Prosecutor charges two people after LU homecoming concert incident


Prosecutors charged two men Friday in Cole County after they allegedly resisted arrest and trespassed the night of Lincoln University's homecoming concert.

According to court documents, Donja Ross, 19, and Glenn Smith, 20, were part of a crowd outside Jason's Gym that became unruly. The school held its homecoming concert at the venue Oct. 20.

Ross allegedly fought with a security guard. Court documents said he continued to swing his fist toward deputies after he was separated from the guard. Ross allegedly refused to leave, and authorities escorted him out of the building.

Authorities pushed back a crowd, which included Glenn Smith, due to safety concerns, court documents said. Smith allegedly tried to push through officers and verbally threatened them after they told him he would be arrested for trespassing. As a result, Smith was tased twice by officers and arrested.

Smith and Ross are due in court Dec. 6 for an arraignment.
