Four 20-year-old students were arrested Thursday for various alcohol offenses in the 1500 block of East Drachman.

Police are seeking charges of minor in possession, misrepresentation of age, and failure to appear in court against Chal C. Lentscher, of the 1500 block of East Drachman, and minor in possession charges against Laurie A. Katzen, of the 1400 block of East Second Street, Jonathan Katzen and Aaron M. Segal, both of the 2900 block of East Fort Lowell Road.

Lentscher was arrested after fleeing from the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house when police arrived to mediate a fight between Lentscher and Segal. Segal later said the fight was only an argument between friends.

Lentscher ran to University Heights Apartments, 1201 N. Park Ave., where police saw him enter a third floor apartment. When police proceded up the stairs, Lentscher jumped off a balcony and ran northwest through a parking lot.

He was arrested after he unsuccessfully tried to scale a block wall. Lentscher told police he resisted arrest because of the warrant out on him. He was booked at Pima County Jail.

The other minors were cited and released at the fraternity house. All four appeared intoxicated to officers and admitted to drinking beer that evening.


A $430 Rockhopper mountain bike was stolen Thursday in the 1500 block of East University Boulevard.

The owner told police he locked his bike to the rack on the north side of the Main Library at 4:30 p.m. The bike reportedly was locked by the frame but only the front tire and U-lock were left intact.


Someone stole the front tire from a mountain bike Wednesday that was secured to a car's carrying rack.

The owner told police the $85 quick release tire and rim was stolen sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m.


A $300 bike was stolen August 23 in the 1300 block of East University Boulevard.

The victim told police she locked her sister-in-law's Raleigh Ladies purple mountain bike to a rack on the east end of the Student Union at noon. When she returned 15 minutes later the bike and the U-lock were gone.
