The man rode off on the bike when he saw the student looking at him. He was wearing a blue shirt and dark pants and had a dark mustache.

He also was wearing a red and black backpack and was described as being between 30 and 40 years old, reports stated.

The scooter has stickers "all over it" and is missing the battery door from the engine. Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

Two students were cited for racing after police saw them driving quickly on North Sixth Avenue on Monday evening, reports stated.

A UAPD officer was driving toward the East Sixth Street and North Highland Avenue intersection when he saw two cars stopped side by side at a red light take off at a high rate of speed.

The two students said they were roommates and admitted to racing, reports stated.

A man was charged with DUI after police saw a passenger in the bed of his truck drinking a beer Saturday night, reports stated.

A police officer was driving on East Speedway Boulevard at 4:32 p.m., when he saw a man in the bed of a tan pick-up truck drinking from what looked like a bottle in a brown paper bag. He also saw the passenger in the front seat drinking from a can, reports stated.

When he turned on his sirens and emergency lights, the driver of the truck waved to him. The driver continued to drive down Speedway, eventually stopping at a gas station, reports stated.

The officer asked the driver if he had been drinking and the man said, "Not today." As he was getting out of the truck, the driver used the door to hold himself up. The officer smelled alcohol on his breath, reports stated.

After a field sobriety test, the driver was taken back to UAPD and given a breathalyzer test. After blowing a .245, the man was cited for extreme DUI, reports stated.

The passengers in the truck were released at the scene and charged with open container violations after police found that they were drinking from 24-ounce cans of Milwaukee's Best, reports stated.
