American River College student arrested at Halloween event

By Laurel Rosenhall

An American River College student was arrested Friday night after misbehaving at campus Halloween celebration, a college spokeswoman said.

Timothy Lee Allen, 27, was booked in Sacramento Main Jail on suspicion of assault, battery and resisting arrest, all felonies, around 8:30 p.m. Friday, according to booking records.

Allen had been at the American River College "Haunted Festival," which included pumpkin carving, horror movies, trick-or-treating and a costume contest.

When he began to act out, a staff member asked him to leave and called campus police, said Susie Williams, spokeswoman for the Los Rios Community College District.

Allen did not leave, Williams said. When police arrived, they asked for his ID. He gave officers the identification but then grabbed it back and started to run, Williams said.

Allen ran into one of the officers, who then arrested him, Williams said.

He is being held on $25,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday.
