A construction worker was injured after a ramp on his flatbed truck slipped and struck him on the head at the Highland Commons construction site, 1224 E. Lowell St., Monday, reports stated.

The ramp knocked him to the ground, injuring his hip and creating a large gash on his head that bled heavily, but did not cause him to lose consciousness, reports stated.

Tucson Fire crews took the man to the University Medical Center to receive treatment for his injuries.

A hotdog cart was vandalized by unknown subjects Monday, between the Psychology and Modern Languages buildings on East University Boulevard, reports stated.

A UA employee discovered the damaged cart when she arrived to work in the morning. It had been pushed into the middle of the sidewalk, one of the cabinets had been pried open and its contents were strewn over the ground, reports stated.

One bottle of mustard had been squirted all over the cart, reports stated.

The employee told police that nothing was missing from the cart and that there was no permanent damage, reports stated.

A UA employee reported an argument between another employee and a student Monday in the Koffler building, 1340 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

The employee told police that the student confronted the co-worker about a grade he received on a test. The student, who was black, said that the teacher had a racial bias, reports stated.

The student did not threaten the employee, but the employee reported the incident because he had seen a report of a similar confrontation between the student and another professor in the Wildcat. The employee wanted to document the incident, reports stated.

A UA student said he felt threatened after he had an argument with another student in Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, 1418 E. Fourth St., Monday, reports stated.

The student said he was having a meeting in the residence hall with several students when another student started talking loudly. The student who made the report said that he told the loud student to "shut the hell up," and then walked out of the room, reports stated.

Later in the evening, the loud student came out of his room with a red plastic cup. The reporting student asked if he could smell the cup's contents, but the loud student threw the cup at him. The loud student then proceeded to take off his coat, saying, "You want to do this? You want to throw down?" reports stated.

The loud student went to the reporting student's room 30 minutes later, but he said he did not want to deal with him, reports stated.

A Tucson man was arrested on charges of narcotics possession after a routine traffic stop on Sixth Street and Park Avenue, Monday, reports stated.

The man was stopped for speeding, but when the officer ran his license, the check revealed that it had been suspended. The officer then noticed the scent of marijuana coming from the vehicle, reports stated.

After searching the vehicle, with the man's consent, police discovered a steel pipe with residue in it that smelled like burnt marijuana. The police also found a partial marijuana cigarette in the man's wallet, in addition to a plastic bottle containing a green leafy substance, reports stated.

The man was cited on charges of possessing marijuana, possessing drug paraphernalia and driving on a suspended license, reports stated.

He was taken to the Juvenile Detention Center.
