Play associated audio

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) Federal authorities are looking into the beating of a University of Maryland student by three local police officers.

A video of the March 3 incident in College Park during a rowdy celebration of a basketball victory has led to the suspension of at least one Prince George's County officer.

FBI spokesman Rich Wolf says agents are reviewing the video and all the events of that night. A spokesman for the Justice Department says that after the FBI is done, the department will determine if civil rights laws were violated.

The federal probe was first reported by The Washington Post.

Meanwhile, Terrell Roberts, an attorney for the student in the video, told CBS's ``The Early Show'' on Wednesday that an officer pulled off his client's bandage and told him not to report his injury.
