Three Guilford College Students Accused Of Beating Up Palestinian Students

Three Guilford College students are free on bond after authorities accused them of beating three Palestinian students. Court documents say the assailants used their fists, feet and brass knuckles. The documents say the attack involved at least 15 members of the school's football team and occurred at Bryan Hall. Those documents also say the attack occurred late Friday, but a statement on the school's Web site says it happened early Saturday morning. Arrested were Michael Bates, Michael Robert Six and Christopher Barnette. Bates and Six are charged with three counts of assault and battery each. All three are charged with ethnic intimidation.
