Dartmouth student Jarion Brown ’19 was arrested last Saturday, April 1 on assault charges, according to the Hanover Police Department’s press log. The Valley News reported that Brown pleaded not guilty to felony second-degree domestic assault and misdemeanor domestic simple assault charges earlier this week.

According to documents obtained by the Valley News, Brown allegedly attacked his romantic partner after an argument in Andres Hall, pushing her into a chair and choking her.

College spokesperson Diana Lawrence confirmed to The Dartmouth that Brown is a Dartmouth student but “is not enrolled at Dartmouth.”

The Valley News reported that Brown was transported by police to the Grafton County House of Corrections in North Haverhill after the incident and has since posted his $7,500 cash bail. Patrol officers Gordon Cunningham and Michael Alterisio responded to the incident.

A full story will be published in the near future.
