Welcome back to school kids! The fall semester has begun with a bang, or should I say a thud, as 20-year-old Bridgewater State student, Alexander Marquez got really wasted at an off-campus party on the very first night that students returned, and decided to climb up onto a garage throw a dancing girl off of the roof. The video here describes that police think Marquez was perhaps “just trying to pump up the crowd”. The girl could have easily been seriously injured or possibly even killed.
Police were already at the scene to break up an off-campus party that more than 200 people had gathered at Sunday night. Students moved back into the school over the weekend.
The girl managed to land in the arms of many of the party-goers. She wasn’t seriously hurt. She did have some bruises, but declined medical attention. Police say the initially lost the girl in the crowd.
“Officers dispersed the crowd, dispersed the party. The victim, the lady who got thrown off the roof, actually got lost in the crowd. Our officers put it on our Twitter page and about 15 minutes later she contacted us,” said a Bridgewater Police official.
Police say they did talk to the 20-year-old. She is a student at Bridgewater State University.
Police aren’t sure why the man pushed her off the ten-foot high roof. He said that he got on the roof to try and pump up the crowd, but it’s unclear why he decided to forcefully throw her from the roof. He appeared in court Monday morning.
Stay classy Bridgewater! Keep treating women with respect!
