pose of the forums: to give the

Committee a better idea of the
opportunities and challenges
facing the University, as well
as what qualities constituents
would like to see in the next Uni-

The recurring theme dur-

Intoxicated man
attempts to steal
pizza-delivery car
Daily StaffReporter
Pizza delivery has never been
so dramatic.
Sunday evening at about 7

p.m., a man attempted to steal
the vehicle of a Cottage Inn
Pizza delivery driver on the 700
block of Packard Street, just east
of the State Street intersection.
Just seconds after the vehicle
was stolen, the suspect allegedly
caused a collision, which result-
ed in his arrest.
The suspect - who Ann
Arbor Police say was under
the influence of drugs - stole

the vehicle that had been left
unlocked outside of an apart-
ment complex during a delivery.
After taking the vehicle, the sus-
pect collided with an oncoming
vehicle traveling east on Pack-
ard Street. That vehicle, a Jeep
Wrangler, was carrying two
passengers, who both left the
scene uninjured.
The delivery driver, Bryan,
who asked to be identified by his

first name only, said the suspect
"looked like a kid behind the
wheel for the first time." The
suspect pulled onto Packard at a
high rate of speed and drove in
an erratic fashion, Bryan said.
He added that the man seemed
to be driving on the wrong side
of the road.
Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Amy
Metzer confirmed the suspect
