University of Maryland Police have slapped six students with a litany of charges including: disorderly conduct, arson and rioting in the wake of the March 4th basketball game against Duke. The students could face expulsion, fines and jail time if convicted of the offenses.

Paul Dillon, spokesman for University of Maryland Department of Public Safety says police reviewed footage from more than 350 security cameras and online video sources, like youtube and interviewed witnesses and suspects over the course of the two month investigation.

Dillon says these arrests are separate from the 28 students initially arrested by Prince George's County police at off-campus festivities. Four Prince George's County police officers were suspended in April after video surfaced of an unarmed student being beaten by police in riot gear after the Duke game. Prosecutors dropped charges against the student, John J. McKenna, and another student, Benjamin C. Donat, who were falsely accused of assaulting officers on horseback.
