Student arrested on domestic violence charges

A University of Oregon student was arrested by Eugene Police early Friday morning following a domestic dispute.

The student, 21 year old Kun Qi, has been charged with three misdemeanor accounts of strangulation, 4th degree assault, and interfering with making a report. Qi was booked in the Lane County Jail at 5:30 Friday morning.

Given that the incident was a domestic dispute, no details about the case were provided, Eugene Police Department spokesman John Hankemeier told the Emerald.
