Two university employees called police Thursday night after someone repeatedly rang their doorbell, reports stated.

The husband and wife, who live on UA property, said a young male rang the doorbell at their house and ran away before they could answer it.

The same thing happened on the previous night.

The female employee said she got scared when the suspect would ring the doorbell and run away while she was home alone.

The couple suspects that a teen-age friend of their neighbor may be the instigator of the prank, reports stated.

Due to poor lighting at the residence, officers advised the employees to contact the UA about getting a motion light installed on the property. Police said it could act as a deterrent to the suspect.

Officers plan to follow up with the teen-ager regarding the incidents.

University police arrested a man for an outstanding bad check warrant after the car he was riding in ran a stop light, reports stated.

Officers on patrol at East Second Street and North Mountain Avenue saw a vehicle run a red light and stopped the vehicle a couple of blocks away.

The driver said he did not have his driver license when officers approached him.

A background check on the driver, George Clevidence, 37, of the 9000 block of East Golf Links Road, revealed he had a suspended license. The license plates on his car were found to be fictitious also.

The car was registered to his brother, who was a passenger in the car.

The passenger, Richard Clevidence, 31, of the same address, produced a driver license to confirm his identity.

A check on his background found he had a Pima County Sheriff's Department warrant for issuing a bad check.

Richard Clevidence was arrested for the warrant and taken to Pima County Jail.

The driver, George Clevidence, was cited for having a suspended license, failure to stop at a stop light, knowingly displaying fictitious plates, no current registration and failure to produce evidence of financial responsibility. He was released at the scene.

Police arrested a Coronado resident Wednesday night for an incident involving alcohol last month, reports stated.

Officers went to Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., and spoke with Kristen Nedoba, 18, about a Sept. 30 incident.

Reports state that on Sept. 30, officers saw Nedoba vomit, smelling strongly of alcohol. She admitted to drinking beer at that time.

When Nedoba spoke with police Wednesday, she said she had not drank alcohol since that night.

Police cited and released Nedoba for minor in possession of alcohol.

Officers assisted Tucson police Thursday morning with traffic control at a fatal accident near North Park Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard, reports stated.

A car and a motorcycle collided at 1:30 a.m. and when Tucson police responded to the scene, officers requested more assistance with shutting down the intersection.

UAPD gave assistance by directing traffic from East Speedway Boulevard onto southbound North Tyndall Avenue.

Police had to cone off other areas because cars were attempting to enter closed-off locations.

More university officers came to the scene and helped conduct the investigation.

Units stayed on scene until the accident was cleared from the intersection.

Police arrested a Tucson man Thursday morning for multiple outstanding warrants after he was found sleeping in a campus-area, guest house, reports stated.

The man, who identified himself as Gregory Schweickert, 51, of the 2000 block of North Stone Avenue, with an Arizona driver license, said he had stayed in the East Helen Street house for two days.

Police took the man into custody after a background check showed he had three outstanding trespassing warrants from the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

After placing him in the patrol car, officers went back to the guest house to retrieve the man's possessions.

Police discovered a small bag possibly containing marijuana near Schweickert's belongings, reports stated.

He also had rolling papers in his possession, reports stated.

When officers asked who the bag belonged to, he said "not me." Schweickert then said he was done answering officers' questions.

He was taken to Pima County Jail where he was refused by pre-trial services and booked for the three warrants and a charge of unlawful possession of marijuana.
