A student was cited for drinking early Sunday morning after police saw him drinking from a keg cup, reports stated.

A UAPD officer was on North Martin Avenue approaching East First Street when he saw four males walking on a sidewalk. One of them, a 19-year-old student, was seen with a red plastic cup in his hand, reports stated.

When the student saw the officer, he pitched the cup into the street, spilling its liquid contents. The liquid on the ground smelled like beer, and the cup was cool to the touch. It also smelled of beer, reports stated.

When officers stopped the student for littering, they noticed he had bloodshot eyes. He then told them he had been drinking, reports stated.

The student was also cited for littering, reports stated.

He was released at the scene.

A student's cologne, shot glasses and CD case were stolen from his dorm room in Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., Sunday morning, reports stated.

The student told police that between 9 p.m. Saturday and 4 a.m. Sunday someone stole his $175 bottle of cologne, some shot glasses that were worth $10, and a CD case containing six burned CDs worth $20, reports stated. Also stolen was a fraternity pin that had no monetary value.

The student told police his door was locked, but the window was open about 10 inches and the screen had been removed, reports stated.

The student's roommate was in Phoenix for the weekend, and the student did not know if any of his belongings had been stolen. The roommate's DVD player and laptop computer were still in the room, although they could have easily been taken, reports stated.

Police were unable to find any fingerprints and have no suspects at this time.

A student's vehicle was damaged while parked at a UA sorority over the weekend, reports stated.

Police responded to the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house, 1435 E. Second St., where the student said that, between 9:30 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday, her 2002 black Jeep Cherokee was damaged, reports stated.

Officers noticed that a dent on the back left corner of the vehicle had a paint scuff around it. They also found small chips of glass on the roof and around the rear window, reports stated.

Police were unable to determine what caused the damage, and they do not have any suspects.

A UA student was identified Sunday night as the man who shot a Tucson man with a paintball gun.

The man told police that he was in an alley behind a sorority house when he saw a silver or gold colored sedan occupied by up to five males driving down the alley from North Martin Avenue. The sedan then made a U-turn going east toward North Martin Avenue, reports stated.

Then a male with a shaved head who was later identified as a UA student was seen leaning out the passenger side of the sedan and shooting something at the Tucson man's 1995 green Nissan pick-up, reports stated.

As the man turned to look at his truck, he was shot in the upper right back by what appeared to be a paint ball bullet, reports stated.

The man found that the bullet made a hole in his shirt with a large green splatter. The man also saw a half dollar- sized welt begin to form. The man later saw that the bullet had broken skin. The green paint also hit the hood of his pickup, reports stated.

The man then saw the sedan turn southbound onto North Martin Avenue. He was not able to get a license plate number but told police he could identify the sedan if he saw it again.

The man denied medical treatment but told police he wanted to press charges if the suspect was found. Pictures were taken of his injury, reports stated.

A student later told police he was the suspect who shot the paint ball gun. His story placed him at the scene at the same time the incident occurred.

No further information was available.

Police found part of the gate damaged ÷which they believed had been cut ÷ near the Scoreboard CafŽ, reports stated.

An officer called stadium management, who said a work order would be placed to fix the damage, reports stated.
