GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) -The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into reports that some police used excessive force on football fans during East Carolina's dramatic win last weekend.
Officials said Friday the SBI will consider video that shows fans being knocked down by officers as fans rushed the field after the Pirates' 24-3 upset win over then-No. 8 West Virginia.
East Carolina is being fined $10,000 by Conference USA because fans ran onto the field. The conference said Friday the school violated a policy that prohibits public access to competition areas until the visiting team and officials are in the locker rooms.
Conference USA said the university also is subject to a possible suspension of future hosting privileges.
