Four WVU students, others charged in postgame riots

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Morgantown police have arrested four West Virginia University students and two others in the aftermath of last weekend's postgame rioting.

Three are from Maryland, two are West Virginians and one is from Pennsylvania.

With the help of social media, police identified  Kathryn Durko, 21, of Cokeburg, Pa.; Timothy Watkins, 22, of Westminster, Md.; James Richard Zito, of Glenelg, Md., and Alexandra Amato, 18, of Morgantown.

Charges against the four students include disorderly conduct, and battery and obstruction of an officer.

Police also charged 19-year-old Pursglove resident Nathan Hoopergarner with battery on a government representative or emergency responder, while Vincent Rohrbaugh, 39, of Germantown, Md., was charged with public intoxication.

Police say they'll be ready with new tactics to handle potential problems after Saturday's WVU football game at Texas Tech.
