UVA varsity athletes arrested
UVA first-years Michael Brown, a varsity football player, and Michael Giallombardo, a varsity soccer player, are off to a bad start. The two were arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with breaking into the Delta Upsilon fraternity house earlier this month and starting a brawl, a felony charge that could land the two in jail.
However, according to Ric Barrick, director of communications for the City of Charlottesville, "The investigation is definitely still pending. According to some investigators, a lot of witnesses haven't been truthful in some of their answers," the Cavalier Daily reports. "[Police] are giving them the opportunity to step up to the plate before they take the process any further; they hope they will take advantage of that."
The arrests, says Barrick, were made after police interviewed Delta Upsilon brothers and others involved in the incident.
