A biology professor from Stanford University was arrested in July for a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.
The Stanford Daily reported that court documents allegedly claim Hunter Fraser threw his girlfriend on the ground and slammed a door into her while playing a game with her and his daughter.
The charge could lead up to a year in county Jail. Fraser has not pled guilty.
“A police report was submitted detailing the incident,” the DA’s office stated. “The DA’s Office reviewed the evidence and determined we could prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.”
The DA’s office does not anticipate the charges will be dropped. The case is set for a pre-trial conference on Nov. 13 at 9 a.m.
