Oro Valley Police reports

On Friday, June 10, at 4:16 p.m., Oro Valley police were dispatched for a call of road rage. The person who called told the police that a man in a white-and-gray truck tailgated her and ran her off the road. She also provided police with the truck's license plate number. The plate returned a matching vehicle, so police drove toward the residence of the truck's owner. The police officer noticed a vehicle passing him that matched the truck's description and confirmed it was the vehicle in question by its license plate.

The officer turned on his emergency lights and executed a U-turn to follow the truck. As he did, the truck's driver pulled in his driveway and into the carport. The man was exiting his vehicle as the officer pulled up.

The man told police the other vehicle cut him off, he and the driver exchanged words, and that was it. The officer also noticed a strong smell of intoxicants coming from the man, that his eyes were red, watery and bloodshot, his speech was slurred, and he was using his vehicle for support. The woman who reported the incident told police she did not want to be a victim of road rage, so police proceeded with a DUI investigation. The man refused to answer any questions or perform any sobriety tests. He was placed under arrest for DUI.

During a search, police found a pipe with marijuana residue in it, according to reports. At that point the man told police they didn't see him driving and he had been home for an hour and a half. He was taken to an Oro Valley police substation to have his blood taken. He was then taken to Pima County Jail for DUI. Along the way, the man threatened to kick in the officer's teeth, according to reports. He told police he would take them to court and take the officer's badge. He also told police he is able drink beer and smoke dope on his own property.

On Friday, June 10, at 8:30 a.m., Oro Valley police responded to the 11700 block of Mesquite Hollow Drive in reference to vandalism. The victim told police that at about 12:30 a.m., someone rang his doorbell. He did not get up or answer the door. The victim told police he believes that is when someone toilet-papered his front yard and threw eggs against the house and on a window. There also was a pickle jar left in the entryway that appeared to have feces in it. There was no visible damage caused by the eggs or toilet paper.

On Tuesday, June 7, at 5:18 p.m., Oro Valley police responded to the 500 block of Hardy Road in response to a car break-in. When police arrived, the victim told police she got to work around 2 p.m., locked her vehicle and went to work. At about 5:15 p.m., she returned to her car to find the passenger-side, rear-door window had been shattered. She noticed her black laptop bag, valued at $75, was missing. All that was in the bag were personal files from her job. The files had no financial value.
