A Tucson woman riding her bicycle was the victim of a hit-and-run accident that occurred at approximately 3 p.m. last Thursday on the corner of East Fifth Street and North Euclid Avenue, reports stated.
A UA officer met the victim at her apartment the next day to discuss the hit-and-run.
She said she had been traveling eastbound on East Fifth Street when she turned left onto North Euclid Avenue. The truck, described as white with oversized tires, was coming westbound on East Fifth Street and was turning left onto North Euclid Avenue when it hit her and left the scene, reports stated.
The woman was not hurt.
Paint chips from the white truck were removed from the bicycle and taken into evidence, reports stated.
The woman described the driver of the vehicle as a white or Hispanic male with a shaved head, dark hair and glasses.
A University of Arizona Police Department officer responded to a fight breaking out between three women at 502 N. Campbell Ave. last Friday morning, reports stated.
The officer met the victim of the attack at a Unocal 76 Station. The victim said the two women struck her when they were exiting a SunTran bus, reports stated.
The two suspects were neighbors of the victim.
The fight took place after the three women had been on the bus and one of the suspects accused the victim of "talking crap" about her while she was in prison. As they stepped off the bus, one of the suspects struck the victim in the back and all three women began fighting. An attendant at the gas station came running out and saw all three women lying on the ground, reports stated.
When the two suspects saw the attendant they fled westbound on East Sixth Street. Officers searched the area, but did not find anyone, reports stated.
The victim had no apparent injuries and declined medical assistance, but wants to press charges if the suspects are found, reports stated.
A Tucson man was cited for disorderly conduct after being disruptive in the UA Main Library on Saturday, reports stated.
A UA officer responded to the call after receiving a report from a woman at the library that an unknown male approached her while she was studying.
The man spoke to her, and when she did not respond he called her "a bitch and a cunt," reports stated.
The officer found a man in the Integrated Learning Center who was positively identified by the woman, reports stated.
The man was cited and advised not to return.
Three UA students were charged with violating drug laws after they were discovered by two UA police officers in a residence at 1440 E. Fifth St. at approximately 2 a.m. Sunday.
The officers were responding to a report of a burning marijuana odor coming from one of the rooms. When the officers arrived at the scene, they reported smelling a strong odor of marijuana down the hallway, coming from the room.
As the officer got closer to the room, two males and one female exited. One of the males was spraying scented Lysol on him as he exited. The door to the room was open and as the officer approached it, he saw a male sitting on a bed hiding a green plastic container under a blanket, reports stated.
All of the subjects were taken downstairs. Officers described them as having bloodshot eyes, raised taste buds, and tongues with a greenish hue, reports stated.
One of the males admitted to smoking the marijuana and said, "I want to own up to my mistake." He said they only smoked for five minutes, about 30 minutes prior, and that there was very little marijuana left, reports stated.
After a search of the room, the officers discovered a plastic bottle under a blanket filled with water and with a pipe inserted into it. When the officer asked one of the males what the device was used for he said, "to smoke marijuana," reports stated.
The man then said the female who had been with them when the officers had arrived had just gotten there and did not smoke anything. The three students were cited and released.
Police responded to reports of vandalism at a residence at 1637 East Mabel Street, reports stated.
The residence is owned by the UA and was unoccupied and fenced off at the time.
A resident across the street called the police after he heard screaming, yelling and glass breaking while he was sleeping, reports stated.
A UA officer observed extensive window damage caused by rocks and bricks.
There are no suspects, but photos were taken of the scene and general maintenance was called to clean up the scene, reports stated.
