Police Beat

A Tucson woman threatened a police officer Dec.22 after being arrested for drunken driving, reports stated.

Officers saw the woman's car hit lane dividers on East Grant Road and North Fremont Avenue and make a wide turn from East Grant Road to North First Avenue. Police pulled the vehicle over at North First Avenue and East Alturas Street, reports stated.

While speaking with the 24-year-old driver, Ann Kouri, officers noticed an odor of intoxicants on the woman's breath. Kouri, of the 8900 block of North Joanna Avenue, stepped out of the car and at officers' request removed the candy that was in her mouth.

She was administered sobriety tests and told police that she had drunk two beers. Kouri was taken to the University of Arizona Police Department, where she was given a breath analysis test. Kouri had a blood alcohol content of .189, more than double Arizona's legal limit of .08, reports stated.

She was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of .08 and driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content of more than .15, reports stated.

After she was told she was under arrest, police noticed the woman was experiencing mood swings. Kouri was laughing and then immediately crying. She would blame herself and then blame the arresting officer, reports stated.

Kouri told police she was going home and was not coming back because of the DUI laws. She also told police she worked at a bagel shop and was hoping to get the chance to make the arresting officer's food in the back of the store, causing him to be in a "world of hurt," reports stated.

Kouri was released from UAPD when a friend came to pick her up.

A UA student's Sony PlayStation was stolen from a campus fraternity house on Dec. 25, reports stated.

The Pi Kappa Phi fraternity member was upstairs when he heard somebody walking on the ground floor of the house. The student went downstairs and approached a room where he believed the noise was coming from. The room had no doorknob, so the student looked through the hole and saw a man in the room.

The student ran upstairs and grabbed a golf club. When he returned to the room, the man was gone. Police searched the area but were unable to find anybody matching the description of the suspected burglar, reports stated.

When the resident of the downstairs room returned, he called police to report his PlayStation missing. He also told officers that the room was not locked because the doorknob was missing and that he does not want to prosecute if the suspect is caught.

An $800 monitor was stolen from a campus building during the winter break, reports stated.

A UA employee last saw the monitor Dec. 21 when he locked the room at the Steward Observatory, 933 N. Cherry Ave. When the employee returned Jan. 2, he noticed the monitor was missing. He told police that the room was still locked, and he did not know how many people have keys to the room, reports stated.

Police told him to call back when he found the serial number to the stolen equipment. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

Police arrested a man Friday who was asleep near a campus building, reports stated.

Officers awoke Kevin Levels, 39, of the 1100 block of East 26th Street, after they found him sleeping in the walkway of the University Medical Center Library, 1501 N. Campbell Ave.

Police performed a background check on Levels and learned that he had two warrants for driving under the influence of alcohol, reports stated.

He was taken and booked into Pima County Jail. Levels' items were taken into safekeeping and his perishable items were thrown out, reports stated.

Ten windows were damaged over the winter break at two UA residence halls, reports stated.

A UA maintenance employee called police Friday after he noticed that two windows from the Coronado Residence hall, 822 E. Fifth St., and eight windows from the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., had been damaged.

All of the windows had been scratched and were on the ground floor. The windows were last seen intact Wednesday, reports stated.

There are no suspects or witnesses.
