Drunk Harvard student charged with punching, choking tutor

The Crimson reports the sophomore admits he was drunk, but denies he was drugged up, and says he initially approached the "resident tutor" at his residence hall for help with his inebriation but, according to campus police, wound up beating him up instead - and tried to do the same with police officers who responded. The student tells the Crimson everything's been cleared up, although he still has to travel all the way to Medford - the current home of Cambridge District Court - to face criminal charges that include assault and battery.

I wonder what the R might stand for?

Guessing not, given that he went after a cop.

Seems the student is a part of NAHC. Being a Native student at Harvard doesn't exactly scream "entitlement" to me.

What the going rate is to make a kerfuffle like that go away. Endowed chair? Library wing? Or just a few journal subscriptions?

Down where the hoi polloi live, A&B on a LEO could interrupt your studies.

That's low class.

Does that mean someone dared to speak to him in a non-deferential tone, and without bowing?

Before this saga is over the cops and the tudor will be blamed. He will get a CWOF in court and sue the cops for overreacting.
