A 43-year-old intoxicated man with "food all over his face" was arrested early Saturday.

Police are seeking charges of driving under the influence, driving with an illegal blood alcohol content and failure to observe lane markings against Jesse L. Nance, of the 1400 block of East Glenn Street.

Police stopped Nance on North Campbell Avenue near East Speedway Boulevard when they saw him swerve to miss a median, then wander between lanes. When police approached the car, they found Nance slumped over the wheel with a taco in his left hand and its contents smeared on his face. Police noted that the man had what appeared to be ground beef on his nose and eyebrows.

When police attempted to conduct a field sobriety test, Nance walked into traffic and had to be directed onto a sidewalk.

Nance told police he drank six glasses of vodka and soda in approximately 1 1/2 hours prior to driving.


An intoxicated man with a green leafy substance was arrested early Saturday on East Speedway Boulevard near North Norris Avenue.

Police are seeking charges of possession of marijuana, driving under the influence and driving with an illegal blood alcohol content against Steven Undzilo, 22, of the 2500 block of East Silver Drive.

Police arrested Undzilo after stopping him for straddling lanes on North Campbell Avenue and noticing his strong alcoholic odor.

Undzilo told police he was not drunk because he drank only two beers that night. After conducting field sobriety tests and handcuffing Undzilo, police found a plastic bag of a green leafy substance on Undzilo.

Undzilo told police he rolled a marijuana cigarette for a friend but did not smoke any marijuana that night. Police later found small particles of a green leafy substance in Undzilo's car.


A former live-in boyfriend who abused his girlfriend may have come to Tucson from Virginia to stalk her.

The victim told police she moved to Tucson last week to escape her ex-boyfriend. The suspect reportedly hit her and threw things at her when they lived together.

Her friend told police she described the man to staff at her residence hall because she was afraid the the man would try to contact the victim through her. Later, a resident assistant told her she had seen the suspect sitting in front of the Student Union.

The man is described as an Asian man, in his 20s, with bleached blond, shoulder-length dredlocks, about 140 lbs, with tattoos on both arms and a possible pierced lip.

Both women were told where to obtain a court order of protection.
