MAMA'S MAN

SOUTH CARDINAL AVENUE

JAN. 25, 11:47 A.M.

An alleged panhandler went to jail after demanding money to call his mother from a pay phone, according to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report.

Deputies responding to a call about a fight brewing between two men at a southside AM/PM located both subjects. The alleged panhandler admitted that he had been at the AM/PM and asked a customer for some change, at which point, he said, the man "went off on him." The panhandling subject told deputies that he, in turn, "went off" on the customer.

When deputies interviewed the customer, he said that when he pulled up to the convenience store in his car, the other man approached him and was "very aggressive" in asking for 50 cents so he could call his mom. The customer said he told the man to "go away and leave me alone."

The customer said the panhandling subject then waited at the convenience-store door, and screamed and swore at him as he exited. At that point, the customer called law enforcement.

The alleged panhandler was taken to jail. It wasn't known whether he used his free phone call to contact his mother.


INSIDE-OUT AND OUT OF IT

UA AREA

JAN. 27, 1:14 A.M.

A University of Arizona student passed out with her pants on inside-out after a bout of drinking, a UA Police Department report said.

An officer was dispatched to the Posada San Pedro dormitory, 601 N. Highland Ave., in response to a call by the dorm's resident assistant, who said a resident had collapsed in her bed—apparently in her own vomit.

After the 18-year-old girl was awakened, she said that she'd drank about five shots of vodka in a different part of the UA campus. The police report said she smelled strongly of alcohol, and that her eyes were bloodshot, and her speech was slurred.

When the reporting officer noticed that she was wearing her jeans inside-out, the girl told the officer that they were on "right-side-out" when she'd left her room earlier that evening. She said she didn't know how they came to be reversed. The report said the girl showed no distress regarding the state of her pants, and the report gave no indication that a sex crime may have occurred.

The girl was arrested on suspicion of underage drinking and released at the scene (apparently her dorm room). Records showed she had been arrested six weeks earlier on the same charge.
