A handicap door was damaged sometime before Saturday morning at the Bear Down Gym, 1428 E. University Blvd., reports stated.

When police arrived, the edge of the door was cracked and there were scratches along the frame. It looked like an object had been jimmied within the doorframe.

An employee from campus security told police he had noticed the damage when he unlocked the door around 8:30 a.m.

The door and the lock still worked properly.

None of the other doors in the area had been damaged.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A student's mother got into an argument with two students at the front desk in the Coronado Residence Hall, 882 E. Fifth St., Saturday afternoon, after the students wouldn't let her into the elevator without an escort, reports stated.

When police arrived, the mother said she was very angry and said she felt the students had overreacted and were being rude.

The mother said both students had been rude to her on previous occasions and she said she was tired of it.

The mother said the students had told her she had to wait in the lobby for her daughter and could not go up in the elevator without an escort.

The mother said she got mad at how the students said it and not at what they said, reports stated.

The mother told police that the students were out of control with power and using it against her.

The student said after she and the other student had told the mother not to go up she had walked past the desk and tried to get into the elevator anyway.

The student said the mother then became loud and verbally abusive and got into the elevator. One of the students held the doors to the elevator open and told the other student to call police.

The mother said she knew the rules of the residence hall, but said she was not a threat to anyone.

Both students told police that the mother had been disruptive and had kept them from doing their work, reports stated.

The mother was cited for disorderly conduct and reminded about the residence hall policies, reports stated.

A man was arrested at the football game in Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave., Saturday night after he threw a napkin at one of the referees, reports stated.

Police were escorting the referees after the second quarter because the crowd was very hostile towards them.

Police were watching the crowd and saw a man throw a piece of paper at one of the referees.

Police then tried to escort the man out of the stadium but he pulled away and yelled, "I just threw a napkin," reports stated.

The man was taken out of the crowd. The man said, "I knew I shouldn't do that, but the referees suck."

The man was cited for disorderly conduct and released.

He was also ejected from the game, reports stated.

All of the files were erased from a computer at University Medical Center, 1501 E. Campbell Ave., sometime before Wednesday, reports stated.

When police arrived, a UMC employee told them the computer was wiped out. The employee said he had also found several computer disks in the trashcan.

The employee said another employee who had used the computer had quit a few days ago.

The employee was not sure if any patient files were missing.

The employee said it would cost $800 to restore the computer programming. He said it would also cost another $200 to reconfigure the computer.

The employee said he did not want police to contact the former employee and just wanted to document the incident, reports stated.

A student was cited for underage drinking early Saturday morning after medics were called in to treat him at the Arizona/Sonora Residence Hall, 910 E. Fifth St., reports stated.

When police arrived they noticed there was vomit and feces all over the room.

After the medics left, the student told police he had started drinking around midnight. The student said he drank 13 shots of tequila. The student told police he didn't know where the alcohol had come from.

The student was cited and released, reports stated.
