8 charged in off-campus Penn State-Altoona party

ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) — Eight people have been charged by police who responded to a party at an off-campus apartment complex housing students from Penn State-Altoona.

Police in Logan Township say about 100 people were in a parking lot of the complex when police arrived Saturday. Those who refused to leave were arrested.

Police also charged 22-year-old Bryan Coleman, of Glen Mills, with possession with intent to deliver marijuana after police say he clogged a toilet while trying to flush a large amount of pot.

Also charged, for reckless endangerment, is 19-year-old James Zabel, of West Chester. Police say he climbed a water tower then was too afraid to climb down by himself and had to be rescued.

Penn State-Altoona Chancellor Lori Bechtel-Wherry tells the Altoona Mirror (http://bit.ly/18oxufd ) the students are a “handful of our 4,000 student body.”
