Two students were arrested Saturday and charged with minor operating a vehicle with alcohol in the body after both were seen running stop signs.
James Grimes III, 20, of the 4000 block of Orangewood Drive, was pulled over at about 10 p.m. after he ran the stop sign at East Second Street and North Park Avenue.
When an officer approached Grimes' vehicle he smelled a strong alcohol odor coming from the car.
Grimes told police he had been at a party earlier where he drank 7 to 8 beers. He was arrested and taken to UAPD for processing and released.
The second incident occurred when police witnessed Hunter B. Rozen, 19, a resident of Graham-Greenlee Residence Hall, run the stop sign at North Mountain Avenue and East Second Street.
When police stopped Rozen he initially said he had not been drinking alcohol but when police said they could smell alcohol coming from the vehicle he admitted to drinking at a Delta Tau Delta fraternity party earlier in the evening.
Rozen was arrested, taken to UAPD and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and minor operating a vehicle with alcohol in the body.
A member of Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity reported his 1989 GMC pickup truck stolen from its parking lot Monday between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
Another member of the fraternity said he saw an unknown man standing alone in the lot at 638 E. University Blvd. around 8 p.m. He said when the man noticed him he ran to a nearby car and then sped away. Then he said he saw the victim's truck leave the lot rapidly traveling in the same direction as the suspect's vehicle.
The witness said he assumed the owner of the vehicle was the person driving the truck.
