Police officers were called to a fight which broke out at a St Peter’s College bop on Saturday 12 October. Thames Valley Police confirmed that two men were arrested, one of whom was cautioned for possession of cannabis.
The two London men, aged 31 and 21, were believed to be friends of a bop attendee. They are due to appear at Oxford Magistrates’ Court later this month, charged with obstructing or resisting a police officer in the execution of their duties. Both have been released on bail.
Neither of the men in question are thought to be members of Oxford University.
Cherwell understands that St Peter’s porters managed to eject the two men from the bop itself, but had to call police in order to remove them from college premises.
One unnamed St Peter’s student told Cherwell that she saw thirteen policemen enter the bar on Saturday evening. She said, “There were a couple of guys having a fight – not Peterites, just randoms. But they brought all the police for crowd control if they needed it.”
She added, “It was pretty crazy for the first bop”.
