The Alameda County District Attorney's Office is still reviewing evidence against protesters who were arrested in connection with violence at the home of University of California at Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau Friday night, Chief Deputy District Attorney Tom Rogers said Monday.
According to UC Berkeley officials, eight people were arrested for charges including assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, threatening a public education official, rioting, attempted arson of an occupied building and vandalism in connection with the attack at Birgeneau's home on the north side of campus.
The eight people were part of a group of up to 70 protesters who stormed Birgeneau's home and smashed planters, windows and lights, according to the school's Web site.
It had been anticipated that the eight arrested protesters might be arraigned in Alameda County Superior Court Monday and today, but Rogers said his office is still reviewing evidence, including film of the incident.
Most of the eight protesters remain in custody at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin in lieu of $132,500 bail.
UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof said two of the eight people arrested were students and six were non-students.
Mogulof said a ninth person was arrested in a second incident near Birgeneau's home late Saturday night.
He said a woman was arrested after she was "very confrontational" with campus police officers who are guarding Birgeneau's home.
Earlier Friday, 66 protesters who had been occupying Wheeler Hall for several days were arrested for misdemeanor trespassing or resisting arrest.
The demonstration was part of an ongoing protest of UC's plans to increase undergraduate fees by 32 percent for all of its campuses for the next academic year.
