Police Expect to File Charges in Connection with Student’s Fall

State College police expect to file charges against multiple Penn State students in connection with the two-story fall of a 19-year-old student.

The victim fell roughly 16-feet from a balcony at The Palmerton early Sunday morning. Police said Monday authorities expect to charge multiple students with furnishing alcohol to minors, including the victim.

The incident occurred at a party hosted by students, police say. Police say alcohol and marijuana played a role in the fall.

The victim suffered non-life threatening injuries and was transported to Mount Nittany Medical Center. The investigation is ongoing and police are in the process of consulting with the Centre County District Attorney’s office.

This marks the seventh time a person has fallen or jumped from a high place in State College since October 2012. Sunday morning’s fall was the first incident of the new semester.
