A handgun and marijuana were found in man's car Tuesday afternoon after he was pulled over for speeding in the University Medical Center parking lot, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., reports stated.

When police pulled the man over, he said he did not have a license because it had been taken away when he was arrested for drinking and driving.

Police ran a records check on the man and saw that he had a warrant.

Police arrested the man and searched him. Police found a small baggie containing a leafy green substance in the man's right side pocket.

The man said, "Yeah, I got some weed on me," reports stated.

Police found another bag of marijuana in the man's car.

They also found a handgun under the driver side seat.

The man did not have a concealed weapons permit, reports stated.

The man was booked into Pima County Jail.

The gun and the marijuana were placed into evidence, reports stated.

A patient threatened a University Medical Center worker Sept. 29 at UMC, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., reports stated.

The worker told police the patient was released after getting an MRI done.

When the patient was released he said, "Okay, so now I am going to go home and kill myself," reports stated.

The worker said the patient was frustrated that he wasn't treated more for his headaches and dizziness.

The patient went to the Sonora Behavioral Health Hospital.

He told doctors there that he was going to shoot the UMC worker like an elk.

The patient also told doctors he had a variety of guns.

The worker told police she was going to file an order of protection, but didn't want the patient to know her name, reports stated.

Three students were cited for underage drinking Tuesday, and one was taken to jail for having two warrants, reports stated.

When police arrived, one of the students was on the ground in fetal position with three other students around him.

The other students helped the student on the ground. Police smelled alcohol on the students' breath.

Three of the students admitted drinking at a restaurant, reports stated.

They told police that the restaurant had not carded them.

The student who had been lying on the ground at first gave police a fake name. When police did a records check, they discovered the two warrants and searched the student. The student had two IDs that weren't his and one that looked fake.

The three IDs were placed into evidence and the student was booked into Pima County Jail, reports stated.

Two students were cited for underage drinking early Wednesday morning on East First Street and North Highland Avenue, reports stated.

Police saw three students walking down the street. When police approached them, they smelled alcohol, reports stated.

The students were released, reports stated.

Two male students threw Tootsie Rolls at another student's window Wednesday while she was getting dressed in her room at Kaibab-Huachuca Residence Hall, reports stated.

When police arrived, the student told them she had been naked and changing when the two male students threw something at her window. The students also yelled that they could see her and that she had a nice ass. The student said she had not realized that her blinds were open.

Police found Tootsie Rolls outside of the student's window.

Police went over to the room across the courtyard and the two male students said they were sorry. They then apologized to the student, reports stated.

The student seemed very upset and told the two male students to leave her alone.

The two male students agreed.

The student told police she was going to complain to her hall director.

Police told the student criminal charges could not be filed since she had left her blinds open and the two male students had a right to be standing at their window, reports stated.
