A student body leader at San Jose State University is behind bars for alleged domestic battery, police said.
A photograph by the university’s newspaper, the Spartan Daily, shows police officers arresting Joshua Romero on campus Thursday night. He was taken into custody at the university’s event center, according to Lt. Jim Renelle with the SJSU police department.
Romero, whose biography says he is from San Francisco, is the Associated Students Vice President. The fourth-year political science major said he dreams of “one day working in politics.”
Romero was booked into Santa Clara County Jail for felony false imprisonment, misdemeanor domestic battery and violating a restraining order, also a misdemeanor, Renelle said.
Further details were not immediately available due to the holiday weekend.
