KENNESAW, Ga. - A Kennesaw State University student was arrested and barred from campus after officials said he became disruptive in a classroom.
Samuel Joseph Friedman, 17, of Roswell, was arrested Thursday and charged with simple assault, simple battery, and disorderly conduct among other charges.
KSU officials said campus police received reports about the freshman on Tuesday and opened an investigation.
“Based on eyewitness accounts, an arrest warrant was issued and Friedman was arrested the following day,” KSU officials were quoted as saying in a release sent to FOX 5 News.
KSU officials said Friedman does not live in the school's housing and as a condition of his bond, cannot return to the campus.
“As of the result of the arrest, Kennesaw State officials are following the policy outlined in the University's Student Code of Conduct and are taking precautions to ensure the safety and security of all students and the campus community,” stated KSU officials.
Further details surrounding the incident were not immediately available Friday evening.
No word on Friedman’s next court appearance.
