A college student is facing aggravated assault and related charges after a dance at California University of Pennsylvania.
Alexander Ross, 18, of Pittsburgh was escorted out of a dance Saturday at the student union by friends when he became combative with police at the scene, Cal U Police Chief Bob Downey told Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV.
Ross charged at officers and wouldn't comply with their commands, so they Tased him, Downey said.
He is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, harassment, disorderly conduct, underage drinking and public drunkenness, according to court documents.
After an arraignment Sunday morning by Burgettstown District Judge Gary Havelka, Ross was unable to post $5,000 bond and remains in Washington County Prison. A preliminary hearing is scheduled before Brownsville District Judge Joshua Kanalis at 10 a.m. Dec. 11.
