Police do not know who exposed his erect penis to a male UA student Monday while inside a campus bathroom, reports stated.

The student told police he was inside a stall at 10:30 a.m. at the UA Main Library, 1510 E. University Blvd., when another man entered the stall next to him. The unknown man bent down and stuck his penis underneath the divider, reports stated.

"What are you doing?" the student said before the man exited the stall and left the bathroom, reports stated.

Police arrested a UA student Tuesday after his resident assistant smelled burnt marijuana coming through the vents of the residence hall, reports stated.

The RA for Palm Shadows Apartments, 1815 E. Speedway Blvd., was in her kitchen when she smelled the odor. She traced the smell back to the room of a 20-year-old resident, reports stated.

When officers approached the room, they could smell the odor coming through an exterior vent. The RA told police the student was home, but he refused to open the door and speak with the officers, reports stated.

Dag, the UAPD police dog, smelled the exterior of the room and confirmed the officers' observations that there was an odor coming from the vent, reports stated.

Police then spoke with the hall director, who allowed them to enter the room with an extra key. When officers and the RA opened the door, they saw the resident standing a few feet away and noticed the odor of burnt marijuana, reports stated.

The resident denied having any marijuana contraband in the room, but later told police that he hid his water bong in his dirty laundry bag, reports stated.

Officers searched the bag and found the bong and a pill container that had a few flakes of marijuana in it, reports stated.

The student told police that he bought the bong in a town near Las Vegas. The student was cited and released on suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia, reports stated.

The bong and pill container were taken to UAPD and placed into evidence.
