411 West Martin Luther King (non-UT property)

Public Intoxication: A UT police officer observed a non-UT subject loose a battle with gravity in a pizzeria parking lot. The subject had difficulty standing and walking and was found to be under the influence of an alcoholic beverage to the point he was deemed to be a danger to himself. Occurred on 07/28/15 at 8:00 PM.

411 West Martin Luther King (non-UT property)

Disorderly Conduct – Threatens Another : While initiating the stop in the previous entry, the police officer noticed a second non-UT subject yelling at the person who had fallen. Upon approaching both parties, an employee from the pizzeria hurriedly approached the scene and warned the officer the yelling subject may be armed with a weapon. The investigation showed the employee directed the yelling subject to leave patrons in the parking lot alone and to leave the property. After being directed to leave, the yelling subject turned and reached behind his back as if retrieving a concealed weapon. The employee asked the subject if he was “going to draw down on him” to which the subject replied, “Yeah, I am.” The employee retreated into the pizzeria. No weapon was found on the yelling subject. Occurred on 07/28/15 at 8:00 PM.

8200 North MoPac Expressway (non-UT property)

Driving While License Invalid / Assist Outside Agency: While traveling in a clearly marked patrol vehicle, a UT police officer observed a Chrysler sedan approach the rear of the patrol vehicle and travel closely to the patrol vehicle’s rear bumper for a fair distance before the driver changed lanes and passed the patrol vehicle at a rate of travel much higher than the posted sign (law) allowed. When stopped, it was discovered the non-UT driver had three outstanding outside agency arrest warrants for speeding (2) and running a red light. It was also learned the subject’s driver’s license had previously been suspended for, you guessed it, traffic violations. Occurred on 07/28/15 at 7:13 PM.

The University of Texas Police Department responded to 14 Alarm Reports, 7 Suspicious Activity Reports, 7 Traffic Violations, 5 Unsecured Door Reports, 2 Welfare Concern Reports, 1 Found Property Report, 1 Medical Emergency Assist Request and 6 Public Assist Requests between 07/28/15 and 07/29/15.
