A man was arrested for having an outstanding warrant after police broke up a fight between him and another man at 1:31 a.m. Sunday in front of Silvermine Subs, 760 N. Tyndall Ave., reports stated.

Police saw the men fighting and pulled their patrol car next to them and yelled at them to stop, reports stated.

The men stopped fighting immediately and police separated them, reports stated.

The man told police he and the other man had been upset at each other for more than a year for something the other man had said to his girlfriend, reports stated.

The man said he was on his way to get food when he walked by the other man, who said he would "take him" any time. He told the other man to go ahead and try, and the other man spit on his face, reports stated.

Police did not see any signs of spit on the man's face, and he told police he had wiped it off immediately and punched the other man in the face, and they started fighting, reports stated.

Police noticed the man's eye was red and puffy, reports stated.

The other man told police he was on his way to deliver subs when he and the man exchanged fighting words, reports stated.

He said the first man said, "You wanna go?" to him and they began fighting, reports stated.

He also said the first man hit him in the mouth, and police saw blood on the man's bottom teeth and on the inside of his bottom lip, reports stated.

Both men refused medical treatment and did not wish to press charges against each other, reports stated.

A records check of the first man showed he had two outstanding warrants, and he was transported to Pima County Jail.

A $4,000 utility cart was stolen from Sancet Stadium, 640 N. National Championship Drive, sometime Saturday evening, reports stated.

An employee told police he rented the cart from an equipment rental company, and his employees had parked it in a closed and secured area at 4:30 p.m., reports stated.

When the employee returned to the area at 7:30 p.m., the cart was gone, reports stated.

The employee said he didn't report the theft immediately because he thought another employee was using it, reports stated.

He said the keys were not in the cart at the time it was stolen, but the employee said the ignition could be activated easily without a key, reports stated.

The employee gave police the rental receipt and police entered it into their attempt-to-locate system, reports stated.

Police searched the football practice field, under the stadium, the UA Mall, and on the streets north of East Sixth Street and the surrounding area with no results, reports stated.

A copy of the report was sent to the rental company, reports stated.

Police have no suspects or witnesses.

A man was arrested for trying to steal two T-shirts from the McKale Sports Shop, 1721 E. Enke Drive, on Saturday, reports stated.

A UofA Bookstore security guard witnessed the man's shoplifting attempt and detained him and told police they wished to press charges, reports stated.

The man's eyes were red, watery and bloodshot, and police could smell alcohol on his breath. He told police he had "drank a few beers at the tailgate," reports stated.

A record check showed the man had an outstanding warrant for an alcohol violation, reports stated.

The man was arrested for shoplifting and advised of the warrant. He was released at the scene and told not to return to the UA, reports stated.

Photos were taken of the stolen items, and they were placed into property and evidence, reports stated.
