Thank you so much to everyone about your concern for my brother and his super scary situation.
Here's an update:
As more information comes out, the worse it gets. It turns out that the kid who was the ringleader has had SEVERAL situations on campus before.
He was arrested in 2008 for first degree criminal mischief, making terrorist threats, and felony aggravated assault. in an altercation involving a traffic accident with an Arkansas football player.
He was arrested AGAIN in May 2009 with FIFTEEN POUNDS OF MARIJUANA, and firearms. He had a hearing this morning in front of a judge but I apparently that was only related to the charges from May. He is still in jail and will have a hearing about the burglary of my brother's apartment. When they arrested him he had illegal drugs (steroids, pot, etc.) and illegal firearms on him. They are charging him in federal court.
I can't believe this kid has gotten in all this trouble and is still in school! How are people like this still out on the street?
There were 2 other guys involved (1 is still in jail, 1 posted bail), and one girl. Apparently the girl was the getaway driver. It actually turns out that she is a sorority sister of a family friend. What are the odds of that?
So anyway - that's the latest on that. I am going to visit my brother this weekend for parent's weekend and to go to the football game. I hope to God he's moved into a new apartment by then! Otherwise I will be snuggling up in between my parent's at their hotel room, haha.
Keep your fingers crossed that the judge does not give him bail.
