Oh No, Make The Car Go

UA Area, Nov. 26, 9 a.m.

An allegedly drunk man who had been sleeping in his car tried to speed off without realizing that the officer who found him was holding his keys, a University of Arizona Police Department report stated.

An officer spotted 18-year-old Mason Alexander Hurst's silver Lincoln Continental parked on the east side of Park Avenue, just south of Eighth Street. The report said Hurst was sleeping across the front seat and that the interior of his vehicle smelled of alcohol.

Hurst reportedly identified himself as "301" several times before handing the officer his keys.

The officer asked Hurst to step out of his car, allegedly prompting him to say, "Oh, no, five-o." Hurst then repeatedly tried to put his car into drive, the report said.

"I had to remind him the vehicle was off, and I had the keys," the officer wrote.

Hurst was cited for underage drinking. The officer phoned his mother and had her pick him up, the report said.


Pizza And Punishment

Sunrise Drive and Sabino Canyon Road, Nov. 20, 5:09 p.m.

The father of a teenage girl allegedly beat up his daughter's boyfriend, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report said.

According to the report, the boyfriend was outside preparing to eat a pizza brought to him by his girlfriend, who works at Arizona Pizza Company, 4955 N. Sabino Canyon Road.

The teenager said a man he didn't recognize started choking him out of the blue, and then kept asking his name as he dragged him into the parking lot.

At first, the teen said he didn't recognize his alleged attacker. He told authorities the man punched him three or four times, just after the attacker's identity dawned on him.

The teen said his girlfriend's father then got on top of him and punched him about 15 more times. The attacker also kicked and stomped on him, the teenager alleged.

Soon after, the teen said, his girlfriend's father got into a Ford Probe and sped off.

The girlfriend told deputies she didn't see anything, as she was working inside the restaurant. She said she talked to her father on the phone just after the alleged incident, and he admitted attacking her boyfriend. Her father also told her the boy "deserved it," she said. There was no information in the report about a possible motive.

The girl provided deputies with her father's cellular phone number, but said she did not know where exactly he lives.
