A resident of Sierra Residence Hall, 1557 E. 6th St., reported receiving a harrassing message on her answering machine Thursday.

Sometime between 10:30 a.m. and 11:20 a.m., a male caller whispered, "I'm going to kill you, you fucking nigger," on the victim's machine.

The victim said she did not recognize the voice, and that she had not received any previous harrassing or threatening messages. She said, however, that she believes the incident may be related to an earlier report in which another student received a similar message.

Police gave the victim the phone number for the Center for Computing and Information Technology so she could request a skip trace for her phone.

Officers arrested a 26-year-old man Thursday night after he allegedly followed a woman into a ladies' restroom at Arizona Stadium.

Michael C. Fimbres, of the 5200 block of S. Pine Way, was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of a suspended license.

The victim, who said her husband is a member of the Georgia Tech coaching staff, went into a ladies' room on the second floor of the west stadium. A male subject followed her into the restroom.

The victim locked the stall door, and the man began pounding on the door and yelled at her to get out of the stall.

The victim screamed until a Pima County Sheriff's Deputy arrived and removed the man.

Officers noticed the man had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

During questioning, the man produced a suspended Arizona driver's license as his identification.

Fimbres was booked into Pima County Jail.

Police responded to a fight in section 4, row 28 of Arizona Stadium during Thursday's Arizona-Georgia Tech football game.

When officers arrived at about 8 p.m., they found two victims. One man had "goose-egg swelling" to his forehead, and the other appeared to have suffered a bloody nose.

A witness said he tried to break up the fight, which involved members of his fraternity.

One of the victims said the fight started when he and his friends asked the people in the row in front of them to stop waving banners and flags in their faces.

A member of the fraternity then stepped up and struck one of the victims.

The two suspects were ejected from the game. The victim with injuries to his forehead was checked by medical personnel. The victim was dazed and was not sure if he wanted to prosecute.
