RICHMOND, Va. – Virginia State Police have concluded their review of an arrest that injured a University of Virginia student and prompted allegations of racism.
State police spokeswoman Corrine Geller said Thursday that the report was submitted to the state secretary of public safety's office. She said she could not disclose the report's findings.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe ordered the review after Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control agents arrested Martese Johnson outside a Charlottesville pub in March. Photos and video of the bloodied 20-year-old were circulated widely on social media. Johnson, who is black, could be heard on the recordings calling the officers racist.
Last month, a prosecutor said a separate criminal investigation found no evidence that the incident was malicious or racially motivated. The officers weren't charged.
The charges against Johnson were dismissed.
