UCLA student faces assault charges after frat party
A UCLA student arrested on suspicion of choking a woman at a fraternity party will face charges of assault, intent to commit rape and false imprisonment, campus police said.
Paul Meyer, 20, was being held in lieu of $100,000 bail after his arrest Friday, authorities said.
UCLA police said they responded to a call about 2:30 a.m. Friday about an assault at the Theta Chi fraternity house on Gayley Avenue near the Westwood campus. They said the suspect, a fraternity member, allegedly choked the victim, a 20-year-old woman.
She was treated at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and released; Meyer was arrested without incident at the scene, police said. He faces a March 12 arraignment hearing.
An investigation of the incident is continuing.
