A UA football player was arrested Monday after he reportedly tried to remove a boot from his car and punched a parking meter.

Police are seeking charges of criminal damage and theft of services against Adam K. Tinker, 18, of the 6400 block of East Golf Links Road.

Witnesses reported seeing Tinker "pound" on a meter three times, stopping when people would pass by on North Park Avenue and East Fourth Street. Tinker told police he paid for the two hours displayed on the meter.

A shuttle bus driver told police he saw Tinker try to remove a boot placed on the car's left front wheel. A parking and transportation spokesman said the boot, which Tinker reportedly damaged, was put on his car for several unpaid tickets.


Two men were arrested in their Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall room after someone smelled marijuana in the room Tuesday.

Police are seeking charges of possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia against Michael S. Fischer and Saraf Siddharth, both 18. Fischer also faces a minor in possession of alcohol charge.

Upon a consensual search of the room, police found a plastic bag of marijuana, two pipes with marijuana residue, a cigarette rolling machine, cigarette papers and a can of beer.


Someone stole a bicycle valued at $1,599 Thursday from the bicycle racks west of Gallagher Theatre.

The owner told police he locked his Pro-Flex red mountain bike at 7:30 p.m. When he returned at 9:15 p.m. the lock was lying on the ground and the bicycle was gone.

Police said the lock looked like it had been forced open with a carjack.
