WASHINGTON –– The FBI is investigating a police beating of an unarmed University of Maryland College student at the College Park campus on March 3 following a basketball game victory over Duke, the Washington Post reported.

Embarrassing video has been airing on nationwide tv that shows three Prince George’s County police officers in riot gear beating the student. The investigation is being handled by the Baltimore FBI office.

Criminal charges of assaulting a police officer had been filed against the student John J. McKenna, 21, but the video contradicts the charges. The charge against McKenna and another student were dropped, the Post reported.

“Once the investigation is complete, the civil rights division will review the FBI’s findings and will determine whether there was a violation of federal civil rights laws,” Alejandro Miyar, a spokesman for the Justice Department, told the Post.

The Post reported that Prince George’s County Police Chief Roberto L. Hylton said he was “outraged and disappointed” and, according to the video, the student did nothing wrong to provoke a beating or be charged criminally.
