Boys to meet with BGSU coach over racist graffiti

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A judge is ordering two teens accused of scrawling racist graffiti in chalk in front of a college basketball coach's house to meet with the coach.

The (Toledo) Blade reports that a juvenile court judge ordered Tuesday that the teens meet with Bowling Green State University coach Louis Orr. The prosecutor's office had requested the meeting.

Police say the vandals wrote "white power" along with a swastika on the sidewalk in front of black coach's house in October.

Orr has been the BGSU coach since 2007. It wasn't clear when the defendants would meet with him.

The boys will be back in court Feb. 14. They are charged with delinquency in connection with ethnic intimidation and criminal mischief.
