UCLA fraternity member out on $100,000 bail


Paul Meyer, 20, was arrested at the Theta Chi fraternity house in the 600 block of Gayley Avenue around 2:30 a.m. Friday. Police said Meyer had choked an 18-year-old female UCLA student during a party. The details surrounding the altercation were unclear.

Meyer, a member of the fraternity, was arrested without incident on suspicion of attempted murder. However, campus police later clarified that he was booked on suspicion of assault with intent to commit rape and false imprisonment.

The alleged victim was treated and released at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, campus police said.

Meyer is due for arraignment March 12.
