The Teddy Bear Tryst

Wetmore and Oracle Roads, Jan. 11, 9:48 p.m.

A seriously disabled man said his wife started hallucinating and accused him of impregnating the teddy bears that decorate his room, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

The 57-year-old man said his wife walked into his bedroom, made the accusation and then struck him in the mouth. A deputy noted dried blood in the corner of the man's mouth.

The woman at first said she had been drinking at a tavern before she returned home. She then said she had been in her bedroom all evening and that her husband had hit her. The deputy did not see any marks on the woman's body, the report said.

Authorities arrested the woman on a charge of domestic violence and transported her to the Pima County Adult Detention Center.

Stickers Everywhere

UA Area, Jan. 23, 10:02 a.m.

Someone placed "Bush Step Down" stickers throughout a UA building over a weekend, a University of Arizona Police Department report said.

More than 15 stickers were found in the hallways and two rooms of the Ina Gittings Building, 1716 E. University Blvd. They had been placed on TV screens, a clock, a fire-extinguisher box and other items.

UA personnel said the building had been open over the weekend to host a science camp.

Some of the stickers wouldn't peel away cleanly, so the UA custodial service was called to remove them. There didn't appear to be permanent damage, and there were no suspects at the time of the report.

Dude, Where's My Car?

Ruthrauff Road and Interstate 10, Jan. 11, 1:47 p.m.

According to a PCSD report, a man accused the owners of a body shop of making excuses to not give his car back to him.

The man told a PCSD operator that he brought his 1987 Chevrolet Suburban into AAA Automotive and Transmission, 4809 N. Sunrise Ave., on Dec. 16. He said the shop called on Jan. 6 and said they had located the problem, and that the issue would be taken care of by Jan. 9.

When the car's owner showed up on Jan. 9, he found that the shop was closed, and there was a sign in the window that said "Family Emergency."

The shop was still locked up on Jan. 10, the man said. He alleged the shop's owner said there had been a break-in over the weekend. But the man said he had checked, and there wasn't a report of a break-in.

There was no further information at the time of the report.
