A woman was taken to University Medical Center late Friday night after drinking at a party at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., reports stated.

The woman was lying on the ground in the parking lot and bleeding from her mouth when police arrived. An officer checked inside the woman's mouth to make sure her breathing was not obstructed and noticed that she was bleeding from a cut on her tongue, reports stated.

The woman was visiting from Phoenix with another friend and had been drinking at an unknown residence hall earlier in the night before attending the party.

A member of the fraternity told the friend that the woman was ill, and when they tried to put her in the car, she fell on her face and bit her tongue, reports stated.

The friend told police that the woman had seven to 10 beers. He also said that she had not used any drugs that night and that she did not have a drug or alcohol abuse history, reports stated.

Police called the woman's mother to obtain her personal information and told her that her daughter had been taken to UMC.

The mother said she was going to drive down from Glendale to pick her up.

The woman was admitted to UMC for extreme intoxication and was in stable condition when the officer left, reports stated.

An employee was threatened by another man when he told him not to take all of the wooden pallets by the loading dock of the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University Blvd., at 12:30 p.m. on Sept. 1, reports stated.

The man was a private vendor who picks up the wooden pallets at no cost. The employee told the man not to take all of the pallets because others may need them, reports stated.

The man became angry and yelled at the employee in Spanish, "If you cut me off, I'll cut you up with a knife," reports stated.

The man walked away from the confrontation, but told the man that as an employee, he had the authority to tell him not to take the pallets, reports stated.

The employee did not see a knife.

The employee told the police that he was uncomfortable with the man being at his work and would pursue a restraining order against him. The employee notified his immediate supervisor and the operations manager of the incident, reports stated.

The officer told the employee to get more information about the man including his last name, vehicle license number or employment information from witnesses, reports stated.

A student was arrested for selling alcohol out of his backpack in front of Arizona-Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., just after midnight on Friday, reports stated.

Police approached the man with the backpack after he matched the description from another student.

Police asked to look in the student's backpack. At first he resisted, but then he allowed police to search him.

Officers found a bottle of Captain Morgan spiced rum and a bottle of Stolichnaya vodka in the student's bag, reports stated.

Both of the bottles were full and were poured out at the scene. The student was under 21 and was arrested for minor in possession, reports stated.

Four decorative chairs were stolen from a study room in La Aldea Residence Hall, 825 E. Fifth St., between 6 p.m. Thursday and 11 a.m. Friday, reports stated.

The property manager told police that the door to the study room is always locked, but residents can check out a key from the manager, reports stated.

The property manager said she had no idea who might have taken the chairs.

A photo of the chairs was placed into evidence.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

Someone stole tools from a work truck parked near the garage and shop entrance at the UA Agricultural Center, 4101 N. Campbell Ave., sometime during the night of Sept. 1, reports stated.

An employee noticed that the toolboxes in his truck were open and many tools had been stolen, reports stated.

Another employee found a backpack and tools on the ground near a fence that borders Campbell Avenue on the east side of the facility, reports stated.

Police opened the backpack and found two DeWalt grinders that the employee said were his. The rest of the tools did not belong to either employee.

When the employees inspected the area around the truck, they found what appeared to be human feces on the ground by the driver's side door, reports stated.

The gates to the facility are locked every night, but no one was sure what time they had been locked that evening, reports stated.

Police found what appeared to be bike tracks leading west from the gate past the east fence.

The property was returned to the employee, and the backpack and its contents were placed into evidence.
