Humping Around

West Ruthrauff Road and North La Cholla Boulevard, May 16, 7:51 p.m.

According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report, several witnesses at a bar accused a man, who was singing karaoke, of "dry humping" and berating a fellow patron.

Witnesses said the man walked up to the alleged victim, who was seated, and thrust his crotch against the victim's shoulders.

One of the patron's friends also told deputies that the man repeatedly swore at everyone sitting at their table during a lull in the song. He then flipped them off and continued singing, the friend said.

The girlfriend of the accused man, who also happened to be a bartender, told deputies that he had been upset at the patron and his friend because of the "lewd connotations" in a rap song they had chosen to sing during family night.

Deputies were unable to immediately contact the man, as he left shortly after the incident.

Something's Burning

West Irvington Road and South Camino de Oeste, May 10, 8:38 a.m.

A student alleged that one of his peers lit his (the alleging student's) hair on fire while they were preparing a surprise party for their teacher, a PCSD report stated.

A third student said he saw the teen with a lighter in his hand walk up behind the other student, and then smelled burning hair.

Both students said the teen laughed as the alleged victim patted the back of his head to put out the fire.

The teen denied the accusations. He said a lit candle on the teacher's cake accidentally touched the back of the student's head.

A deputy arrested the teen on charges of endangerment and assault. He was released into his mother's custody.


University Area, May 17, 4:35 p.m.

A fraternity member told rival fraternity residents that he was going to provoke a fight with one of their brothers in order to recoup the money he'd had to pay him for damaging his car, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The man reportedly walked into the rival house, drunk, and told residents he was going to start a fight with the man he paid so he could sue him.

Police later contacted the man at his fraternity house. He said he had been drunk that night and that his comments were meant as a joke.

Police told him that due to his remarks, he would immediately be a suspect if the man he threatened became the victim of a crime.
