Several UPD officers responded to a fight between three individuals. One individual tried to flee the scene when he saw the officers but was chased and detained. MPD officers arrived for back-up. Two of the subjects were arrested for disorderly conduct (one student, one non-student). The third individual, a student, who was seen taking a punch but was otherwise not involved in the fight, was not arrested. The two subjects were released at 6:45 the next morning after they posted bond. The GW student was reported as being extremely intoxicated.
