In Maryland's Prince George's County, federal authorities appear to be taking over an investigation into the beating of an unarmed University of Maryland student back in March.

As part of that probe, FBI agents are interviewing county police officers. Federal agents visited the homes of several officers Thursday night, questioning them about what happened the night three officers were videotaped beating the student during a rowdy celebration that took place after a basketball game.

A police department spokesperson says agents plan to interview as many as 40 officers, with more interviews expected Friday.

There have been no arrests so far. The three officers caught on tape in the incident are either suspended or on desk duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
