Protesters Storm S.F. State Dorm, Cop Injured (Video)

Posted By on Fri, May 17, 2013 at 7:15 AM


A group of unruly protesters abruptly stormed a S.F. State dormitory last night while students were presumably trying to study for finals which start next week.

According to S.F. State officials, the unauthorized people stormed Mary Ward Hall at about 8 p.m. creating quite a scene. No word on what the rally was all about, but it certainly gave students a good reason to take a study break.

Police were called to the scene and attempted to remove the protesters who reportedly resisted arrest, said Ellen Griffin, spokeswoman for the university.

At some point a fire alarm was pulled and the dorm was evacuated, KTVU reported. In total, five people were arrested and one cop was hurt.

He was taken to the hospital, yet it's still unclear how he was injured or his condition.

Police stayed at the scene over night, checking Ids of anyone who walked through the door.

Here's a scene from last night:

Doesn't it make you miss college life?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
