Male Breaks Roommate’s Nose In Calder Commons Altercation

You can pick your nose and you can pick your roommates but you can’t pick whether or not your roommate punches you in the nose.

One duo of Calder Commons roommates knows this all too well after a weekend altercation left one male with a broken nose after his living companion allegedly socked him in the face Saturday night, as first reported by The Daily Collegian.

State College Police were made aware of the fight after the roommate with the broken nose reached out to report the alleged assault. Though, as of right now, he is not pressing charges, it’s safe to say that he probably won’t have to do dishes for at least a few weeks.

Police did not provide any information on what set off the incident. There was also no word on whether or not the male with the likely now-crooked nose required any medical assistance.
