<ul><li><p>By JACOB DEMMITTTHE RED &amp; BLACK</p><p>Police have launched an all-out search for a man accused of attempting to kidnap a female University student downtown early Wednesday morning.</p><p>The student, 19, told The Red &amp; Black Thursday she was able to escape after elbowing her </p><p>attacker in the stomach.She sustained minor injuries.According to the Athens-</p><p>Clarke County Police report, the botched kidnapping happened at the East Washington Street and North Lumpkin Street intersec-tion at 1:10 a.m. on April 28.</p><p>Jason Avery Harris, 36, identi-fied as the assailant, was detained soon after the incident. </p><p>He was taken in for questioning, but was released shortly after.</p><p>According to ACC Police Lt. David Leedahl, the assailant approached the female student and began choking her.</p><p>The student, who said she was on the phone with her mother at the time, was then forced inside her vehicle.</p><p>Once inside her Jeep, the vic-tim stated the attacker held a key up to her throat and said, If you scream, Ill cut you.</p><p>She was able to escape the vehicle after a struggle.</p><p>I ran, then looked back to </p><p>make sure I wasnt being fol-lowed, the student said. He was sitting in my car.</p><p>An ACC police officer, who the report says was standing less than 50 feet from the incident, witnessed the victim climb out of the Jeep.</p><p>According to the report, she </p><p>See CRIME, Page 2</p><p>By PATRICK HOOPERTHE RED &amp; BLACK</p><p>Members of the Georgia Students for Public Higher Education gathered on North Campus Thursday morning to oppose the budget cuts facing the University but their cause was nearly silenced by administrators.</p><p>The protesters had planned to let the Chapel bell </p><p>speak for them, but when they arrived at the Chapel around 8 a.m., they found that the bells rope had been removed.</p><p>For them, ringing the bell which h i s t o r i c a l l y </p><p>sounds to signal football game wins, the end of the semester and dire emergen-cies was a symbolic act.</p><p>We think the budget cri-sis is an emergency, said Allie McCullen, an English and womens studies double major from Snellville. McCullen is also one of the founders of the Universitys branch of GSPHE.</p><p>The students planning to ring the Chapel bell armed themselves with handheld bells to make the most of the situation, but the rope returned to its proper place around 11:30 a.m. after the GSPHE came to arrange-ment with the University.</p><p>Technically, theres not supposed to be a demonstra-tion on North Campus, said Tom Jackson, vice president for public affairs at the University.

Art, that is.</p><p>When starting a new collec-tion, DeRoth quickly turns his ideas into tangible pieces with whatever materials necessary. </p><p>For his exit show on May 1, DeRoth will include paintings, sculpture, sound installation and a video.</p><p>I think of everything as sculpture, he said. Even when painting, you have to build the canvas. I try to find the easiest way to express my ideas, and usually its in 3-D.</p><p>DeRoth works rapidly so that </p><p>he can make a piece and move on to his next idea.</p><p>A lot of times, when I have a couple [of] completed pieces, its then that I realize how theyre all related and I can put them together, he said.</p><p>His art is idea-driven; its about the content, not the craftsmanship.</p><p>I dont think art has to be particularly well crafted, DeRoth said. If you can look at it and get the idea, thats good enough.</p><p>Many of his large pieces are made from materials he found. He tries not to make too many elements from scratch.</p><p>One of his pieces consists of </p><p>vinyl dolls he sewed circling a white picket fence. </p><p>A large sewer pipe runs from an old television set, crosses over the fence and deposits faux-feces in the center of the fenced area.</p><p>I dont want it to be too obvious or symbolic, DeRoth said, I just want it to trigger thoughts of why things are the way they are get people to think.</p><p>His collection for the exit show is drawn from personal experiences in Athens and is a critique of American culture in general. </p><p>I want to visually describe political issues, he said.</p><p>Art student opts for message over quality </p><p>www.redandblack.com Friday, April 30, 2010 Vol. 117, No. 153 | Athens, Georgia</p><p>sunny.High 83| Low 63 Index</p><p>News ........................ 2Opinions .................. 4</p><p>Variety .....................9Sports .................... 11</p><p>Crossword ...............2Sudoku .................. 11</p><p>LEMON-AID SHOULD I STAY?A Georgia quarterback has not been stamped with an expiration date </p><p>by his head coach.

She was trying to run so fast that she kept falling and getting back up.</p><p>Harris, who the arrest-ing officer saw standing next to the vehicle, began walking toward police.</p><p>His story was he was the one who fought off my attacker, the victim said.</p><p>After Harris told the officer he was helping the victim and had seen the assailant run down Washington Street, police told Harris no one was seen </p><p>running away from the scene, according to the report.</p><p>Harris was then trans-ported to the police station for questioning.</p><p>Despite Leedahl saying it was a possibility that the attacker would claim another victim, Harris was released from custody.</p><p>We will investigate to see how we handled that, Leedahl said. We will eval-uate and make changes to the way we handle situa-tions if we find we did some-thing wrong or there was a communication error.</p><p>As of Thursday after-noon, warrants had been issued for Harriss arrest.</p><p>Once we obtained the warrants, we did an all-out search, Leedahl said. Weve handed fliers out in the </p><p>downtown area and have detectives out looking for him. We have notified the University of Georgia Police Department that we are looking for him. They have assisted in the search down-town and on campus.</p><p>Although University Police Chief Jimmy Williamson said officers are actively looking for Harris, as of Thursday afternoon, there was no indication he was on campus.</p><p>Leedahl confirmed police found Harris clothes in bushes, where it appears he had been living.</p><p>According to the report, a witness told police he watched as Harris began to follow a different female near Nowhere Bar.</p><p>According to the report, the witness said when the </p><p>female stopped, Harris stopped. The female then crossed the street, at which point Harris turned around and began walking back toward Nowhere Bar.</p><p>The witness said he then watched as Harris began following the victim.</p><p>The witness then report-edly called 911.</p><p>As police continued to search Thursday, the UGA Alert System was not implemented.</p><p>Im always going to be second-guessed for that, Williamson said. But we didnt find out about it for 14 hours. It is for immedi-ate notification that requires immediate action. I have to ask myself, is ther...</p></li></ul>
