Trespassing in Arizona Stadium

UA student told police Saturday night that being asked to leave the football game after running onto the field was "bullshit," reports stated.

During the game police saw the 22-year-old jump over a wall inside Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., and run onto the field.

When officers spoke to him they noticed he had bloodshot eyes and smelled like alcohol. Throughout the conversation the student kept interrupting police, reports stated.

Officers gave him the opportunity to return to his seat but when he continued to act disorderly he was escorted to the stadium's exit and ejected.

The man was told that if he returned he would be arrested for trespassing.

Later in the game officers saw the man near his original seat.

He was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail on suspicion of trespassing in the third degree.


Assault

Two men who were on campus trying to register students to vote got into a fight while inside a campus eatery Friday, reports stated.

One of the men told police he works for JSM, a company that pays him to register people to vote. He said that he took a lunch break at 1:20 p.m. when he went into the Student Union Memorial Center, 1501 E. University Blvd.

While in the food court, the JSM employee saw that another man registering students to vote was taking up an entire table.

The man, who is not employed by the university, told the other voter registrar that he couldn't take up an entire table.

"Get out of my face," the other man retorted.

The JSM employee left and called the student union manager about the incident.

He then returned to the other registrar's table and said that he reported the incident.

"Get out of my face," the other man said before punching the JSM employee on the right side of the face.

The JSM employee then chased the other man until he lost sight of him at the Economics building, 1303 E. University Blvd.

While speaking with police, the employee refused to give officers the phone number and address of the company he worked for because he had to get back to work, reports stated.

The employee did tell police that he wants to press charges if the man is found.


Minors in possession

Three students were placed into the diversion program Friday night after police saw them stumbling on campus, reports stated.

Police stopped the group near the Education building, 1430 E. Second St.

They noticed that two of the women were stumbling and one man was using a wall to keep balance, reports stated.

The three students, all under 21 years old, had an odor of alcohol coming from them.

"This is just the way I walk," one student said after denying stumbling, reports stated.

The three students admitted to drinking alcohol.

One female student repeatedly gave police a fake phone number. One of the fake numbers she gave had 12 digits, reports stated.

The three students were placed into the diversion program on suspicion of being a minor in possession of alcohol, reports stated.


Trespassing

A UA sorority member went outside to smoke a cigarette early Friday morning when she saw a shirtless man asleep on the patio, reports stated.

The house mother told police that the man was asleep on the gated and locked patio of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority, 1443 E. First St.

Officers arrived just after 1 a.m. and awoke the man.

Police searched the man and noticed that he had several needles in his pockets and had recently received intravenous injections. Some of the needles had a dark residue on them.

The house mother told police that she wanted to press charges.

He was arrested and taken to Pima County Jail on suspicion of possessing drug paraphernalia and trespassing in the first degree, reports stated.
