Police arrested 19-year-old Jamar Dashillas on a warrant charging him with robbery in the Aug. 13 incident. A man and woman playing the popular cellphone game about 3 a.m. told officers they were accosted by a man who demanded their personal property and then battered them. The man suffered a concussion and a broken nose, and the woman had bruises and cuts.

Police say Dashillas is not affiliated with the university.

He is held on $75,000 bond in the Vigo County Jail. It wasn’t clear whether he has an attorney who might comment on his behalf.

Proper retribution would be to break this dudes nose and provide him with a curb stomp concussion, if you can dish it out you shouldn’t mind taking the same treatment.
