Mackovic Sucks

University Area, Sept. 27, 6:41 p.m.

Just before UA football coach John Mackovic got his walking papers, police told two men they were not allowed to sell "Mackovic Sucks" T-shirts outside of UA football games, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

Officer J. Brei saw the men, both in their early 20s, selling the red shirts near the south side of the Arizona Stadium, 540 N. Vine Ave. The men had been warned earlier by a campus trademark and licensing employee that they couldn't sell items on campus without the university's consent.

Brei threatened to arrest the men for trespassing if they returned, but told them they could try to sell the shirts off campus, on the south side of East Sixth Street.


With a Little Help From My Friends

South Taylor Lane and West Hermans Road, Sept. 17, 6:50 a.m.

According to a Pima County Sheriff's Department report, two men pushed a 12-year-old boy to the ground before kicking him near his school bus stop.

The Mary E. Dill Middle School student and two friends were waiting for the bus when the student saw two men in the distance. When the student's friends boarded the bus, the men reportedly approached and began to make racial slurs toward the student. They pushed him to the ground and began kicking him, the report stated.

When the student cried out for help, his two friends exited the bus and tried to punch the two men who were attacking the student. The men ran away, and the students eventually got on the bus. They told the principal about the situation when they arrived at school.

The school nurse examined the student and put ice packs on the areas where the student had been hit. She determined that his injuries were not serious.

Officers searched the area but couldn't find any suspects who matched the description.


Ex's Bills

West Camino Horizante Road and North Hartman Road, Sept. 15, 8:09 p.m.

A Tucson woman believes her ex-husband's new wife is using her credit card and insurance information after she received a medical bill for procedures she never had done.

The $350 bill for facial and scalp injuries from the University Physicians Clinic was addressed to the woman's ex-husband, but it had her Social Security number on it, the report stated.

The woman told deputies that she would get a credit report to find out if any fraudulent charges have been made.
