Clemson University police charge student in assaults

CLEMSON — Clemson University police arrested a 19-year-old student on assault charges Saturday night.

David Michael Sass, of Hanahan, was charged with resisting arrest while assaulting a police officer and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, both of which are felonies; and misdemeanor assault and battery in the third degree and public disorderly conduct.

Police were called to Lightsey Bridge apartments on campus just after midnight after receiving a report that a man was kicking a door, screaming profanities and had struck a student in the face. When an officer arrived, he was punched several times while making the arrest.

Sass was released on a $31,092.50 personal recognizance bond.
