Police red-tagged a house and cited a student for underage drinking Friday night after police got a report about a loud party on the 1400 block of East Lester Street, reports stated.

When police arrived they noticed that the student was having a loud party with 30 to 35 people there.

Police found a keg in the house and the student admitted to being under 21.

The crowd was dispersed and the keg was dumped out, reports stated.

Someone stole a $700 steel tube from Highland Avenue Parking Garage, 1240 N. Highland Ave., sometime between Sept. 6 and Saturday, reports stated.

When police arrived a construction worker said he had placed the tube on the top level of the garage and wrote "highland" on it.

The worker said he last saw the tube around 8 a.m. Sept. 6 and noticed it was missing around 5 a.m. Saturday.

The worker said the tube weighs between 300 and 400 pounds.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A white mountain bike was found around 10 a.m. Saturday at the Marley building, 1145 E. Fourth St., reports stated.

When police arrived the bike was in the walkway, and no one around had any information on the bike.

The bike was placed into police property for safekeeping, reports stated.

A student was warned for having unruly tailgaters Saturday afternoon while he was on the McKale Lawn, North Campbell Avenue and East University Boulevard, reports stated.

Police arrived around 5 p.m. and told the student, who had a permit for the spot, that he would have to control the crowd or the party would be shut down.

The student seemed extremely drunk and was not cooperative.

When police were telling the students about the rules the student repeatedly interrupted and did not seem to be listening, reports stated.

The student was able to quiet down the crowd and police asked the student for his identification.

The student said he knew his rights and said he didn't want the police to use anything against him.

Police told the student that if they did not see his identification he would be reported to the Dean of Students Office for code of conduct violations.

The student again refused to let police see his ID and walked away, reports stated.

A 19-year-old man was cited for trespassing Saturday after refusing to leave Pinal Residence Hall, 1511 E. Sixth St., reports stated.

When police arrived a UA employee said the man had been asked to stay away from the dorm on previous occasions. He said they wanted to press charges on the man.

When police asked the man about visiting the dorm, he changed his story several times and acted like he didn't understand.

The man was released and told not to come back to the residence hall, reports stated.

A man was electrocuted while cleaning a hot dog warmer at the football game Saturday at Arizona Stadium, 540 E. Vine Ave., reports stated.

When police arrived around 10:30 p.m. medics were treating the man. The man's arms and chest were shaking.

The man had no visible injuries and was taken to University Medical Center for observation.

Witnesses said the man had yelled and then fell to the floor.

The man's manager said the man had been using too much water to clean the machine. The manager said she would have the machine serviced, reports stated.

A student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for underage drinking Saturday night in front of La Paz Residence Hall, 602 N. Highland Ave., after he accused two other students of pushing him at the football game, reports stated.

Police were flagged down by the two students around 11 p.m. The students said the other student had accused them of pushing him and had tried to start a fight.

The two students said they had not even been to the football game.

The student said he had confronted the two students because they looked familiar and he wanted to find out who had pushed him, reports stated.

The student smelled like alcohol. When police asked if he had been drinking he said he had a couple of beers.

The two students said they did not want to press charges, but said they wanted an apology.

The student apologized to them and was released, reports stated.
