Officials at East Carolina University are investigating accusations that police used unnecessary force when students rushed the field after Saturday's football win against West Virginia, the East Carolinian reports. The ECU police chief confirmed that some students were tackled or pushed to the ground by police officers and that punches were thrown by a sheriff's deputy. "I can't determine a reason why [these things] happened," he said, "but I can determine that they happened."

As of Monday, police have received around a dozen complaints and were still reviewing video and photos from the game. Only one arrest was made after the game. Check out the 22-second mark on this YouTube video, and make your own decision.
