A Coconino Residence Hall resident reported that she has been receiving harassing phone calls since school began.

On Tuesday, the student told university police that she has been getting several calls a day in which someone hangs up every time she answers the phone.

She reported that there is no particular pattern to the phone calls and that she has no idea who the caller is.

Police have no suspects.

A 39-year-old woman was arrested for driving under the influence on Saturday after an officer saw her vehicle heading west on East Sixth Street, swerving and nearly hitting a curb.

Barbara Farnsworth, of the 3600 block of East Monte Vista, parked and exited her car at North Fourth Avenue and Helen Street. She was leaning against it when the officer approached her.

Farnsworth told the officer she had been convicted of driving under influence once before.

A 29-year-old man was arrested at East Sixth Street and Fremont Avenue for driving under the influence and driving on a suspended license Tuesday night.

Hector Minjarez, of the 6000 block of East Sylvane, was stopped by a university police officer after he began straddling the center line while driving eastbound on East Sixth Street.

He told the officer that he had consumed six or seven beers and should not have been driving.

A student's 1991 Honda Accord was damaged Tuesday after a tree limb fell while groundskeepers were trimming the tree.

University employees were trimming a tree on the west side of Cochise Residence Hall, 1018 E. South Campus Dr., because there had been previous problems with branches falling down.

The employee reported that he cut a branch, and before he could catch it, it fell hitting the bed of his crane-style truck. The branch flipped off the truck and struck the vehicle, shattering the rear window and scratching the trunk.

A $500 Specialized Rock Hopper mountain bicycle and a $40 U-Lock were stolen from the east side of University Medical Center over the weekend.

A student left his metallic purple mountain bike locked around 8 a.m. on Friday and then found it missing at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Police have no suspects.
