A student was arrested for underage drinking around 1 a.m. Saturday after an officer saw him stumbling at East Fourth Street and North Vine Avenue, reports stated.

The officer saw the man stumbling southbound on Cherry Avenue and then westbound on Fourth Street before urinating in public, reports stated.

The officer that responded found two cans and one bottle of beer on the man. The man admitted that he had been drinking that night, reports stated.

The student was cited and released for minor in possession and minor in consumption of alcohol.

A man was arrested on assault charges after he hit another man outside of the UA football game near East Sixth Street and North National Championship Drive Saturday morning, reports stated.

The men were selling tickets to the game. One of the men said that every time he would try to sell a ticket, the other man would yell, "tickets." He told the other man to stop and the other man punched him in the face, reports stated.

Police spoke to the second man, and he said the first man, "came up to me and was giving me shit," and would not answer any more questions.

When asked whether he hit the man, he said "What would you do if someone was giving you shit?" reports stated.

The first man said he would press charges and the other man was cited and released.

The support bracket of a rain gutter broke and hit a man in the head at the UA football game, 540 N. Vine Ave., Saturday afternoon, reports stated.

When police arrived, they saw a significant amount of blood coming from the back of the man's head and a little from his left arm, reports stated.

Trainers from the Wisconsin team provided gauze and kept pressure on the man's cuts until medical personnel arrived.

The man was transported to Tucson Medical Center and received several staples in his head to treat the wound. He was ok and released to his father, reports stated.

The bracket on the gutter broke due to mass amounts of water from the storm and the area was roped off. Facilities Management removed the rest of the gutter.

Someone stole a student's Web registration ID to access the student's account and drop all of the student's classes at 4:07 p.m. on Friday, reports stated.

The student said she suspected a former UA student of the act.

She said that he was a past friend of hers and that he had seen her log into WebReg several times before, but she was unsure if he knew her password.
