Police beat: November 13

A weird feeling

A UA student was arrested and taken to the hospital for minor in possession of alcohol on Nov. 6 at 2:30 a.m., after an officer from the University of Arizona Police Department received a call about an intoxicated woman at a residence hall.

When the officer arrived, he spoke with a resident assistant, who said a student had knocked on her door and said she “felt weird.”

The Tucson Fire Department also responded to the scene to provide medical assistance.

The officer spoke to the student, who said she had been drinking at Alpha Epsilon Pi. She said she had drunk seven sake bombs.

While speaking with the student, the officer noticed she was slurring her words, had red watery eyes and smelled strongly of alcohol.

The student said she was gluten intolerant and was not supposed to eat pasta or drink beer, but had eaten a large pasta dinner and drunk beer earlier in the night.

She also said she had taken prescription medication prior to consuming the beer.

An ambulance took the student to the University of Arizona Medical Center for evaluation. She was also cited and released for underage drinking.

Shady bandit

On Nov. 6 at 2:11 p.m., a UA employee reported that a woman had stolen a pair of shoes from the UA A-Store at Main Gate on Park Avenue.

A UAPD officer met with the manager of the store. The manager told the officer that a woman in her early twenties had come into the store earlier that day and taken several items into a dressing room to try them on, including a pair of TOMS shoes in the box.

After she tried on the items, she took them back to where she had gotten them and left without buying anything.

When the manager checked the shoe area of the store, he discovered the TOMS box the woman had taken into the dressing room was empty.
He described the woman as a white college-age woman with brown hair and acne who was wearing a purple shirt, jean shorts and sunglasses.

The manager gave the officer a receipt for the shoes for the amount of $55.

A loss prevention employee agreed to provide a copy of the store video of the woman. The receipt was placed into property and evidence.
