Two Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College students were arrested Wednesday and subsequently suspended after an altercation on campus, according to school officials.
The district attorney's office is currently reviewing campus police reports regarding the incident which occurred just outside of the campus cafeteria.
School and county officials said the incident is linked to an off-campus fight that occurred Monday in rural Ottawa County. A female student was injured as she attempted to break up a fight between other female students.
Ottawa County Undersheriff Bob Earnst said Thursday that his office is assembling a probable cause affidavit and warrants may be sought on the women involved in the Monday night altercation.
Some students have alleged that the recent altercations are racially motivated, but campus officials will not confirm the allegations.
NEO president Glenn Mayle, was not available for comment Thursday, but in other published reports he confirmed that Wednesday's fight did involve one black student and one white student.
Security has been upgraded on campus in areas where students congregate and dormatory visits have been restricted in light of the recent events.
