The incident was captured on a now-viral video that has led to pointed conversations about racial inclusion on campus also sparked a rally Monday afternoon during which hundreds of students also the campus NAACP demanding action from elder school officials.
Jarred Karal, of Plainville, plus Ryan Mucaj, of Granby, the pair 21 years old, were arrested by the UConn Officers Department in addition to charged with ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race, university spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said Monday night.
Officers investigating the incident watched the video of the men yelling late on Oct. 11 outside the Charter Oak Apartments and ultimately traced their whereabouts back through the night, determining they walked back through the complex playing “a game in which they yelled vulgar words,” according to a officers report. Officers determined a third student seen in the video did not participate and was not charged.
