A UA student was cited and released on minor in possession charges after he forgot the date of birth on his fake driver's license on Sept. 13, reports stated.

A UAPD officer saw the student leaving the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity party, 1449 N. Cherry Ave. carrying a can of beer, reports stated.

The officer asked for his identification and the man produced a California driver's license. Holding the student's ID, the officer asked the student how old he was. The student responded "23," reports stated.

The officer asked again and the student replied "22." The officer noticed that the picture on the ID did not match the student. He eventually gave the officer his real ID and was cited for a minor in possession charge, reports stated.

The student was cited and released at the scene. The officer took the fake driver's license into evidence, reports stated.

Two UA students and a friend reported that someone burglarized their unlocked apartment on Sept. 13, reports stated.

The theft occurred between 1 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. at Sky View Apartments, 1050 E. Eighth St. One student and her guest went to bed and when they awoke later that morning, they noticed that somebody had taken items from their living room, reports stated.

They said they saw a chest in the living room that was unlocked, which they thought was odd because it is always locked. They also noticed that the television set was unplugged, reports stated.

The burglar stole 150 CDs, six DVDs and $347 in cash from a wallet that was sitting on the coffee table. The items were estimated to be worth $1,997.

The student also reported that an "All American Rejects" poster was stolen from a wall along with a tapestry, report stated.

The student had left the door unlocked because her roommates did not have their keys.

No prints were taken because the students had touched the area where the items were stolen from, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses at this time, reports stated.

A bike patrol officer spotted a student crossing Ring Road carrying a beer while leaving the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity party, 1420 E. Vine Ave., on Sept. 13, reports stated.

When the officer approached, the student put the beer in his pants pocket.

The officer asked for his identification, and the student gave him a fake California license, reports stated.

The officer noticed that the picture on the license did not match the student and that he was not 6 feet tall, like it said on the license, reports stated.

The student said a person at the party had given it to him. After signing the citation, the student asked for the fake ID back. The officer said "no."

The fake ID was placed into evidence and the student was cited for a minor in possession charge, reports stated.

A UA student was arrested after he threatened a security guard on Sept. 13, at the UA football game, reports stated.

A UAPD officer was asked for assistance at Arizona Stadium, 525 N. National Championship Dr., when a security guard said a man sitting in the student section was threatening him. The student was standing in an aisle and refused to move, reports stated.

The student told the security guard that he was going to "kick his fucking ass," after the security guard repeatedly asked him to move. The UAPD officer told the student to leave because he was ejected for threats, reports stated.

The student said "no" and tensed up his body. The student eventually cooperated and was taken to UAPD. He said that he was not taking his medication, reports stated.

The student, who said he was a bouncer from Phoenix, said he has had problems with police in the past. He said, "This happens every time the police always arrest me," reports stated.

He also told the officer, "If I don't take my meds, I could kill somebody," reports stated.

The student refused to sign the citation and was transported to University Medical Center for medical and mental observation, reports stated.

The student was cited with minor in possession of alcohol, disorderly conduct and threats and intimidation charges.
