A 22-year-old was arrested for driving under the influence on Tuesday afternoon after he failed to obey a traffic control device at North Park Avenue and Sixth Street.

Jason Spath, of the 2500 block of North Tyndall Avenue, was stopped after an officer saw him fail to obey the right- or left-turn only sign immediately south of Sixth Street on Park Avenue.

Spath agreed to field sobriety tests, but refused to take the intoxilyzer exam. During the sobriety tests, Spath admitted to drinking a pitcher of Miller Lite before driving home.

A student's blue Volvo was vandalized intentionally on Monday night while it was parked at the Corleone Apartments.

The car was parked by the owner's boyfriend at 1330 N. Park Ave. around 7:30 p.m.
