A male student was found throwing up in his room at the Apache Santa Cruz Residence Hall, 1420 E. Fifth St., early Sunday morning and sent to UMC after drinking an 18-pack of beer at a party, reports stated.

Two residence assistants told police they were worried about the student. One RA told police, "I saw him entering the room and he said I'm really drunk then I heard a crash or some kind of moving around and what sounded like throwing up."

Police knocked on the door several times and no one answered. The two RAs then let police into the room, reports stated. When police went into the room the student's roommate sat up. When police asked why he had not answered the door the roommate said, "I am a deep sleeper. I must not have heard you."

Police went over to the student and tried to talk to him. The student would wake up for short intervals, mumble, and then pass out again, reports stated.

When the student woke up he tried to put on a T-shirt. While police were talking to the student, the student kept spitting into a trash can by his bed. Police noticed there was vomit in the trash can and on the floor.

Police called the Tucson Fire Department to transport the student to the hospital. While they were waiting for TFD, the student stood up and urinated in the trash can, reports stated.

Police noticed the student was very unsteady and smelled like alcohol. The roommate told police he had been out with the student, but had not seen him drink.

When TFD arrived they asked the student how much he had had to drink. He said, "I tried not to drink more than an 18-pack." The student then said he drank an 18-pack of beer.

The student was taken to UMC and referred to the dean of students, reports stated.

After pulling over a woman on the corner of East First Street and North Fourth Avenue Saturday night, Police forgot to give her back her license, reports stated. Police realized they had the woman's license after she had already left. Police couldn't find the woman's phone number and put the license into safekeeping, reports stated.

Three students, who were originally thought to be smoking marijuana early Sunday morning, were caught drinking in a dorm room at the Coronado Residence Hall, 822 E. Fifth St., reports stated.

Police said they did not smell marijuana in the room. All three students said they had not been smoking marijuana. One of the students told police they had been drinking vodka. Police noticed that all three students had bloodshot eyes and smelled like alcohol, reports stated. Another student admitted to having an Arrowhead water bottle full of vodka in his back pocket.

All three students were referred to the dean of students and registered for the diversion program, reports stated.

Someone vandalized a stall in a men's bathroom at the Student Union Memorial Center, 1303 E. University, sometime between 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, reports stated.

When police arrived a manager showed them the stall. Police saw that "Delta, Delta, Delta sucks dick" was written on the wall with black pen. There was also a drawing of a naked man. The wall was later cleaned by the custodial staff. Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

An underage student was referred to the diversion program for drinking early Sunday morning while in a room at the Navajo Residence Hall, 1557 E. Sixth St., reports stated.

A residence assistant told police the two residents of the room were over 21 and allowed to drink. The RA then said he thought there might be someone underage in the room with the two residents.

The two residents of the room admitted to police that they had been drinking but said they had not given alcohol to any minors.

Police found the student in the room who was underage. The student said he had been drinking at parties earlier in the night. The student then told police the two residents had not given him any alcohol and he had not been drinking while in the room.

The student was referred to the dean of students, reports stated.

A man's cell phone, $900 hearing aid, diary, and black leather wallet were stolen Friday night while he was at Bear Down Gym, 1428 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

The man told police he had put his things in a locker in the men's locker room and locked it with a combination lock around 6:15 p.m.

The man said he returned 15 minutes later to find the lock missing and his stuff gone. The man said all of the items had been in his pants.

Police later found the pants under a stairwell.

When the man called to cancel his credit card he was told someone had already tried to use the card six times.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.
