Crime Scene - Video of confrontation after U-Md. basketball game shows police beating

The Prince George's County prosecutors have dropped charges against two University of Maryland students they claimed struck mounted Park Police officers and their horses after a basketball game in March. A video shot by another student, meanwhile, shows police beating one of those students without apparent provocation.

On Monday, a county prosecutor dropped charges against John J. McKenna, 19. Charges against Benjamin C. Donat, also 19, were dropped on Friday. The videotape was released to some media outlets by the law firm representing the students Monday.
