Los Angeles city prosecutors say they plan to charge a student government commissioner at UCLA with three counts of sexual battery, one count of false imprisonment and one count of battery.
Omar Arce, 21, was arrested early Wednesday by university police after a female student accused the student government commissioner of sexually assaulting her over the last several months, said UCLA police spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein.
If convicted, Arce faces up to 4½ years in prison, according to the Los Angles city attorney's office. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.
Arce was initially arrested on suspicion of false imprisonment, but the city attorney's office said it planned to also add the battery charges when he is arraigned in court Friday.
