stated.

Cossairt admitted to owning the device, reports stated.

The officer cited both men on suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Hensley admitted he had been drinking as well, but a standard field sobriety test didn't reveal any significant impairment, reports stated.

A UA student called police Thursday after finding her car had been broken into over Christmas break.

A UA student was arrested Thursday after the UA Parking and Transportation department found he was in possession of a stolen Zone I parking permit.

UAPD went to Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., to talk to Dino Debernardi, 18, of Coronado, about the parking permit, reports stated.

Debernardi told police he bought the permit for $50 from a man named "Mike" who he said lives in Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, reports stated.

UA's Parking and Transportation department officials told police the permit was reported stolen Nov. 23, reports stated.

Debernardi was cited on suspicion of theft by possession of the parking permit and released.
