The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus police have issued arrest warrants for three people tied to the toppling last Monday of the prominent Confederate statue known as Silent Sam, multiple news outlets reported on Friday.
The three face misdemeanor charges of riot and defacing of a public monument. They were not publicly identified, as they have yet to be arrested, but none are affiliated with the university, a police spokesman told The News & Observer, a Raleigh newspaper. The spokesman said more arrests are possible.
