UO cheer member gets hit


A University of Oregon cheerleader spent Saturday night in the hospital after being hit in the head by a water bottle thrown onto the field shortly after the game.

Senior Katelynn Johnson was standing with the Oregon team when someone sitting in the southwest section of Arizona Stadium threw a water bottle onto the field, said University of Arizona Police Department spokesman Sgt. Juan Alvarez.


""If anyone knows anything about this they can certainly call us,"" Alvarez said.

UAPD will search any available video footage of the southwest section of the stadium to try to find a suspect.

Though a non-student fan was arrested earlier in the night for throwing objects onto the field, Alvarez did not report any other major incidents.     

ASUA did not respond to e-mails and calls regarding the incident before press time Sunday.
