A University of Toledo student who allegedly assaulted several campus police officers and students was arraigned today.

JaVonn Morgan, 18, of Perry, Ohio, was ordered to be held in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $75,000 bond for one count of felonious assault and two counts of assault.

The first-year student allegedly pushed a desk worker early Monday morning at the on-campus residence hall where he lives -- 1760 W. Rocket Dr. -- and then got into an altercation with several men on the building's first floor. When police arrived, one was kicked in the chest, fell back, and hit his head on the wall. Two others were reportedly injured as they tried to arrest the suspect.

Police believe drugs were a factor in the incident.

Mr. Morgan is scheduled for a pretrial hearing on Oct. 26 in Toledo Municipal Court.
