LONG BEACH — California State University trustees have approved a 9 percent tuition hike despite a demonstration that ended in a struggle between police and protesters.

Assistant Chancellor Robert Turnage says the trustees reconvened elsewhere as the demonstration occurred at the doors of the Long Beach meeting room and they voted 9-6 in favor of the increase.

The hike will raise student costs $498 to $5,970 a year.

Three people were taken into custody during the demonstration and an officer suffered a cut arm when a door shattered.
