KAI-TING HUNG , a Taiwanese national and a 19-year-old student at SCCC in 1999, "armed with meat cleavers and knives, briefly took two people hostage at the campus" after receiving "a failing grade for the second quarter in an intensive English-as-a-second-language class," according to the Seattle Times. Hung was arrested and charged with two counts of second-degree assault and two counts of unlawful imprisonment. After charges were filed, according to another Times report, Hung posted bail and fled the country.

AARON SLAUGHTER attended Seattle Central in 2001. During a Mardi Gras event in Pioneer Square, Slaughter was "photographed and videotaped wearing brass knuckles and beating people," according to the Seattle Times. After seeing the 6-foot-3, 240-lb. Slaughter in King County Superior Court, where he was sentenced to three years in jail, one of his victims, a 19-year-old female, noted that Slaughter appeared to feel "no remorse."

WILL KOSTAS started at SCCC in 2002 and has one more quarter to go before getting his associate of arts degree. At night he works at a restaurant in Wallingford where he has to wear a uniform and where, the other night, he cut his finger with a pizza knife. Reached for comment, Kostas said, "I had to get stitches. Seven of 'em."
