UNC Students Punished For Roles In Post-Game Riot

Posted May 15, 2001

— Some UNC students will pay the price for a celebration that got out of hand.

In February, dozens of people flipped a car on Franklin Street, following UNC's upset win over Duke. Three UNC students admitted their roles Monday afternoon in the crime. Each must pay almost $7,000 apiece to replace the vehicle.

Chapel Hill Police say they may not be the last ones in court.

"We haven't closed out the case. There are a bunch of other people that could possibly be identified," says Lt. Brian Curran of the Chapel Hill Police Department.

Twenty-year-old James Haltom, 19-year-old Robert Davenport and 19-year-old Dominick Smith made face-to-face apologies to the owner of the car. Each student must also complete 125 hours of community service.
