SJSU Student Body Vice President Arrested On Domestic Violence Charge

SAN JOSE (KCBS) — The student body vice-president of San Jose State University was arrested last week on suspicion of domestic violence and violating a protective order.

The Mercury News reports that 23-year-old Joshua Romero was arrested at the Event Center during a concert by rapper YG.

San Jose State police say security noticed Romero preventing a woman from leaving, then used some level of physical violence. Police are not releasing any other details, but did say the victim is a 20-year-old San Jose State student.

Campus police were able to secure an emergency restraining order to protect the victim, but was able to get a hold of a phone while in jail, and called the victim a number of times.

Romero was elected to the San Jose State Associated Students leadership for 2016-17. He is a political science major.
