UAM Students Arrested for Fight at Pine Valley Apt.May 1st, 2013 by Joe Burgess
Around 2:30, Tuesday, Monticello Police, the Drew County Sheriff’s Dept., UAM Public Safety, and Arkansas State Police were called to the report of a fight at the Pine Valley Apartments, on HWY 425, at the UAM entrance, where a large crowd had gathered, at a fight where 6 individuals where involved, and a vehicle received major damage.
An argument on campus, about an alleged $20 debt, caused tempers to erupt at the nearby apartment complex, leading to 3 male UAM students being arrested. One person was taken to Drew Memorial to be checked out for injuries, and one vehicle was damaged during the slug fest, as a crowned of 20-30 spectators gathered.
Authorities then gathered at UAM’s Bankston Hall dormitory, attempting to locate another party. That person was interviewed and released.
Extra patrol was added to the area and on the UAM campus, and no other related issues were reported.
