Two roommates were fighting Wednesday afternoon at the Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, 1418 E. Fourth St., reports stated.

When police arrived a student told them that around 4 that morning someone had opened the door to his dorm and thrown a water bottle in. The student said the water bottle hit his roommate in the head.

The student said he and his roommate hadn't gotten along all semester and said his roommate blames him for leaving the door unlocked and allowing the water bottle in, reports stated.

The student said he had gone into his room around 3 p.m. and his roommate had started yelling at him. The student said his roommate had struck him in the face and neck and then pushed him to the ground.

Police noticed there was no visible injury to the student's face or neck. The student said he just wanted police to talk to his roommate and didn't want to press charges, reports stated.

The roommate told police the student had been harassing him all semester. The roommate said the student had indirectly threatened him on previous occasions.

The roommate admitted to pushing the student out the door. The roommate said he had wanted to close the door because he didn't know what the student was going to do to him, reports stated.

A custodian who had been in the hall when the fight occurred told police he had only seen the roommate push the student out the door and said he hadn't seen anything else.

The hall director told police he was working on moving the students into different rooms, reports stated.

A student was arrested Wednesday night after he was caught using a fake Zone 1 permit by Parking and Transportation Services, 1117 E. Sixth St., reports stated.

A PTS employee told police he had noticed the fake permit around 7 p.m. The employee said the student's car had been towed to Tucson Wrecker. The employee said the student had said he made the permit because he was paying for school on his own and couldn't afford to buy the $250 permit.

The employee told police that PTS didn't want to press charges, reports stated.

The student told police he had been using the fake permit since the beginning of the year and said he couldn't afford to buy a parking permit. The student said he had known he was taking a chance and could get caught but had decided to do it anyway.

The student said he made the fake permit by making a color copy of his friend's Zone 1 permit. The student said he had then taped the copy onto his friend's old Zone 1 permit.

The student admitted that it hadn't been a great idea.

The student was cited and released for theft of services. He was also referred to the Dean of Students.

The fake permit was put into evidence, reports stated.

Three men tried to steal a UA golf cart Wednesday night from in front of the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., reports stated.

The employee said the three men had fled when they saw him.

The ignition switch on the golf cart had been damaged but was still functional, reports stated.
