— One man was injured Tuesday night after a fight broke out between two roommates at North Carolina State University.

Raleigh police said the two men were arguing at about 6:30 p.m. when one broke a bottle and started swinging it. One man was taken to the hospital with minor cuts in relation to the incident.

Christopher Lawton Bradley, 19, of 4 Louise Drive in Concord was charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury and simple assault in connection to the incident.

A university spokesperson said that the incident occurred at a privately owned apartment near the campus that was not part of university housing.

One student who lived nearby said he thought the incident was just a false alarm and was surprised to learn it was more serious.

"It was pretty normal. I mean, ambulances just kind of come and go from these buildings all the time, just for false alarms normally," said student Joseph Hudson.
