The Daily Nexus reported, via Free Republic:

A group of protesters stormed Chancellor Birgeneau’s home last night, smashing windows and throwing torches in a violent demonstration against fee hikes and budget cuts. The attack ended with eight arrested.

According to a press release, about 40-75 people surrounded the chancellor’s house at 11:15 p.m. The crowd shouted “No justice, no peace,” hurled incendiary objects, scattered garbage and broke windows, planters and lights. No fires or injuries occurred.

The eight individuals – including two students from Cal and one from UC Davis – were arrested and charged with rioting, threatening an education official, attempted burglary, attempted arson of an occupied building, felony vandalism and assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer.

“These are criminals, not activists,” Birgeneau said in a statement released by UC Berkeley. “The attack at our home was extraordinarily frightening and violent. My wife and I genuinely feared for our lives. The people involved in this action will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I want to emphasize that they represent an extreme minority of our students.”
