A 21-year-old student was arrested Wednesday for the theft of a $600 UA parking permit.

Police arrested Shawn Parnell, of the 4600 block of East 29th Street, when Parking and Transportation Services called to report that a stolen permit had been seen in Parnell's car, parked at Enke Drive and North Martin Avenue.

When police arrived Parnell was standing near his vehicle and he denied stealing the permit. He told police he found the permit in the street near Enke Drive and North Campbell Avenue earlier that morning. But parking and transportation employees said they observed the permit in the car the day before.

Parnell was cited and released.


Police arrested a 21-year-old student early Wednesday morning for driving under the influence of alcohol after they saw his car swerve several times on East Sixth Street.

Joel Hilshey, of the 200 block of East Delano Drive, was arrested when police observed the car he was driving swerve several times and hit a curb. Officers detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from Hilshey, and after failing several field sobriety tests he admitted to drinking "no more than 10 beers."

Hilshey was transported to University Medical Center for a voluntary blood test. He was cited and released to a friend.
