Princeton Forward Injured Fleeing From Police

Senior Princeton forward Jason Given, 23, was injured early Friday morning after falling from a 10- to 15-foot ledge while fleeing police, the Daily Princetonian reported Friday.

According to the article, Given was fleeing after an altercation at Triumph Brewery, a local bar, during Senior Pub Night. The article states that Given was asked by the manager of the bar to leave after he entered an off-limits area around 11 p.m., and that Given then poured beer over the head of the manager, who called the police.

The manager told the paper that he just wanted the police to escort Given home without further incident. According to witnesses, as soon as Given saw police arriving he fled immediately, eventually falling face-first off a Firestone Library ledge while being pursued by a borough police officer.

As of 3 a.m., Given was still intoxicated and under observation at the Helene Fuld Medical Center in Trenton. He was expected to be released Friday morning.
