So, a female manager stepped in to break it up.That is when workers say Beers threatened the woman and punched her in the face.According to the police report, Beers punched a female manager in the face, then while she was on the ground he stepped on her throat and pulled her hair.A melee ensued shortly after and Beers fled the scene, leaving behind his wallet in the process.The female manager who was victimized in this case was treated at a local hospital and is expected to be okay.The university released the following statement on the matter: "The university is aware of this incident and is confident that it will be handled in a professional manner through the criminal justice system.
