FBI Joins Investigation of Prince County Police

On March 3, a University of Maryland student was severely beaten by police and the incident was caught on video. Outrage of the video led to the suspension of at least one of the officers involved.

The incidence occurred during a basketball victory celebration. The student is seen skipping down the sidewalk when several officers approach on horseback. The officers  attack the student with clubs. At least three officers continue beating him after he is unconscious. Terrell Roberts, attorney for the student said on (CBS) The Early Show, that his client was told not to report his injuries.

Rich Wolf, FBI spokesman said that the video and all the events of the night are being reviewed. A Justice Department spokesman said they will also view it.
