Her car had a significant amount of front-end damage and was disabled. She told police her phone’s battery was dead and she used a witness’s phone to call her father, who picked her up and took her home. When asked, she told police she drank two beers earlier in the evening. After taking a couple field sobriety tests, the driver was placed under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. She was later cited and released for DUI in physical control to the slightest degree, DUI for having a BAC higher than .08, failure to notify the owners of damaged mailboxes, and criminal damage. Damage to one mailbox was valued at $400; the owners of the other two mailboxes could not be reached.

On Monday, Sept. 26, at about midnight, Oro Valley police responded to an apartment at 8215 N. Oracle Road in response to an unwanted person.

He also told police she hit him earlier in the day. Police met with the woman, who was sitting outside the victim’s apartment, and put her in handcuffs. She told police she had visited the victim’s apartment the night before and talked him into coming back to her hotel room, where they had stayed the night together. She said they had argued a little at night and a little in the morning. She said after he left in the morning she followed him from downtown Tucson to his apartment because he had taken money from her and she wanted it back.
