Minor in possession

Eleven UA students were cited for underage drinking Saturday night at a campus residence hall, university police reports stated.

Officers were at the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., for an unrelated disturbance when a resident assistant told police that there was an odor of alcohol coming from a fourth-floor room.

Police also noticed an odor coming from the room and spoke with a male student who walked out of the room.

While speaking with the student, officers noticed two other students step out of the room. The officer noticed that one man held the door open with a beer in his hand, reports stated.

Police looked into the room and saw eight other students and some full and empty beer cans.

Police spoke to the eleven students who all admitted to drinking beer.

The beer was photographed and dumped out.

The 11 students were cited and released for being minors in possession of alcohol, reports stated.

Theft from automobile

A UA student's car was broken into while parked at a campus parking lot Sunday, reports stated.

The student told police he locked his car at about 3 a.m. in a parking lot located on 1845 E. McKale Dr., reports stated.

When he returned to his car that afternoon he noticed that his $400 stereo was missing.

Police believe that someone used a screwdriver to punch through the car's passenger-side keyhole.

Officers were unable to lift any fingerprints from the vehicle. There are no suspects and no witnesses.

Minor in possession

Police cited a UA student early Sunday morning on suspicion of drinking alcohol and giving a false birth date to police.

Police spoke to the woman after they saw her stumble out of a car and argue with some men at East Fourth Street and North Tyndall Avenue, reports stated.

Officers approached the woman to make sure that she was okay, reports stated.

The student, who smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech and red watery eyes and refused to tell police her name, reports stated.

She told police that she was over 21 years old, reports stated.

When police found out that she was 19, she became rude and told officers that she was a UA law student and would sue them. She also asked if they had anything better to do and told them to take her to jail, reports stated.

Police later learned her name and she was cited and released on suspicion of being a minor in consumption of alcohol, reports stated.

Lewd comments

Police told two men and one student Sunday morning to leave campus after they were seen making lewd comments at women, reports stated.

A female student told police that the men were outside of the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., and were heading toward the East Speedway Boulevard tunnel, reports stated.

Officers caught up with the men near North Olive Avenue and East Speedway Boulevard. They told police that they had said "hi" to several women, but denied making any lewd comments, reports stated.

All of the men told police that they had been recently dropped off and were hanging around campus. They said they left the area when they were asked, reports stated.

The female student told officers that she did not want to press charges. The men were asked to leave the area and were warned not to disturb any UA students in the future.


Two men were cited after police saw them jumping from a campus high dive early Sunday morning, reports stated.

Police spoke to the students at 3:40 a.m. after seeing them try to jump over a wall from inside the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center, 1024 E. Enke Dr., reports stated.

Police approached the men and told them the pool was closed, reports stated.
