GW student spits on police

The GW Hatchet reported
that a male George Washington
student allegedly spit on a Uni-
versity Police Department offi-
cer after a minor confrontation.
After refusing to pay his cab
fare, the student confronted
the cab driver outside the car.
The University Police Depart-
ment witnessed the confron-
tation and attempted to break
it up, only to be spit on by the
student.
George Washington Uni-
versity spokeswoman Mara-
lee Csellar said the student
"seemed intoxicated" and was
first sent to the GW Hospital
for treatment before his arrest.

prevent this.
Professor Friedrich Sommer
said Isacoff's work with molecu-
lar synaptic transmission has
groundbreaking implications in
the field of theoretical neurosci-
ence. He said we are living in an
important time for discoveries in
brain activity.
"The time seems to be right to
really do something in neurosci-
ence. There's the Obama BRAIN
Initiative. In Europe there are
these big projects - the Human
Brain Project," Sommer told the
Californian.
