NEW YORK (AP) - The star of the Long Island University Brooklyn basketball team and three teammates arrested in a campus brawl had their suspensions lifted and were instead put on school probation.
The fight broke out during a welcome-back party for students last month. Police say the four players were arrested on assault charges after other students filed complaints and said they were injured.
Those arrested include Julian Boyd, a forward who was named the Northeast Conference player of the year last year, and three other players, Jamal Olaswere, Troy Joseph and C.J. Garner. The team is ranked No. 1 in the conference.
LIU's provost said Monday the students appealed their suspensions. They will be placed on probation and will be suspended for two games. They also must undergo counseling and do community service.
