A UPD officer saw an individual drive through the ditch to get to the parking garage in South Village the morning of Jan. 31.

A complainant called UPD to report a fight between a male and a female outside of Building R in North Lake Village. The complainant told a UPD officer that the individuals were fighting, and the female had jumped on the male. Then, the male had tossed her off, and then, they had both left in a car with two other males. The complainant knew the first male, and UPD attempted to contact him but failed. Eventually, the UPD officer talked to the male and the female on Feb. 6, and they said they were just talking and that everything was OK.

A complainant called UPD to report a person who appeared to be painting on the top floor of Garage 2 past a coned-off area. The subject was near a white Sedan, shirtless. A UPD officer located the individual in question and found out the male had his car on jack and was putting a wheel back, and he had also painted it using a stencil. The officer told the male that working on cars in the garages was prohibited, unless it was an emergency. Then, the officer told him to get his car back together and exit the garage. However, before he left, the officer took pictures of the paint on the concrete and told the man he would likely have to go through judicial and pay an expense to get the spray paint cleaned off the wall and floor.

A complainant called UPD and stated that there was a subject sitting on the first floor of Garage 2 wearing sunglasses and a bandana over his face. A UPD officer found the individual, who said his skin was sensitive to the sun and that’s why he covered it. The officer told the male that he shouldn’t wear it that way or more calls of the same nature would come to UPD. The officer also suggested the male to park facing the wall instead of against the sun if the sun bothered him.
