Police Dispatch 


UA Area , Sept. 20, 10:07 p.m.

Two vehicles pinned a woman's leg between them during a fender-bender, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

The woman was reportedly sitting in the back of a sport-utility vehicle with its hatch door open. The vehicle was backing out of a parking lot at the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house, 1449 N. Cherry Ave., its driver told police.

At the same time, another woman was pulling her car into the parking lot.

Both drivers said the woman in the back of the sport-utility vehicle was attempting to close the hatch door when she slipped, causing her leg to hang out. The cars reportedly bumped at about 5 miles per hour, pinning her leg.

The accident occurred on private property, so no citations were given. The Tucson Fire Department transported the woman, who appeared to have a compound fracture, to University Medical Center.

Pump To The Head

Valencia and Mission Roads, Sept. 6, 7:43 p.m.

A boy allegedly threw a tire pump at a man who confronted him about writing "nasty things" about the man's stepmother on a community mailbox, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The stepmother said she told the boy not to write such things on government property, and the boy allegedly started berating her.

Her 18-year-old stepson reportedly intervened. He claimed the boy picked up a rock and acted like he was going to throw it, but instead threw a tire pump, which struck him in the head.

A deputy noted the man was bleeding from a wound just under the hairline.

The boy's mother alleged her son only threw the tire pump after the man swung at him.

The man declined to press charges. A deputy told the boy to contact his probation officer about the incident.


Benson Highway and Country Club Road, Sept. 5, 6:47 p.m.

A woman said her husband emptied a glass bottle of beer on her head at a bar, a PCSD report stated.

Deputies caught up with the woman as a friend was driving her home from M & M's Saloon, 3364 E. Benson Highway. She said her husband was upset about a flood that happened at their home.

The husband claimed his wife had hit him first, the report said. But when asked later, he reportedly admitted throwing a beer at her.

Deputies booked the husband at Pima County Adult Detention Center on a domestic-violence charge. His wife was also booked on an outstanding warrant.

    When hipsters do something that's slightly outside the law yet an innovation over the old guard, they get a Series-C round of funding, Instagram influencers, and fawning media coverage. When Mexicans do it? We get code enforcement.
