Police Dispatch

Let It Go

Unincorporated Pima County, Oct. 18, 9:32 p.m.

An electrician allegedly threatened to shoot a woman because she wouldn't return his business card, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The woman, a friend of the family that was getting some renovations done on their house, reportedly began "critiquing" the electrician's work after he gave her his card, saying his requests for more money to finish the job were inappropriate.

Family members alleged the electrician became irate when he told her to return his card, and she refused. He left shortly thereafter, the report stated.

The family said the electrician and his daughter then walked into their home unannounced 10 minutes later and threatened to beat up their friend. He reportedly demanded that the woman tape up his card and give it to him after she told him she had ripped it up and thrown it away.

The electrician told a deputy he and his daughter went grocery shopping in between the two alleged encounters, and that he was let in by a family member when he returned to the house.

He scoffed when a deputy asked him if he had threatened to shoot the woman over a business card. The deputy, however, reminded him that he went shopping and returned to the house over the card.

A family member told authorities he wanted to press charges against the electrician for walking into their home. There was no further information at the time of the report.

Who's Got Spartan Spirit?

Fraternity members said "a big white guy" dressed as a Spartan cheerleader from Saturday Night Live started a fight at their house, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

Witnesses said the cheerleader known as "Ace" became agitated and hit a frat member after he and four men he came with were asked to leave the Alpha Epsilon Pi house, 1510 N. Vine Ave. The reported indicated that the men belonged to an unrecognized fraternity known as ZBT that has a house at 1011 N. Tyndall Ave.

The five were eventually pushed outside by frat members, allegedly prompting one of them to throw a bicycle at the building and a car, and another to break two windows.

One of the men, 19-year-old Michael R. Spinner, was arrested on charges of criminal damage and underage drinking. Police transported him to Pima County Jail.

The report didn't say what happened to the cheerleader.
