Connor Bird, 21, was arrested at Indiana University, the school's police chief, Keith Cash, told the paper. He faces multiple preliminary charges, including battery with injury, criminal mischief, intimidation with a deadly weapon and possession of marijuana.

No formal charges have been filed.

An attorney for Bird told the paper: "It is a private matter we are hoping to resolve as quickly as possible. We are happy no one was seriously hurt."
