A UC Berkeley student who was arrested during a local protest shows that protesting in the age of social media has certain advantages.

The Daily Cal reported.

Jeff Noven, a 21-year-old UC Berkeley student detained at a protest last week, will no longer face charges.

Noven was arrested at the UC Board of Regents meeting in San Francisco on Wednesday on suspicion of vandalism and inciting a riot. Later that night, Noven was released from jail after he posted bail.

After his release, Noven started an online crowdfunding campaign to fund the cost of his bail. As of Tuesday, the campaign had garnered $2,661 in donations — $161 more than the goal amount.

Protesters occupied Wheeler Hall beginning Wednesday evening, where they called for, among other points, any potential charges against Noven to be dropped. He was originally set to appear in court Tuesday but was not listed on the docket.
