Michigan quarterback Brian
Griese's weekend run-in with Ann
Arbor Police Department officers may
lead to a misdemeanor or felony
charge, AAPD officials said yesterday.
AAPD Sgt. Brad Hill said a police
report states that Griese was at
Scorekeepers on Maynard Street on
turday night and was intoxicated.
cording to the report, after he was
asked to leave, he became angry once
outside and smashed the bar's main
window. Griese was then arrested by
AAPD officer Steve Lawrence.
Hill said Griese, a 21-year-old
sophomore, will be arraigned when the
charges against him are determined.
Griese could not be reached yesterday,
but said Sunday morning that he believed
the incident, which ended in his arrest,
uld not have any repercussions.
I don't know the situation on what
is going to happen," Griese said. "The
charges are dropped and that is the end
of the situation."
Special Assistant to the Director of
Athletics Keith Molin said Michigan
football coach Lloyd Carr is waiting
for the charges to be made before issu-
ing a statement.
"I expect that once the prosecutor
decided to take whatever action he
will take, Carr will make a statement,"
Molin said. He added that as of 4 p.m.
yesterday, no charges had been filed.
The severity of the charges will
depend on the value of the property
that was destroyed. No estimate as to
the window's value has been released.
Damage to property with a value
more than $100 could result in a
felony charge of malicious destruction
property. If the value is less than
600, Griese could be charged with a
Other football players accompanied
Griese to the bar Saturday night,
according to a Scorekeepers employee.
The identities of any athletes that may
have been with Griese are unknown.
A Scorekeepers bouncer said
Sunday that Griese was visibly intoxi-
cated and that he "was almost to the
int where he couldn't talk or stand."
The University's Student-Athlete
Policy on Alcohol states that if alcohol
is determined to be a factor in a crim-
inal offense, the student-athlete is
immediately suspended upon verifica-
tion of arrest, pending a meeting with
thehead coach or his/her designee.
The policy says the head coach would
then meet with the team physician
and/or substance abuse counselor to
determine what action needs to be taken.
Athletic Director Joe Roberson could
not be reached for comment yesterday.
Vice President for University
Relations Walter Harrison said he is
riot concerned that the incident will
affect the University's reputation.
"I don't think it has any particular
effect," Harrison said. "Everyone
knows that students at U-M occasion-

By Anupama Reddy

Summer vacation did not start early
yesterday, but many halls and class-
rooms were empty across Central
Campus in the first day of picketing
by members of the Graduate
Employees Organization.
The administration and GEO bar-
gaining teams failed to reach a con-
tract agreement in last week's non-
stop bargaining session. Union mem-
bers launched a two-day walk-out,
which ends today.
GEO spokesperson Pete Church
said the administration should take
notice of the strong support for GEO
and graduate student instructors in
yesterday's picketing.
"We had Skilled Trades
(Association) contact us, and two of
the construction sites shut down to
honor our picket lines," Church said.
"Our assessment is that the University
should take a look around the campus
and judge for themselves the impact
that GSIs have on the University com-
Provost J. Bernard Machen sent a
letter to all faculty members and GSIs
on April 1 about the status of GEO
negotiations and the administration's
response to the walk-out.
"I am deeply concerned about this
(walkout) because of the severe
adverse impact that a work stoppage
would have on all our students, but
particularly undergraduates," Machen
wrote in the letter.
Machen said yesterday he hopes
this week's state-supervised mediation
will settle the contract debate.
"Well, I think we're down to a few
issues," Machen said. "I am hopeful
that mediation is the step to finish
The administration and GEO bar-
gaining teams are scheduled to enter
mediation on April 10 and 11. The
contested issues are wage percent
increases and international GSI train-
Picketers said they are taking their
cause to the street because bargaining
talks have been unfair and stagnant.
"I am out here because I feel the
administration has given us no other
choice than to talk to them in this
fashion," said American culture GSI
Rebecca Poyourow. "The negotiations
seemed to have been stalled and not
entered into in good faith."
Poyourow said she understands stu-
dents may be dismayed with the walk-
out, but she said it is necessary.
"There really is no good time for
this (walk-out)," Poyourow said. "I'm
very sympathetic to students who say
that this is difficult, but I think the sit-
uation poses difficult choices."

U' regents stay removed from walk-out

By Jodi Cohen
Daily Staff Reporter
Members of the University Board of Regents
acknowledged the Graduate Employees
Organization's two-day work stoppage yesterday, but
did not want to comment on the details.
Regent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit) summarized the
sentiments of some regents when she said she hopes
the two sides reach an agreement soon.
"We have to let the process take its course," Varner
said. "I hope the issues in the negotiations can be
resolved as quickly as possible."
Regent Daniel Horning (R-Grand Haven) said he
does not think the walk-out is the best solution to the
bargaining stalemate. He said instead the negotia-
tions should remain at the table.
"I think it is very unfortunate that they had a work

short-lived and we will get this behind us."
He also said students should attend the classes that
are still being held.
"If a professor is holding class, I would support
going to class," Horning said.
Regent Shirley McFee (R-Battle Creek) did not want
to comment on the work stoppage.

"It is not appropriate for me to comment about
this," McFee said. "It is something the administration

University administration's efforts to reach an agree-

have," he said.

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - The younger brother of the
man who federal authorities believe is the so-
called Unabomber conducted his own investiga-
tion for several months before going to the FBI
after growing suspicious that his sibling was the
elusive killer, a lawyer for the family said yester-
In what has been described as an anguished
ove, David Kaczynski, 49, sought the assis-
nce of a Chicago private investigator and long-
time family friend who, along with a former FBI
behavioral science expert, analyzed the writings,
personality and travel habits of suspect Theodore
John Kaczynski, 53.
A Washington lawyer was brought onto the
case at David Kaczynski's request as evidence

think David wanted very much to believe that his
brother was not involved, I think he still would
like to believe that. . . I think he is somewhat in
shock. The family is going through a grieving
process. "
Theodore Kaczynski, who remains in a special
cell in Helena, Mont., reading newspapers and
books on ancient history, has had no contact with
his family since he was taken into custody tomor-
row. But Bisceglie said family members, who
have given him financial support over the years,
would go to see him if he expressed any interest
in seeing them.
Bisceglie, a corporate lawyer, said that neither
he nor David Kaczynski knew when they first
went to the FBI that a $1 million reward was
being offered for any tip that led to the

Robert Shapiro to
speak at Borders
By Jeff Eldridge
Daily Staff Reporter
Robert Shapiro, the architect of "The Dream Team" tha'
defended O.J. Simpson, is scheduled to speak tonight a
Borders Books and Music.
Shapiro's new book, "The Search For Justice," analyzes thc
Simpson case and the performance of major players in the trial.
Shapiro said he wrote the book to present his perspective
on the events and controversy surrounding the so-called
"Trial of the Century."
"I never gave any interviews during the case," Shapirc
told The Michigan Daily. "A lot of things were said above
me that were untrue. I want the public to get my perspective
based on the facts I think to be true."
He said he wants to make sure the public's view of the
legal system is not hurt by their perceptions of the trial.
"Many people think we're hired guns to get people off,"
Shapiro said. "I have never viewed myself as that:'
Shapiro said the media's approach to the trial differed
from outlet to outlet.
"You have real news. You have tabloid news. And you havr
shows invented to cover the O.J. trial," Shapiro said. "Youc
