Marshall University

Police have arrested a man who officers say caused a disturbance on the Marshall University campus while possibly intoxicated.

WSAZ-TV of Huntington reports that students outside residence halls told police a young man approached them on Tuesday night, threatening to kill them. One student says the suspect bit his finger.

Campus police say the suspect ran after a fight broke out. He was subdued with a stun gun by university officers.

Campus police called for assistance from West Virginia State Police troopers.

Troopers say the suspect was taken to the hospital to determine whether the man had taken any drugs. The suspect’s name has not been released.
