Roommate dispute leads to altercation

April 24, 2013

Another fight amongst roommates has resulted in campus police intervention.

MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said police were called at about 2:30 p.m. Monday to Bailey Hall following a fight between two 18-year-old male roommates.

Both claim they were victimized by the other.

One of the men said the fight started as a playful wrestling match, but escalated when he left to charge his computer and was punched by his roommate, who held him down and choked him.

The other man claimed a physical altercation ensued after verbal argument about the incidents in Boston last week angered his roommate enough to hit him first.

Paramedics attended to the first male, who had minor injuries, primarily to his knuckles, and broken eyeglasses.
