Remember the UC-Berkeley student who at the end of June claimed he was racially profiled by police and then detained “without explanation or justification”?
And, remember how the Associated Students of the University of California — without knowing any of the details of the incident — unanimously (with one exception) supported him ?
Well, now that student officially has been arrested on vandalism and hate crime charges.
Ismael Chamu was picked up by police on Thursday, and is sitting in Berkeley jail on $85,000 bail. Berkeleyside reports he faces charges of “felony vandalism causing $400 or more in damage, the commission of a hate crime, hate crime enhancements and conspiracy.”
