Hell Hath No Fury

UA Area, Feb. 25, 9:41 a.m.

Authorities arrested a woman for trying to run over her boyfriend after she allegedly found voice mail from another woman on his cellular phone, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

Antonieta M. Gallego, 18, told authorities that she drove to her boyfriend's place of work, at a UA construction site, to talk to him after making the discovery.

Gallego said she picked up her boyfriend at the site and started yelling at him. She allegedly admitted punching him in the face, prompting him to get out of the car and flee.

According to the report, Gallego chased her boyfriend with her car. She told an officer that she didn't know what she was thinking at the time, but she knew she was driving straight at him.

Gallego admitted that she nearly collided with a parked car behind which her boyfriend ducked, so she parked her vehicle and started chasing him on foot, but was unable to find him.

Witnesses at the construction site said Gallego's actions caused work to stop completely. They said it appeared that she twice tried to hit her boyfriend with her car.

Her boyfriend said the confrontation wasn't physical, and there were no marks or bruises on his body.

An officer asked Gallego if she wanted to bring anything with her when she was taken to the Pima County Jail. She instructed the officer to remove a small purse from within a larger purse that was inside her car, so she could take some money.

The officer who was retrieving the item noticed what appeared to be marijuana inside the purse, in a plastic bag. Gallego reportedly said she forgot she had it and was unsure if it was hers or her boyfriend's.

Police arrested Gallego on charges of aggravated assault, disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and for driving with a revoked license. Her car was impounded.


Even Wispy Girls Do It

Tanque Verde and Houghton Roads, Feb. 27, 3:29 p.m.

A man said a petite teenage girl toppled a portable toilet near his home, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

The man said he saw the girl, who was no more than 14 years old and about 5 feet 4 inches tall, walking with two female friends. He then heard a crash and saw the same girl running up the street after her friends.

The reportee said he called the company that maintained the toilet to clean up the mess. A deputy drove around the area to see if he could find the girls, without success.
