A Pitt-Johnstown student was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest after campus police officers say they found him around 1 a.m. Sept. 29 urinating near Laurel Hall.

Campus police officers tried to arrest the suspect, James Harrison, twice, but he fled, according to a criminal complaint filed by officer Brian Colbert.

UPJ Campus Police Chief Eric Zangaglia said that officers found Harrison, later, but he tried to take off again.

Officers were able to subdue him, but Harrison fought back, according to the report.

Harrison was also charged with underage possession of alcohol.

Bail was set at $1,500, and a preliminary hearing was scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday.
