A man was arrested after a witness saw him climb over the fence of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority house Aug. 30 at 1:19 a.m., reports stated.

UAPD responded to a call from an employee of 7-Eleven, 1750 E. Speedway Blvd. and found a man lying in the backyard shrubs of the sorority house. The man had taken off his boots and was asleep, reports stated.

The officer entered the backyard and tapped the man on the foot. Awoken by the officer, the man said "stop giving me a hard time, I'm just trying to sleep," reports stated.

The officer asked the man to leave again threatening to take him to jail. The man responded by saying, "fuck you man, take me to jail then," reports stated.

The officer handcuffed the man and asked the residents of the sorority house if they wanted him to take the man away. They said yes and the man was booked in jail on disorderly conduct and trespassing violations, reports stated.

A female student was cited for a minor in possession charge after a resident advisor saw her stumbling in a hallway of Graham/Greenlee Residence Hall, 610 N. Highland Ave., on Aug. 30 at 1:48 a.m., reports stated.

When UAPD responded, they were led to the student lying on the floor of her room. Officers said she had red, watery eyes and a strong odor of liquor on her breath, reports stated.

Once revived, the student said that she had taken her normal dosage of Prozac and eight tablets of Advil after drinking two pitchers of beer. When questioned further, the student said she may have drunk "jungle juice," and said that she had consumed the alcohol at a place "far way," reports stated.

The Tucson Fire Department was called for assistance. The student was transported to University Medical Center for aid. Her parents were called later in the evening, reports stated.

A man was referred to the county attorney's office after a UAPD officer witnessed him place a lit cigarette into the mouth of a child stricken with cerebral palsy on Aug. 30 at 9:10 p.m., reports stated.

The man was first seen by a Southwest Ambulance Service employee at the Arizona Stadium, 525 N. National Championship Dr., placing the lit cigarette into the boy's mouth. The employee notified a UAPD officer who later saw the man repeat his actions, reports stated.

After questioning the man, it was determined that the boy was the man's nephew. The boy was unable to inhale through his mouth, and the man did not think it was a big deal.

The man said he was acting with poor judgment and said it was the first time he had done this. The boy's father was found nearby and notified of the uncle's actions.

Police did not file a report, but warned the man not to repeat his actions.
