A man was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol on Tuesday night, after police paced his car traveling at 55 mph along East Speedway Boulevard.

David Castro, of the 6300 block of North Barcelona Lane, was pulled over immediately after police saw his car cross the traffic divider along Speedway.

Castro, 23, took the field sobriety tests and nearly passed out at one point. Officers caught him and helped him lie on the ground before he fell.

Castro was on the ground for about a minute when he told officers he had never drunk so much in his life.

Medics arrived at the scene and said his vital signs were okay. He was cited and released on his promise to appear in court.

Over $7,700 worth of Theater Department sound equipment was reported missing on Monday.

An employee reported that inventory was taken during May and then again before Sept. 5. When the latest inventory was done, the department discovered that audio equipment, including speakers, microphones, stereo equipment and cords, were either stolen or misplaced.

The equipment was housed in Maroney Theater, located at 1025 N. Olive Road, and throughout the department.

Police have no suspects.

A $1,500 IBM compatible computer was stolen sometime during the last week from an office at 1100 E. University Dr.

There were no signs of forced entry. A lot of different staff and faculty had access to the office, but police have no suspects.
