A man was arrested for possession of marijuana and having two Tucson Police Department warrants early Friday morning after he was pulled over on North Park Avenue and East First Street, reports stated.

Police pulled the man over because he didn't have a license plate. Police couldn't tell if the piece of paper in the lower left corner of the window was a temporary tag.

After police pulled the man over, they realized the piece of paper was a temporary tag, reports stated.

The man had trouble finding his registration and seemed confused.

Police smelled marijuana in the man's car. When police asked the man if he smoked marijuana, the man said, "Earlier I did," reports stated.

Police then asked the man if he had any marijuana on him and the man pulled a sandwich bag with marijuana in it out of his left shorts pocket.

The man told police he didn't have any more marijuana and said there was no marijuana in his car.

The man told police they could search his car.

Police found another sandwich bag with marijuana in it under the driver's seat.

A records check on the man showed he had two outstanding warrants.

The man was booked into Pima County Jail, reports stated.

Someone cut a hole in a chain link fence sometime before Friday morning at Campbell Farm, 4040 N. Campbell Ave., reports stated.

When police arrived, a UA employee said another UA employee had seen the damage while she was walking her dog around 7 a.m.

The employee said he had no idea when the fence had been cut and said it must have been done recently.

The employee said there was nothing missing from the farm.

Police have no suspects or witnesses, reports stated.

A teaching assistant said he was worried about a student's behavior Thursday morning after the student had been kicked out of his lab in the Harvill building, 1103 E. Second St., reports stated.

The TA told police he had revoked the student's access to a computer account for violation of lab policy. The TA said the student had been printing class notes, which was against policy.

The TA said a few days later he was working at a bar on North Fourth Avenue when the student came in.

The TA said the student came up to him and said, "What the fuck do you think you're doing, fucking with my grade?"

The TA said the student's restriction to the lab had affected the student's grade.

The TA told police he had had the student removed from the bar.

A doorman told the TA the student said, "He is done; next time I see him, he is done," reports stated.

The TA reported the incident to the Dean of Students and the student was dismissed from the TA's class.

Police told the TA to report any further incidents, reports stated.

Three students were cited for underage drinking Thursday night while they were at University Medical Center, 1501 N. Campbell Ave., reports stated.

When police arrived, UMC staff told them one of the students had been brought there for extreme intoxication. Staff told police the student was going to be OK, but said she was very drunk.

UMC staff said they would call police when the student woke up so she could sign her citation.

Police spoke to the other two students who were waiting in the lobby. One of the students told police she and the other student had been at a party when the other student got sick.

Police smelled alcohol on the two students' breath.

The students were cited and released, reports stated.

Someone knocked over a student's $1,700 black and chrome motorcycle Sunday morning while it was parked in front of the Theta Tau fraternity, 1030 N. Martin Ave., reports stated.

When police arrived, the student said he saw a man leaning over his motorcycle. The student said he had then seen the motorcycle fall over. The student then jumped off of the balcony and ran towards his motorcycle.

The student said the man ran away. The man was wearing a Phi Delta Theta shirt, reports stated.

Police spoke to the president to Phi Delta Theta. He told police all of the members had been wearing the same shirt that day. The president said if he found out who had knocked the motorcycle over, he would call police.

There were scratches to the chrome on the exhaust pipes, scratches on the right side of the motorcycle and the saddlebag was cracked, reports stated.
