A 23-year-old UA football player was arrested Tuesday afternoon and charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly made threatening statements to a parking and transportation employee who was ticketing his vehicle.

The employee contacted police and said Sean Harris, of the 1700 block of North Park Avenue, insulted him and snatched a citation out of his hands.

When police arrived at the scene near McKale Center, the employee told them he noticed Harris' car parked illegally with a citation on the windshield. When he checked the citation, he noticed it was given earlier in the day at a different location.

When he began writing a new citation he said Harris arrived and said he couldn't ticket the vehicle and called him various names. The employee said Harris stood very close to him in an intimidating manner. When he asked Harris if he was trying to threaten him, Harris allegedly replied, "What are you going to do about it?"

After talking to Harris and the employee, police felt Harris' action warranted a disorderly conduct citation. He was released at the scene.

Police arrested a 42-year-old man and charged him with theft under $250 after a facilities management employee saw him take a bicycle tire from an area near Coronado Residence Hall.

When police arrived they witnessed Sonny Hill, of a general delivery address, run into Coronado and then run out quickly and jump into a vehicle. Police stopped the vehicle and questioned Hill about his actions.

Hill admitted to taking the bicycle tire which he said he thought did not belong to anyone since it was lying on the ground.

He was cited and released.

No evidence of the theft was found at the scene and police have no suspects.
