NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Assault by auto charges have been filed against a man who authorities say was driving drunk when he allegedly struck and injured a Rutgers University student earlier this year.

Middlesex County prosecutors say Michael Schenck, of Franklin Township, also faces aggravated assault and DWI charges stemming from the Oct. 4 accident in New Brunswick. He was arrested Monday and released after posting $50,000 bail.

Prosecutors say the 30-year-old Schenck struck a 20-year-old Rutgers student as the pedestrian was trying to cross Easton Avenue. The student, identified only as a Holmdel Township resident, was severely injured in the accident and remains hospitalized.

A telephone number for Schenck could not be located Tuesday.
