An 18-year-old student was arrested early Saturday morning and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after police pulled her over for speeding.

The student, of the 3800 block of River Oak Lane, was pulled over after police paced her vehicle traveling 60 miles-per-hour down North Campbell Avenue. The posted speed in the area is 35 m.p.h.

Upon approaching her's vehicle, police detected a strong odor of alcohol and noticed she had a wrist band and stamp on her hand. She told police she was returning from a fraternity party where she had been drinking.

After performing a field sobriety test, she was arrested and taken to UAPD for processing. She was later released to her brother.


Police arrested a 30-year-old man Monday after an employee of the Visitor's Center, 1600 E. University Blvd., called to complain that the man was yelling and talking to himself outside.

When police arrived Kenneth Martinez, of the 2200 block of East Monterey Vista, was seated on a bench talking to another person. The police questioned the person who said Martinez had offered to sell her marijuana and was previously swearing at traffic in the intersection and yelling to himself.

Martinez was searched for weapons and police found a small metal pipe and a small bag of what they believe to be marijuana.

Martinez was arrested and transported to Pima County Jail for processing.


A student reported Monday his $700 bicycle was stolen March 28 between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. from a bicycle post near Old Main.

The student did not say why he waited so long to report the theft.

He said he locked his Cannondale SR 400 men's road bicycle with a cable lock to a parking block near Old Main before class. When he returned the master lock from the cable had been cut and the bicycle was missing.

Police have no suspects.
