Police Beat

A student was arrested Friday night for being a minor in possession of alcohol, criminal trespassing and providing false information to law enforcement after he became aggressive with officers, repeatedly yelling "fuck you," reports stated.

At around 11 p.m., while assigned to the party patrol detail, two officers were standing outside the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, 1423 E. First St., when they heard someone at the front door scream, "Hey guys, break it up."

As the officers approached the area, a man, later identified as David Weed, 18, from the 800 block of East First Street, walked from a crowd toward the officers. As he approached police, a member of the fraternity informed the officers he was asked to leave the house several times before being escorted outside and was no longer welcome at the party, reports stated.

Weed was asked for his identification, and he said, "I do not have any." The officers repeatedly asked Weed for his identification, but he refused to provide one.

He then told the officers he was a student at Arizona State University. He was asked one more time for his identification or his name and he replied, "Fuck you." He continued to yell "Fuck you" every time he was asked a question, and he became aggressive with his posture and his tone of voice, reports stated.

An officer asked him to settle down when Weed said, "fuck you." He then walked towards the officers, clenching his fists, and screamed "fuck you." The two officers then subdued Weed by grabbing both his arms and taking him to the ground where he was handcuffed and searched, reports stated. During the search, officers found a California identification that gave his name, and officers were notified he was a University of Arizona student.

Officers spoke to a resident of the fraternity, who said Weed was getting out of control at the party and, after being asked to leave several times, was escorted from the house. While being escorted outside, Weed threw two beer cans, one of which hit the forehead of the fraternity member, causing a bruise. The fraternity member did not wish to press charges and refused medical attention, reports stated.

Another fraternity member told officers he wished to press charges against Weed for criminal trespassing.

Weed was taken to Pima County Jail and released, reports stated.

Police were unable to locate a man who was seen smoking from a pipe in a campus parking lot Saturday, reports stated.

At 1 p.m., a security officer saw an unknown man smoking in the parking lot at 520 N. Euclid Ave. The man saw the officer and ran southbound from the lot.

Upon arriving at the scene, police found a 5-inch multicolored pipe underneath the vehicle next to where the man was smoking. Police were unable to locate the man, reports stated.

A short time later, police observed a man looking around the vehicle where the pipe was found. Officers made contact with the man, who said a friend asked him to get the pipe for him. The security officer met with police, and the man notified police that he was not the same person who had been smoking earlier.

The man would not tell police the name of his friend. He was then allowed to leave.

The pipe was placed into evidence. There are no suspects at this time, reports stated.

A woman was warned for trespassing Friday after she refused to leave a campus building until she found out why an employee was mad at her, reports stated.

At 7 p.m., officers met with an employee who had contacted police in reference to a woman who did not have any reason to be in a laboratory at the College of Pharmacy, 1703 E. Mabel St.

Upon arrival, police contacted the woman, who said she did not have the paperwork to be in the lab but that she was friends with the reporting employee and that he was mad at her. She said she did not want to leave until she found out why he was mad at her, reports stated.

The employee said he was not mad at her and that he just wanted her to leave.

The woman was warned for trespassing and escorted from the property, reports stated.
