A UA student was arrested for trespassing after he was thrown out of the stands at Saturday's football game at Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., reports stated.

The student was first seen by police exiting a restroom with what the student said was a "Pepsi and Jack Daniel's." A UAPD officer asked the student to dump out the beverage and leave the stadium, reports stated.

The officer also told the student not to return, or he would be arrested for trespassing.

The student was seen 20 minutes later in the same location he was in earlier. Police said his speech was slurred and he had red, watery eyes. A silver flask was also found in his possession, reports stated.

The student was arrested for trespassing and taken to Pima County Jail. The flask was kept for safekeeping.

A student was arrested for false reporting after a UAPD officer witnessed him push the call button on a blue light emergency phone Saturday, reports stated.

The student was seen walking on East Second Street. An officer in the area saw him push the call button on the emergency phone and walk away, reports stated.

When the officer stopped the student, he said that he did not know it was an emergency phone. The telephone terminal was lit by blue lights and had the word "emergency" written on both the side and the top panels, reports stated.

The student was cited and released at the scene, reports stated.

A former resident of the Arizona-Senora Residence Hall was arrested Thursday on a minor in possession charge after he was caught smelling of alcohol in the courtyard of the hall, reports stated.

The student had been kicked out of the residence hall in early September after he was caught with marijuana in his room. A resident assistant called UAPD after he saw the same student in the courtyard of the residence hall, reports stated.

The student said he was visiting friends in the dorm. When officers arrived, they smelled alcohol on his breath, reports stated.

The student admitted to drinking and was arrested, reports stated.

A man was arrested Friday after he was caught trying to load marijuana into his pipe while driving on East Speedway Boulevard, reports stated.

The responding officer was driving 35 mph when a truck ¸ clocked at 45 mph ¸ passed him. The truck was also swerving, touching both sides of the lane, reports stated.

The officer pulled the truck over and spoke to the driver. As the driver was speaking, the officer noticed something in the driver's shirt pocket. When he asked the driver what it was, he said it was cigarette ashes, reports stated.

The officer pointed out to the driver that there was a plant stem with seeds in his pocket. The driver said he did not know what it was, reports stated.

The officer then searched the driver and found a bag of a green leafy substance in his pants pocket. The driver admitted to trying to load his pipe with marijuana while driving, reports stated.

The man was arrested for possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, speeding and failure to drive within one lane, reports stated.

A student called UAPD after she received harassing phone calls from another student on Friday, reports stated.

The student said she received a call from a man who told her to meet him in front of the Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St.

The student declined the invitation, and the man hung up the phone, reports stated.

The student then said she heard the phone ring in her neighbor's room. Nobody picked up the phone, but the student could hear that a message had been left, reports stated.

Police later listened to the message and it said, "Your friends better stop talking shit, or they'll get their asses kicked." Neither student recognized the voice on the recording, reports stated.

Police have traced the call and will question the suspect about it.

Members of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, 1745 E. Second St., called police after their chapter house was burglarized on Friday, reports stated.

The president of the fraternity suspected the theft was made by a former member. The former member was evicted from the fraternity after he fought with other members. The president also named the evicted member's friend as a possible suspect, reports stated.

Both the evicted member and his friend knew the combination for the lock on the front door of the chapter house. Police plan to follow up with the men, reports stated.
