Six men, including two UA students, were arrested for trying to sell basketball tickets in front of McKale Center Tuesday evening.
Jason D. Kubly, 19, of the 3200 block of North Martin Avenue, Robert D. Downs, 37, of the 6600 block of Positano Way, and a 17-year-old male were arrested about 6:30 p.m. after police saw the three attempting to sell $13 tickets for $15 apiece.
John Alan Baumann, 39, of the 3200 block of North Nambe Drive, was arrested shortly before 8 p.m. after police heard he was selling two $18 basketball tickets for $25 in front of McKale Center.
Michael D. Link, 32, a UA student of the 5800 block of East First Street, was arrested shortly after 7 p.m. after a plain-clothes police officer noticed him holding a sign which read "B. Season Tix 4 Sale" and two sheets of basketball season tickets worth a total of $50.
The officer approached Link and asked him if he was selling tickets, who then said he was selling them for $150. Link said he acquired the tickets through a student raffle.
Patrick J. Brennan, 31, a UA student of the 100 block of East Second Street, was arrested after a security officer witnessed Brennan selling two $4 tickets for $9 apiece in front of McKale Center.
All the males were escorted without handcuffs to a police outpost, cited and released on site.
A 31-year-old male was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct Tuesday near the intersection of North Tyndall Avenue and East Sixth Street.
David A. Neal, no permanent address, was arrested after police noticed the male wandering down Tyndall Avenue near a stoplight. When police stopped at the stoplight, Neal immediately approached the vehicle and said, "How do I get the hell out of here?"
Police instructed Neal to walk toward Sixth Street, but Neal appeared confused and started to walk away from Sixth Street. Police then instructed him to wait on the side of the street.
Dispatch notified officers that a man called UAPD earlier and said Neal had asked him for money. The man said he was trying to jump start another car when Neal walked up to the car, touched the jumper cables, and said, "You guys need to get out of here."
When the man asked why, Neal replied, "You guys need to get out of here," and asked him for money. The man was willing to press charges.
